GOST-R Certificate of Conformity

Introduction to GOST-R Certificate of Conformity

"GOST" is an abbreviation for "National Standard" in Russian. Before February 15, 2013, both domestically produced products in Russia and products exported from other countries to Russia must pass GOST certification, which is a national standard certification, according to legal regulations.

GOST-R Certificate
After the promulgation of the Russian Federation Law on Products and Certification Services in 1995, Russia began implementing mandatory product certification GOST-R. The GOST-R certification in Russia includes two major certification systems: mandatory certification and voluntary certification. The GOST-R certificate is issued by the Federal Bureau of Technical Regulations and Metrology (Rosstandart or Gosstandart). Therefore, the GOST-R certificate of conformity is also commonly referred to as the Russian Gosstandart certificate of conformity or the PCT certificate of conformity.
Identification: PCT
Identification: PCT
GOST certification in Russia is fast and affordable. You only need to provide product information, and professional Russian engineers will provide you with a certification plan and quotation for free. If you are satisfied with the plan, you can sign the contract. If you are not satisfied, there is no charge.
Gosstandart defines a list of products that cannot be produced or sold in Russia without mandatory PCT certificates of conformity (quality or safety). The normative act regulating this list is a government decree, dated December 1, 2009, Government Decree No. N 982, which states "a unified list of products (goods) that must undergo mandatory certification and a unified list of products confirmed to be qualified through a declaration of conformity.". Compulsory certified products are represented in this list as OKP codes (all Russian product classifiers). The list of products that require mandatory certification includes products that may pose potential risks to human life or health.
According to different products, GOST-R certificates are divided into mandatory GOST-R COC certificates (which have been replaced by EAC certification from the Customs Union), mandatory GOST-R DOC certificates, voluntary GOST-R certificates, and GOST-R exemption letters.

Different products need to choose the corresponding GOST-R certificate based on their own characteristics and relevant requirements.

The template for the mandatory product qualification certificate (product quality certificate) is as follows:

The template for the mandatory product qualification certificate (product quality certificate)

    • ①.  Compulsory certification product list: Electric power; Combustible gases; rail; a wire rope; Fiberglass; Cement; radiator; High voltage electrical equipment; Rolling bearing; Reinforced concrete sleepers; Filter; Lens; Sports firearms; Ink cartridges, etc.
    • ②.  Voluntary certification GOST-R is applicable to products, services, or equipment that are not mandatory for certification under Russian law, and is generally carried out voluntarily by manufacturers, sellers, or at the request of buyers. The voluntary certification system is equally protected by law as other systems. The main difference between a voluntary certificate of conformity and a mandatory certificate of conformity is not only the color of the certificate, but also the reflection on the voluntary certificate of conformity that has been processed through the "voluntary certification" method and signed accordingly. If a voluntary certificate is obtained, only the voluntary system logo can be used on the product packaging.

The voluntary certification GOST-R certificate template is as follows:

GOST-R certificate type and validity period:

    • One year GOST-R certificate: Within the validity period of one year, products of the same model can be exported without restrictions on the number of times, and in principle, there is no need for product testing and factory audit.
    • Three year GOST-R certificate: Within the three-year validity period, products of the same model can be exported without restrictions on the number of times, requiring product testing and factory audit, and Russian experts will conduct factory inspections at the factory every year.
    • Five year GOST-R certificate: Within the validity period of five years, products of the same model can be exported without restrictions on the number of times, requiring product testing and factory audit, and annual expert inspections at the factory.

GOST certification process:

Fill out the application form, provide detailed information about the product, have the certification expert evaluate and guide the implementation of the certification plan, conduct testing or factory audit (if necessary), and issue an electronic certificate 2-3 weeks after the data review is approved.

The following is the process for GOST-R certification in Russia:

    • 1. Applying for GOST-R certification: The applicant needs to submit an application form and relevant supporting materials to the Russian certification agency.
    • 2. Product testing: The applicant needs to send the sample to a Russian certification agency for testing and evaluation to ensure compliance with Russian technical standards and requirements.
    • 3. Review application: The certification body will review the application materials and product test results, and confirm whether they meet the requirements.
    • 4. Certificate issuance: After passing the audit, the Russian certification agency will issue a GOST-R certification certificate to prove that the product meets Russian technical standards and requirements.
    • 5. Repeated testing: Products holding GOST-R certification require regular testing and evaluation. The certification body will designate a testing agency to conduct testing and update the certificate.

It should be noted that the specific process and requirements for GOST-R certification may vary depending on the product category and field. Therefore, before applying for GOST-R certification, it is necessary to first understand the specific certification requirements and consult relevant certification bodies for relevant questions.

What certifications should be obtained for exporting steel pipes produced in China to Russia?

Steel pipes and pipe fittings produced domestically in China generally comply with standards such as GB, EN, DIN, BS, ASTM, GOST, etc. It can be roughly divided into five categories. Below, we will provide instructions on what certification is required for exporting these three types of products to Russia or Russian speaking countries.

The first category is sleeves used for building drainage or other purposes, or for use without pressure, or widely used in building drainage pipes. They can also be used for industrial drainage pipe fittings or threading pipes. This type of product usually only requires the application of a voluntary GOST-R certificate from Russia for such pipes and fittings. Or apply for a customs alliance exemption letter. This type of product is voluntary. Each country has its own independent certification, such as the voluntary GOST-R certificate in Russia, the voluntary GOST-K certificate in Kazakhstan, the technical regulation certificate in Ukraine, and the Belarus STB (GOST-B) certificate. All require separate application.

    • Required documents: application form, product manual/description/user manual, ISO9001 certificate
    • Certification time: 1-2 weeks;
    • Certificate validity period: generally 1 year, 3 years, and 5 years.

Type 2, Drinking Water Supply Pipes and fittings: For water supply pipes and fittings: Widely used in industrial and civil building drinking water delivery systems: Because they are directly used in drinking water delivery pipes, they involve customs alliance country registration requirements (hygiene requirements), and these pipes and fittings must be mandatory with State Registration Certificate/Cdvидеетеларарарственоррирериистрани Alliance Country Registration Certificate (CSR).

    • Customs Union National Registration Certificate SR-CU (CSR): Certificate Validity: Unlimited;
    • Required documents: application form, MSDS, product manual/description/user manual, ISO9001 certificate, product photos, packaging photos (outer packaging photos, zui small packaging photos);
    • Certification time: 1-2 months;
    • Certificate validity period: unlimited.

The registration certificate is commonly used in five countries: Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan.

Class 3, use in pressure environments: seamless steel pipes, welded steel pipes and fittings, widely used in oil field crude oil gathering and transportation pipes, chemical temperature and corrosion resistant pipes, hot water and warm water, fuel or natural gas and other pressure environments;

According to the Safety Technical Regulations for Pressure Equipment of the Customs Union TRCU 032/2013, the pressure pipeline here needs to apply for the Customs Union CU-TR (EAC) certification:

    • For steel pipes and pipe fittings used in gas media or high-temperature environments, a CU-TR certificate needs to be applied for;
    • For steel pipes and pipe fittings used in liquid or mixed media environments, a CU-TR Declaration needs to be applied for.

The Customs Union CU-TR certification/(EAC certification) certificate is universal in five countries: Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan.

After reading the above introduction, I believe you have understood whether to do any type of GOST-R certification for exporting steel pipes to Russia.
