Certificates of Conformity
|We can issue GOST Russia Certificates of Conformity (GOST R COCs) for your goods or equipment. We can also translate and prepare complete documentation packages necessary for issuing the GOST R COCs.|
IMPORTANT NOTE: on June 1, 2003 a new law, titled "Technical Regulation Law," has gone into effect in the Russian Federation. Since the articles of this new Law do not cancel/remove necessary and voluntary certification of products and overall remain practically the same, we have left excerpts from the old Law on our website, which are still valid. The full text of the "Technical Regulation Law" will be put up soon.
