A certificate of conformity is intended for certification of goods produced either by Russian companies or shipped to Russia or Custom Union by an importer-company. It can be issued for a batch of goods and for a serial production.

The list of products subject to mandatory certification is determined by the current legislation system and laws of the Russian Federation and the Custom Union.
