Changes in legislation

The Decree of the Government of Russian Federation as of 01.12.2009 №982 approves the following two Lists: the list of products subject to compulsory certification and the list of products, conformity of which is confirmed in the form of adoption of declarations of conformity to requirements of the Russian technical regulations. On the initiative of manufacturer, the goods released to the Russian market not subject to compulsory certification, might be declared on a voluntary basis.

The Orders of the Ministry of Economic Development of RF №3725 and №3726 as of October 28th, 2020, approve the new forms of certificates and declarations of products. The Orders came into force since January 1st, 2021 and will be in effect until January 1st, 2027. The forms used previously were regulated by the orders of The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade №53 and №54 as of March 22nd, 2006.

The important introduction is the ability to apply for certificates and declarations not only on paper but also in electronic format. Due to this, the blank accession number is no longer stated in the certificates.

The outdated codes OKP (Russian National Classification of Products) and TN VED of Russia (Commodity Nomenclature of Foreign Economic Activity) are replaced by OKPD2 (Russian Classification of Products by Economic Activities) and EAEU TN VED (EAEU Commodity Nomenclature of Foreign Economic Activity). 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. The last two figures indicating year of issue of certificate or registration of declaration are stated in the end of the number.

Moreover, the Decrees specify the fill-in instructions. According to them, it is forbidden to:

  • to add data, not provided in the forms;
  • to curtail words (except for standard designations and abbreviations)
  • to amend the text;
  • to use facsimile instead of signature

Users of the Information and Analytical system Globas can get the information on all the declarations and certificates including historical, suspended and cancelled ones in the section “Document verification”. More than 8 million documents are represented in Globas.

Companies with certificates of conformity

Information agency Credinform presents a ranking of the Russian manufacturing companies, declaring and certifying goods on conformity to requirements of the Russian technical regulations. Enterprises (TOP-10) with the largest annual revenue were selected for the ranking, according to the data from the Statistical Register and the Federal Tax Service for the latest available accounting periods (2017 - 2019). Then they were ranked by the product profitability ratio (Table 1). The selection and analysis were based on the data from the Information and Analytical system Globas.

Product profitability ratio is calculated as the relation of sales revenue to expenses from ordinary activity. Profitability in general indicates the economic efficiency of production. The analysis of product profitability makes it possible to conclude about the efficiency and expediency of release of goods.

There are no standard values for indicators of this group, because they vary strongly depending on the industry.

In order to get the most comprehensive and fair picture of the financial standing of an enterprise, it is necessary to pay attention to all the combination of financial indicators and ratios.
