TR Certificate

A TR Certificate is an official confirmation that the products conform to the national Russian Technical Regulations. The main purpose of the Technical Regulations is to protect the health and safety of consumers.

According to the reform of the Technical Regulations implemented in Russia, Technical Regulations should replace the old system of the GOST certification or GOST declaration, which no longer meets the modern requirements, and considerably simplify the certification process. With the entry into force of the new Technical Regulations old GOST standards were overridden. Products that are exported to Russia and subject to compulsory certification must be TR certified and marked with a TR mark in order to be allowed to cross the Russian border.

The TR certificate of conformity may only be issued by a notified body after the quality inspection of the products.

Legal situation

For the TR certification, the same legal basis applies as for the GOST certification:

Reform of the Technical Regulation within the Customs Union and EAEU

EAC Certifikate and Deklaration

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.

TR Certificate includes the following information:

The TR certificate is valid for up to 5 years within the territory of the Russian Federation and contains the following information:

  • name and address of the applicant
  • name and address of the notified body
  • name of certified products
  • detailed product information
  • names of the Technical Regulations

Area of application

The TR compulsory certification for Export to Russia is subject to all products covered by the government regulation of 1 December 2009 № 982.

TR Declaration

Declaration of conformity with Technical Regulations is a compulsory procedure for the confirmation of product quality. The complete list of goods requiring a TR Declaration for import into Russia can be found in the Government Directive № 982.
In contrast to TR certification, a TR Declaration can only be applied for by the importer of the goods.

The application procedure for a TR declaration shows only slight differences in the TR Certification process in Russia.

TR Declaration usually only has to be applied for for consumer goods such as food, clothing and adult shoes, furniture and various hand tools.
From 1 July 2010, the Customs Code of the Customs Union between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan has been in force. The new Customs Code is intended to replace existing national certification requirements such as Russian GOST-R, TR or Kazakh GOST-K standards by the uniform Technical Regulations and technical guidelines of the Customs Union by 2015.

Certification process

TR Certificate is issued by the Russian notified body at the request of the applicant.

TR Certificate shall be carried out according todifferent procedures. A distinction is made between: single deliveries, serial deliveries, and serial production. More info>>

technical documentation

Required documents

Each Technical Regulation has different requirements for the corresponding documentation. Typically these are:

Authorised representative

Authorized Representative
If the producer doesn't have a location in the EAEU, it does not have the right to apply for a required conformity assessment of its products. In order to still be able to be the subject of a conformity assessment, the foreign producer must give a representative in the EAEU power of attorney. They will defend the interests of the foreign producer when working with the certifying bodies with regard to safety and quality of products and in accordance with technical regulations.

As the law stands and in accordance with the Technical Regulation of the economic union only an operator based in the territory may be named power of attorney.

Obligatory marking of products

TR Mark of Confirmation

The products certified according to the Technical Regulations of the Russian Federation, for which a TR certificate has been issued, must bear the TR mark in order to demonstrate conformity with all legal requirements of the Russian Federation.

The requirements for a mandatory TR certification are covered by the government directive No. 696 of 19 November 2003.

Length and costs for TR certification

The length and 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 certificate can take from a few days to a few 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.
