GOST-R Certificate (With the other words, it is called the Certificate of Conformity with Russian Federation norms) prevents a sale of exported goods at the Russian market. CE Making and most international quality standards are not recognised by Russian authorities and goods imported into (or exported to Russia) are liable to various Russian certification.

GOST-R is an inspection and certification scheme that is mandatory for a wide range of products that are imported or sold in the Russian market. This certification demonstrates compliance with basic safety requirements and the applicable product standards for a defined list of products. Even if your products have been tested in your own country Russian regulations require that they be tested to GOST-R standards.
