GOST R Declaration of Conformity - GBSI - Global Business Service Information
An official document verifying conformity of the products to a certain level of safety and quality as per requirements established by the Russian laws. This is the approval document with equal (the same) legal effect as conformity certificate. The declaration is adopted on the basis of own evidentiary materials of the applicant or with the participation of a third party (research laboratories or a certifying body). The document validity period is defined by the manufacturer (seller, producer) and depends on the conditions and place of release of the products, as well as the chosen scheme of certification (declaration) of conformity as well as the type of the goods. There is no special letterform for a declaration, thus the document is issued on a regular white sheet of paper. Declaration of conformity can only be issued in a mandatory order, because voluntary issuance is not stipulated.
