Such services are basically needed at the time of importing goods to Russia and other CIS countries, like Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Armenia. This is the reason why most of the companies are generally recommended to keep tandem with complex certification systems, approvals, permits and national standards followed in the Russian territory. But, in order to operate the technical or industrial products in Russia (or other CIS countries), it should be noted that certification is difficult, or say, incomplete without proper documentation.

The Certifications Demanded
Listed below are some of the documents that are required at the time of import or operation of the industrial equipment:
1. Declaration of Conformity or CU TR Certificate
CU TR refers to Customs Union Technical Regulation. Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus formed the custom union in 2010 and thus, CU TRs are required to fulfill the unified requirements. These certificates are related to varied industrial equipment, like:
- Safety of equipment in explosive atmospheres
- Safety of equipment with low voltage
- Electro-magnetic compatibility of varied technical devices
- Safety of gas-fueled equipment
- Safety of equipment and machinery
- Safety of any pressurized equipment
- Safety of lifts
Further, a Declaration of Conformity is required to make sure that the equipment complies with the CU TR certificate. If the equipment does not fall into the category of CU TR, the DoC would not be required. In such a case, GOST R or GOST K certificate would be demanded.
2. Letter of Exemption
At times, when it is considered that the goods would not be requiring any type of certification, a letter of exemption is issued. Generally, two types of exemption or refusal letters are known – one for the custom authorities and the other for the business partners. There is no such difference between the two, except for the addressee. In the former letter, the head of the state customs committee is addressed, while in the latter, the trader is addressed.
3. Fire Safety Certificate
The Fire Safety Certification Body issues a certificate confirming that the product or the equipment complies with all the fire safety rules, state standards and construction regulations. All the domestic and foreign made products need to go through a product certification system to assure quality. Some of the products that require compulsory fire safety certification are as follows:
- Heat-generating equipment
- Construction products and structures
- Means to secure fire safety
- Electric and electrotechnical equipment
- Substances and materials
4. State Registration Certificates
A very short list of goods generally requires state registration certificates. Some of them are as follows:
- Household chemical goods
- Alcohol, Mineral water
- Water treatment equipment
- Food additives
- Personal hygiene items
- Special food products, like dietary food etc
- Hazardous chemical materials

5. Metrology Certificate
This type of certificate is issued for those instruments that have certain measuring accuracy and range. This certificate declares that:
- A streamlined calibration procedure is followed at the time of calibration tests.
- The instrument is eligible to be used as an official measuring device.
- The periodical calibration performed on the instrument is done through quality equipment (present at the Metrological centers).
6. RTN Permit to Use
