New lists of products subject to mandatory certification and declaration in Russia
On September 1, 2022, Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 2425 of December 23, 2021 comes into force, approving new lists of goods subject to mandatory certification and mandatory declaration.
Until 01.09.2022, goods subject to mandatory certification and declaration in Russia have been listed in Decree 982 of December 1, 2009.
The new Decree 2425 deals with goods that are not subject to any technical regulation of the EAEU, but are still subject to mandatory conformity assessment in Russia according to local standards.
On such goods, after the quality assurance procedure, the Russian mark of circulation on the market (STR), and not the Eurasian mark (EAC) is applied.
The structural changes in the new lists are as follows:
- for products, specific national and interstate standards are now indicated that are used while assessing;
- instead of product codes according to the old Russian classifier OK 005-93, HS codes are indicated;
- all positions in the new lists are simply numbered in order, without reference to the product code.
As for the content itself, the new lists in Decree 2425 have almost 2 times more items. However, this is not due to the apprance of new types of products, but due to the detailing of the existing ones.
