The certificate on the state hygienic registration (also called SGR) confirms the conformity of the products with the sanitary-hygienic regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The state hygienic registration was introduced on July,1 2010.
Since then, the state hygienic registration has replaced national systems of hygienic certification. This has resulted in the introduction of an uniform procedure in the EAEU which confirms the safety of products for human health and compliance with sanitary-epidemiologic and hygienic requirements.
In accordance with the decision of the EAEU № 299 of 28.05.2010 "On application of sanitary measures in the Customs Union" in the customs territory of the Russian Federation, Belarus and Kazakhstan, uniform sanitary-epidemiologic and hygienic requirements have been introduced for goods which are subject to sanitary-epidemiological supervision.
In Russia the issuing of certificates on the state hygienic registration and evaluation of the production data is carried out by the Federal Service for the supervision of consumer protection and consumer rights (Rospotrebnadzor). The obligation to register is subject to all products listed in the Single List of Goods, subject to sanitary-and-epidemiologic supervision (control) on the customs border and customs area of the Customs union as corresponding goods in accordance with the decision of the EAEU № 299 of 28.05.2010. Without the certificate on the state hygienic registration of the goods, it is impossible to apply for an EAC Certificate or an EAC Declaration and thus to import the products into the customs territory.
The certification authorities accredited by Rosstandart or Rospotrebnadzor are responsible for issuing certificates of state registration. The registration procedure includes an analysis of the manufacturer's documentation as well as laboratory tests and, in some cases, an inspection of the production. All certificates of state hygienic registration are entered in a uniform register and kept there.
The certificate on the state hygienic registration of products is unlimited in the customs union between Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus.
The certificate of the state hygienic registration can be applied for by the importer and by the manufacturer.
