The data on performed tests and measures and presented documents are included to the line consisting data on grounds for issuing the certificate or declaration.

The declarations contain the data only about the applicant, the line “Manufacturer” is excluded from the form. The line “represented by” contains occupation, surname, first name and patronymic of the company’s manager – applicant or authorized person, adopting a declaration. Sole entrepreneurs don’t fill in this line.

According to the Russian classification of countries of the world, the country code “RU” is stated before the number in the blank registration numbers of certificates and declarations.
