The expert opinion of Rospotrebnadzor is a document that certifies that the product complies with the unified sanitary, epidemiological and hygienic requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
It is important to note that obtaining of an expert opinion is a voluntary procedure whereas the state registration is a mandatory procedure of conformity assessment for products specified in the SINGLE LIST of goods subject to sanitary-and-epidemiologic supervision (control) at the customs border and on the customs territory of the Customs Union.
Therefore, if the product is not subject to the state registration, and the manufacturer or supplier of the product has to verify for any reason the high quality of his product and its hygienic safety, it is possible in this case to issue a special certificate - an expert opinion of Rospotrebnadzor.
The issuance of expert opinions is carried out by Rospotrebnadzor and is valid in every member state of the EAEU.
The expert opinion is valid from the moment it has been issued until the termination of products validity.
- An application form indicating the name of the manufacturer or applicant, his address, product name, product application, HS code, regulatory document used to manufacture the products;
- Information about product composition or ingredients;
- Material Safety Data Sheet(s) (for chemical products);

Tests are carried out by the notified laboratories on the basis of technical documentation and samples.
