World Wide Certification Logos

CE

The CE-marking is a mark that should be affixed to products that fall under the essential requirements of the European New Approach Directives. ‘CE’ stands for ‘Conformité Européenne’. With the CE Marking logo, the manufacturer or importer (also for products imported from outside the European Union) indicates that the product meets the legal requirements described in the applicable European Directive. All products bearing the CE-marking and that are in compliance have free access to the entire market within the European Economic Area (EEA). Products covered by the European New Approach Directives and which not in compliance with the applicable directives and have no CE-marking, can not be traded within the EEA.

The technical jurists of Certification Experts, can investigate both new and already CE-marked products to see if they are in conformity with the applicable European Directives and can guarantee a correct CE-marking for your product. Our product investigations are designed so that, at first, is determined the essential product requirements, and further only when this stage is in compliance, the total investigation will be completed. If during the test we must determine that a product does not meet all applicable essential requirements, we will the propose technical solutions.

In addition to the safety-tests, the testing of EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) is compulsory!

The CCC mark serves as proof that a product can be traded on the Chinese market, imported into China can be used in China. When the CCC mark is being used, the certificate-holder must accept the “Regulations for the Compulsory Product Certification Mark”.

GOST – R

Since 1993, the Russian Government enacted legislation obliging to certify a number of products and introduced the GOST R system of mandatory certification. The intention of this certification was to assure the compliance of goods to the Russian norms and standards and, however, to protect health and safety of Russia’s population, state and municipal property, to protect the environment, flora and fauna of Russian Federation as well. The document which declares this conformity with Russian norms and standards is the GOST R certificate. The distributors who break the certification rules and Russian legislation regarding certification of conformance could be punished by disciplinary, administrative or legal measures.

In addition, in Russian Federation established the directive of mandatory certification of goods and services (The legislation act Nr. 64 of Gosstandard of Russian Federation from July, 30th 2002). If the exported goods are listed in classification of goods for mandatory certification the GOST R certificate or its certified copy is required for customs clearance at the Russian border as well as for sell and/or marketing of these goods on territory of Russian Federation.
