If you are looking to export products to Russia, you will need to navigate through a complex web of regulations and requirements, including mandatory certification or declaration. However, if your product is not subject to mandatory certification or declaration, you may be able to obtain an Exemption Letter.
An Exemption Letter is an official document that confirms that your product is not included in the list of goods and services subject to mandatory certification or in the unified list of products subject to mandatory assessment of compliance within the Customs Union. This document may be required for customs purposes or for sales in the Russian Federation, tender participation, or state procurement.
To obtain an Exemption Letter, you will need to submit an application to the head of the Certification Body along with your company details, technical product description, and the OKPD2 or TN VED code. The Exemption Letter will contain the name of your product, identification signs, and technical information as needed. It will be valid for the duration of the regulations on which it is based, or in some cases, it may have a specific validity period of one year.
By obtaining an Exemption Letter, you can simplify the certification process and ensure compliance with Russian regulations, which will allow you to successfully sell your products in Russia. This is particularly important for foreign manufacturers, who may face difficulties with translation and the specifics of the certification procedure.
