The conveniences of the Russian Federation commerce are well known. In a situation of general financial development, also stimulated by the process of legislatorian and governmental reform, the occurrence of strong domestic demand growth has to cope with the limits of the current Russian production organization, emerging in huge possibilities for companies in other states ready to satisfy Russian demand, both customer and instrumental goods.
The administrative structure in Russia is very different from the European context in which we are used to moving with agility. If the principle of reciprocal acceptance in the EC market is obligatory and binding certificate, which is only requested for some dangerous or risky goods in Russia, most of the products destined for marketing on the national markets of the federation have to be certified to confirm product conformity to Russian domestic specifications. Considering the authentication of imported goods is not precisely the responsibility of the customs authorities, they are limited to checking the existence and trustworthiness of the papers certifying the properties of the foreign goods. The primary document is the certification of conformity promulgated under the mandatory GOST Certification System.
This national certification policy has been launched to safeguard public health and guarantee the security and quality of imported items that have flooded the internal markets of former USSRs.
