Any products and goods must meet certain standards and requirements. The accredited agencies carry out the product certification procedure measuring compliance with those requirements. It can be carried out in 2 forms – voluntary and mandatory. The customs agency BELVIAT provides qualified support services for products certification in the Republic of Belarus.
Voluntary certification is carried out at the discretion of the company, importing goods, to confirm their quality.
Mandatory certification of products in the Republic of Belarus is carried out to confirm the properties for those categories of goods, that, if of inadequate quality, can harm people. Certification of imported products has one main goal – to ensure the safety of the product for property, human health, the natural environment, protect the Belarusian market from unsafe and low-quality merchandise.
The procedure of obtaining a certificate of conformity
Product certification is a time-consuming and complicated procedure, which requires thorough preparations and good knowledge of the Belarusian legislation.
There are two types of certification:
- Batch certification
- Certification for serial production.
But, in fact, the stages of the procedure do not depend on the certification type and include:
- Submission of an application and documents;
- Consideration of the application;
- Technical normative legal acts analysis;
- Sampling, product identification;
- Product testing;
- Production analysis.
After testing full compliance with all standards and norms, an importer receives a certificate of conformity, which period of validity can be up to 7 years (depending on the imported goods). Each certificate is registered in the National Register. In Belarus state structures carry out posterior control of certified products.
How is product certification carried out in the Republic of Belarus?
Like with any other procedure, for obtaining a certificate of conformity an importer should begin with the preparation and execution of documents.
The following package of documents is required to obtain a certificate of conformity: *
- application for product certification;
- copies of documents confirming the origin of the goods (from what country they are supplied), as well as all shipping documentation;
- technical and operational documents;
- testing samples acts;
- documents confirming the safety of the goods (if any).
* documents may vary depending on the requirements of a specific technical regulation. Contact our specialists for a consultation.
