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 regulation 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 exported to Russia and subject to compulsory certification are TR certified and marked with a TR mark to allow the Russian border to pass.
The TR certificate of conformity may only be issued by a notified body after the quality inspection of the products.
For the TR certification, the same legal basis applies as for the GOST certification:
As a consequence of the harmonization of national safety standards between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, the previous national technical regulations such as Russian GOST and TR certification were gradually expired 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 more favorable form of proof of conformity.
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.
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 has to be applied only 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 entered into 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.
TR Certificate is issued by the Russian notified body at the request of the applicant.
TR Certificate shall be carried out according to the teaching procedure. A distinction is made between: single deliveries, serial deliveries, and serial production. More info>>
