No More GOST – Customs Union for Russia/Kazakhstan/Belarus

by G&M Compliance (March 28, 2013)

Products exporting for the countries above now need a Customs Union (CU) approval in place of the GOST certification for electrical safety. The new CU mark is now in effect, after several delays, and the GOST systems in Russia and Kazakhstan have been formally removed, however existing GOST certificates will still be recognized for import.

The approval is available in 1yr, 3yr, 5yr terms. Pricing is slightly higher for longer terms. A local representative is required.

Required for approval:
• CB Report
• EU EMC reports
• User Manual in English (Russian at time of import, but English OK for submittal process)
• HS Code (Tariff Code)
• EAC logo on label.
• CIG023 Factory Inspection Report
• ERGO report (only required for products with LCD displays)
