Ved exemption certificate

An Exemption letter is an information document issued by an accredited certification body for products that are not subject to mandatory certification and declaration of conformity.

The Exemption letter confirms that the goods do not require a certificate and declaration within the GOST R system and technical regulations of the Customs Union (EurAsEC).

You get an Exemption letter for the sold goods to provide to the controlling and customs authorities, as well as for cooperation with marketplaces, wholesalers, and retailers. They are issued for imported and domestic products.

There is no single approved form, but the format of the content is identical for most of the accredited certification centers.

Types of Exemption letters for goods are:

The letter contains the following data:

  • The name of the recipient organization;
  • TIN, OGRN, and legal address of the requesting company;
  • The name of the product;
  • The material from which the goods are made;
  • TN VED codes;
  • Regulatory acts, based on which the letter is issued;
  • Details of the certification center;
  • Outgoing serial number;
  • Date of issue.

How to properly execute an Exemption letter

In making an application for an Exemption letter, the information about the products should be specified in detail – it is necessary to list the specific names and compositions.

The name of the product in the Exemption letter must match the information on the product label.

In distance selling, if possible, follow the same recommendations. When filling out the product card on your own site or a marketplace site, use the product designations corresponding to the Exemption letter.

For which goods it is possible to issue an Exemption letter

There is no legally approved list of goods that are not subject to certification. It is necessary to proceed based on the opposite – to act by the method of exception.

An exemption letter can be issued if a product is not on the list of goods subject to certification and declaration of conformity. Namely, in Decree No. 2425 of the Government of the Russian Federation (previously No. 982) and the technical regulations of the EurAsEC.

If you do not want to figure it out yourself, it is easier to turn to professionals.
