Checking packaging products for importing goods to Russia

Within the framework of the EAC certification, specialists select suitable certification schemes for the goods, take samples and check them in laboratory conditions for compliance with the standards. After a test is completed, a reported is formed with the designation of all indicators. After this they are compared with acceptable ones and a conclusion on the issuance of a certificate is formed. We have the necessary material and technical conditions for testing of any packaging materials without the involvement of intermediaries. Therefore, the speed of work and the optimal cost are guaranteed. We will be happy to discuss everything in more detail and start Your project.
