TR Declaration is a conformity assessment statement that the products put on the market comply with national technical regulations and standards of the Russian Federation. This statement is mandatory for product export to Russia and placing on the market.
The fedral law of the Russian Federation about technical regulation set two forms of conformity assessment: TR Declaration und TR Certification.
TR Declaration and TR Certificate have the same legal force and are valid on the whole territory of Russia.
TR Declaration is on the contrary to the TR Certificate a simplified form of the conformity assessment and can be substituted by the TR Certification. TR Certificate cannot be replaced by the TR Declaration.
By TR Certification both the applicant (manufacturer, importer or an authorized representative) and the notified body in Russia bear the risks. by TR Declaration only the applicant is responsible for safety of the products and its compliance with the standards.
With the aim to replace the old GOST system, law № 184 "About technical regulation" was adopted 2003. 18 technical regulation (TR) of the Russian Federation came into force.
Nontheless the TR system did not have large dispersion because 2011 new technical regulations of the Customs Union, later Eurasian Economic Union (TR ZU and TR EAEU) were elaborated. TR CU and TR EAEU have replaced the old TR regulation successively.
Legal framework of the TR Declaration:
- Law № 184 of the Russian Federation "About technical regulation" 27.12.2002
- Law № 116 of the Russian Federation "About industrial security" 21.07.1997
- Law № 69 of the Russian Federation "About fire safety " 21.12.1994
- Governmental order № 982 December 1, 2009
The products listed in the Annex to Governmental order № 982 are subject to TR Declaration. For these products listed in the Annex TR Declaration is obligatory. Without TR Declaration it is impossible to import goods to Russia.
Only a company established in the territory of the customs union may apply for TR conformity assessment statement.
Schmidt & Schmidt has a branch office in Russia and thus has the right to act as an authorized representative in conformity confirmation for companies from abroad,
Reform of the technical regulation within the scope of the Eurasian Economic Union
As a consequence of the coordination of national safety standards between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, the previous national Technical Regulations such as Russian GOST and TR certification were gradually phased out and substituted by the new Technical Regulations of the EAEU (TR EAEU) in every industrial sector. In addition to the EAC certification, the EAC declarartion has also been introduced in the Customs Union as a simpler and less expensive form of proof of conformity.
The new system was modelled on the european CE marking and many Technical Regulations are coordinated with EU guidelines. One can say that the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union correspond to the EU guidelines.
