Belarus temporarily simplifies certification procedure

Belarus certification procedure

Belarus temporarily simplifies certification procedure. On May 6, 2022 Resolution of the Council of Ministers of Belarus № 270 dated 29.04.2022 «On specificities of type conformity assessment procedure» came into force. The main provisions that relate to the confirmation of compliance of products to release into circulation in Belarus are listed below:

  1. The period of validity of documents on conformity assessment is extended

Conformity assessment documents that expire between May 6, 2022 and September 01, 2022 are extended for 12 months without the need to re-assess the conformity of products or conduct an inspection control procedure for products that are produced and (or) released in circulation on the territory of Belarus. The Customer should submit an application to the Certification Body that issued certificate for obtaining new conformity assessment documents (certificate, declaration) for 12 months.

  1. Inspection control can be transferred

Inspection control that was planned for 2022 can be postponed for up to 12 months in agreement with the Certificate owner.

  1. Products for which it is not required to provide certificates and declarations of conformity

It is not required to provide documents on conformity assessment (and even information about such documents) for spare parts, accessories, components, raw materials, etc. when imported into the territory of Belarus.

  1. For re-certification it is possible to use factory inspection reports and test reports for three years provided if there are no changes in standards and in product design.
  1. Certification can be replaced by declaration for a batch or a single product.

This provision can be applied only for the list of products in respect of which it is necessary to take critical measures of state regulation. If such measures are required the product list will be developed and confirmed by a Working Group of the Council of Ministers of Belarus. If such a list is accepted, we will inform you accordingly.

The Resolution № 270 dated 29.04.2022 is valid from May 06, 2022 until December 31, 2023. It doesn’t cancel the EAEU certification procedure and national Belarus certification procedure. This document gives some relief when importing products into the territory of the Belarus. EAEU is currently developing temporary measures on optimization (simplification) of product conformity assessment procedures. As soon as it come into force we will inform you accordingly.
