Mandatory certification body

In accordance with provisions of the Federal Law № 184 “On Technical Regulation”, effected in 2003 in the Russian Federation, technical devices development, adoption, application, production, construction (including buildings and structures), installation, adjustment, operation, storage, transportation, sale and disposal should be provided in accordance with the requirements of technical regulations.

Technical regulation (hereinafter the TR) is a legal act, which establishes obligatory for use and implementation requirements to the technical regulation facilities (products, including buildings and structures, production processes, operation, storage, transportation, sale and disposal).

Certification body of the products applied at hazardous industrial facilities, offshore facilities and transport provided by NBE Ltd. (hereinafter CB NBE) has been established on the base of NBE Ltd. NBE Ltd. has been accredited by the Federal Service for Accreditation in 2017, Accreditation Certificate № ROSS _____________________

Obligatory certification and declaration
Obligatory certification or declaration shall mean products compliance (technical devices, equipment) used at hazardous industrial facilities (HIF), offshore facilities and transport at any stage of the life cycle (design, manufacture, storage, transportation, sale, operation and disposal) with TR requirements.
TR, valid on the territory of the Russian Federation, can be divided into two groups:

1st group: technical regulations of the Russian Federation (hereinafter the TR RF);

2nd group: technical regulations of the Customs Union (hereinafter the TR CU).

A document, confirming products compliance with TR requirements, is a Certificate of Con-formity or Declaration of Conformity.

Obligatory certification or Declaration of Conformity are required in cases when the products are include in the “Single list of products subjecting to obligatory certification, and a single list of products, which conformity confirmation is made in the form of Declaration of Conformity acceptance” (approved by the RF Government Decree № 982 dated 01.12. 2009 - as amended), as well as in the “Single list of products subjecting to obligatory assessment (confirmation) within the Customs Union with the uniform documents issuance” (Decision of the Commission of the Customs Union dated 07.04.2011, № 620 - as amended) and related Technical Regulations of the Customs Union.

Certificate of Conformity or Declaration of Conformity shall be issued or registered, correspond-ingly, by the accredited certification body in accordance with the OKP code (Foreign Trade No-menclature of Goods (FTNG)) assigned to the products.

You can check whether the products are subject to certification/declaration for compliance with TR requirements, in accordance with provisions of “Consolidated information list of products subjecting to obligatory compliance confirmation in FTNG CU Codes”.

It should be noted that Declaration of Conformity versus the Certificate of Conformity shall be issued only on a mandatory basis.

Declaration of Conformity is an obligatory document but from a legal perspective, it has equal power with Certificate. If it is established by the law that the products conformity shall be de-clared, then technical devices release into circulation is not possible without registered declara-tion.

Specialists and experts of our company have a wide experience and required accreditation for certificates/declarations registration for compliance with the technical regulations.

Certificate of Conformity/Declaration of Conformity to TR CU requirements grants its holder a right to sell its products and apply a single products conformity mark on the market of the Cus-toms Union States - Members and demonstrates that the products, having a single conformity mark, fully meet the requirements of human life and health safety, established in the technical regulations.
