Certificate of state registration

From IFCG Encyclopedia

The Certificate of state registration of the product (CSR) is a document that confirms that the product is safe for human health and that it meets the common sanitary regulations and hygienic standards of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

Certificate of state registration is required for import of products to the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union and their further sale within the territory of the EAEU member states – Russia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Kazakhstan.

The EAEU authorized bodies register products and issue the Certificate. In Russia, such authorized body is the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor). Certificates of state registration are valid within the whole EAEU territory regardless of the country they were issued in.

Products that require State registration

The list of products that require the State registration and issuing the Certificate is defined in Part II of Decision of the Commission of Custom Union No 299 of May 28, 2010.

Thus, the following products require the Certificate of state registration:

  • Nutrition products for children
  • Disinfection, pest and rat control means
  • Household chemicals (dish-washing and floor cleaning liquid)
  • Potentially harmful chemical and biological substances
  • Pipes and fittings used in domestic water supply systems
  • Personal hygienic products for adults
  • Products intended for direct contact with food (except tableware, technical equipment and tin packing machines).
  • Certain other products

Both the EAEU HS code and the name of the product should be considered to determine whether the state registration is necessary. The products that require state registration should be mentioned in both columns of the table from Part II of the Common list of products.

Thus, for example, HS code 3307 for body sprays is included in the left part of the table, but no body sprays mentioned in the right part. Hence the certificate of state registration is not required for body sprays.

Group 33

Essential oil and resinoids; perfumery, cosmetic or toilet preparations

From 3307 Room deodorant, perfumed or not with disinfectant properties

According to the Part II of the Common list of products the State registration is not required for the following products, regardless of their EAEU HS codes:

  • product samples;
  • laboratory glassware;
  • souvenirs, cosmetic accessories;
  • product samples for exhibitions and advertising not intended for sale within the EAEU;
  • second-hand products;
  • products sold in duty free shops;
  • humanitarian aid;
  • etc.

In addition, State registration is not required for raw materials, active agents that are used only for production of perfumery and cosmetics, household chemistry, disinfection, pest and rat control means and pharmaceuticals, some salts and esters. The Certificate of state registration may be issued for several names of products provided that all these products are produces by the same manufacturer in accordance with the same technical requirements, their design and intended use are almost identical and their insignificantly different features (packaging, slight design variations) have no impact on their safety record.

Documents required for issuing of the Certificate

Both the importer and the manufacturer of the product (including foreign manufacturers) may be applicant for the Certificate of state registration. The procedure of the Certificate issuing is the same in both cases, but the list of documents required will be slightly different.

The foreign applicant (manufacturer) should submit the following documents:

  • product composition in %
  • MSDS
  • ISO certificate
  • label or its draft
  • free sale certificate
  • quality declaration issued in the manufacturing state
  • user’s manual
  • copy of the contract and/or the invoice

All the documents should be translated into the Russian language. The applicant shall receive the product test report/reports and the expert conclusion along with the Certificate.
