“The Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Economic Development have issued additional instructions concerning temporary measures for control inspections, sampling and other planned work in a difficult epidemiological situation due to the pandemic caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19)” This may apply to your company if you have any exports to Russia in the near future. Due to the crisis, a recommendation has been made below which will affect certification practices

1. Annual inspections – serial products If an annual inspection is scheduled between the period 15.3.2020-31.12.2020, it is possible to postpone this by up to 6 months.

2. If the certificate expires during quarantine Based on the results of the last annual inspection, it is possible to renew the certificate without a separate visit.

3. New serial product certificates

During the quarantine, no new serial product certificates will be issued, only batch
certificates.

Contact us, we will tell you more specifically about the different options and the application of the instructions in your case.
