Fire Safety Certificate for Russia

For certain products, the so-called fire safety certificate is required by the customs authorities for import into the Russian customs territory. The fire safety certificate is an official proof that confirms the conformity of the goods with the fire regulations. These are the resistance to fire and functional safety as well as the precautions against the formation of toxic gases.

The fire safety certificate requirement applies to both domestic products and products imported into Russia. The certification is carried out according to the regulations of the "Technical Rules". The fire safety certification is necessary for the import of certain types of goods to Russia and their distribution on the Russian market.

In Russia, the fire safety certification can be carried out both in the obligatory or voluntary way and in the form of the supplier declaration.

The test report of the laboratory as well as the results of the examination on site are necessary prerequisites for the issuance of a fire safety certificate. Each certificate issued is entered in the register of the accredited certification body and contains details on the tests and examinations conducted.

Legal framework

The basis for fire safety certification is built by the Legislation of the Russian Federation, especially by:

Area of application

The fire safety certification is obliged for all products and products listed in the government directive of 17.03.2009 № 241. The regulation covers, inter alia, the following product groups:

  • fire-fighting equipment, e.g. fire extinguishers, fire hoses, etc.
  • building materials and materials, in particular insulation materials, claddings, floor coverings, etc.
  • power cable
  • gas heating systems

If the products are not listed in the aforementioned government directive, a Exemption Letter may be issued upon request or a voluntary certification may be carried out.

The fire safety certification is only possible on the basis of tests and laboratory tests carried out by a notified body. The so-called Emergency Ministry is responsible for such accreditation in Russia.

Required documents

We develop and translate the technical documentation, which is needed for EAC Certificat or EAC Declaration according to technical regulations

For the application for a fire safety certificate, the following documents must be submitted by the notified body:

  • application for certification
  • information about the manufacturer and his address
  • detailed product description
  • technical documentation, e.g. operating instructions, technical drawings, etc
  • customs tariff number
  • existing certificates

Depending on the type of goods that need to be certified, additional documents may be required.

Certification process

After providing all necessary documents and test copies, the laboratory shall carry out appropriate laboratory tests.

During lab tests, the goods are examined for a variety of requirements according to different criteria. The test protocol records the degree of conformity with the fire safety requirements as well as other properties of the goods. Different test methods are used depending on the type of product.

In addition, an inspection of the production conditions can also be carried out on site.

No on-site inspection is necessary for serial or delivery certification. If the manufacturer has an ISO 9001 quality management certificate, production control is also omitted. It is important to note that the ISO 9001 certificate also considerably simplifies many other certification procedures.

As a prerequisite for issuing a fire protection certificate in Russia, the test protocol of the laboratory tests and the results of the on-site inspection are valid. Each fire safety certificate issued is entered into the database by the notified body. Each certificate contains information on the laboratory tests and examinations carried out.

A certificate is issued for the certified products and confirms that all the necessary tests have been carried out successfully and that the goods meet the requirements of the law. The goods are marked with a special mark. The certificate can be requested from the manufacturer as well as from the importer.

Fire safety certificate can be issued with a validity of up to 5 years.

Terms and costs for certification

The terms and the costs associated with a certificate application, depend on several different factors, such as the classification of product, any required laboratory checks and complexity of all examinations. As such the exact conditions of the certification are always determined individually based on the required documentation.

Please note that an application for a fire safety certificate can take few days or weeks to process.

In our video, we explain what an EAC Certification is and how and where to certify or declare your products for the introduction on the EAEU market.

The EAC Certification and the EAC Declaration are complex procedures that attest your products the conformity with the technical regulations of the EAEU and require a lot of know-how. Schmidt & Schmidt will support you with the certification of your products for the EAEU market.

The EAC certificate of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is an official document, that proofs the conformity of the products with the harmonized technical regulations of the member states of the EAEU. The products, whose conformity with the technical regulations could be confirmed by the certificate of the EAEU, may be moved and sold in the whole customs area of the member states of the EAEU.

The EAC Declaration of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is an official document that proofs, that the products meet the minimum requirements of the technical regulations of the EAEU. An EAC declaration is issued by the manufacturer, importer or an authorized representative and listed in the official register. Those products, whose conformity with the technical regulations are confirmed by the declaration, have the permission to be freely moved and sold in the whole customs territory of the member states of the EAEU.

The EAC certificate can only be issued after a quality assessment, which has to be carried out by a certification body accredited in one of the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union. The certification is conducted on the basis of technical documentations, company-internal created test reports, or rather test reports provided by accredited test laboratories, as well as on basis of a manufacturing audit on site. The certificate is printed on an official pre-printed form, which has several forgery-proof elements and is authenticated by the signature and seal of an accredited body. The EAC certificate is usually issued for “complex” products that require an extensive control by the authorities.

With the EAC Declaration the manufacturer, importer or authorized representative declares the conformity of his products with the minimum requirements of the technical regulation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). As distinguished from the EAC certificate, the EAC declaration is issued by the manufacturer or importer himself. All necessary tests and analysis are or made by the manufacturer or in some cases by the laboratory. The applicant issues the EAC declaration himself on a usual piece of paper. The EAC declaration has to be listed in the uniform register of the EAEU by an accredited certification body of one of the member states of the EAEU.

Despite sanctions and political disputes, the Eurasian and especially the Russian market remain attractive for many european manufacturers. The corresponding conformity assessment - EAC certification or EAC declaration - is a major obstacle for many foreign entrepreneurs due to its complexity, language differences and the very dynamic development of technical regulations and legislation in the field of industrial safety and consumer protection.
