Exporting to Russia - SGS continues to be first

Keywords Russia, Export

Most products exported to Russia require GOST R Certification in order to pass through customs and to be offered for sale. After a comprehensive audit of its GOST operations by Russian Experts, the accreditation for SGS has been renewed for a period of 5 years.

SGS United Kingdom Ltd continues to be the only organisation in the UK authorised to provide GOST Certification for a wide range of products including industrial, mechanical, electrical and also consumer products such as food, cosmetics and toys.

Russia is a market too large to ignore, despite present short-term uncertainty. This makes it a market of enormous potential and a promising long-term trading partner. Therefore, for free advice as to whether your products require GOST R certification, please contact Sergey Putintsev on + 44 (0)1276 697890.
