TR CU confirmation schemes


Procedure for use of typical schemes of evaluation (confirmation) of conformity of Technical Regulations of Customs Union (TR CU) is performed in accordance with the Instruction approved by the Decision of the Customs Union Commission dated April 7, 2011 No. 621 and by the Decision of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission dated April 18, 2018 No. 44 “On standard conformity assessment schemes”.

General provisions

Confirmation of conformity (CoC) is performed in the form of certification or declaration of conformity, based on the typical schemes.

A typical scheme for confirmation of conformity is a set of activities (elements), the results of which are used to make decisions on the conformity (non-conformity) of products with the requirements of the technical regulation.

In general, such activities (elements) are:

  • Analysis of technical documentation;
  • Identification, product testing, product type assessment;
  • Production evaluation, manufacturing supervision;
  • Issuance of certificate of conformity, adoption of a declaration of conformity with technical regulations in a single form, approved by the Customs Union Commission;
  • Registration of declarations of conformity;
  • Application of a single product commercialization mark on the market of the member states of the Customs Union;
  • Inspection check-up.

Depending on the typical certification scheme, confirmation of conformity is carried out by an accredited certification body for products, an accredited body for certification of management systems included in the Unified Register of certification bodies and testing laboratories (centres) of the Customs Union.

Depending on the typical declaration scheme,confirmation of conformity is carried out based on the own evidence (s), obtained with the participation of an accredited certification body for products, an accredited body for certification of management systems included in the Unified Register of certification bodies and testing laboratories (centres) of the Customs Union.

Certification cost calculation procedure


When calculating the cost of mandatory certification of products and services, as well as registration of declaration of conformity accepted by manufacturer, OSP NTP Truboprovod follows the Certification Rules “Payment for Certification of Products and Services” approved by Resolution No. 44 dated August 23, 1999 of the RF Standardisation Metrology and Certification Committee (GosStandart).

General provisions.

Payment for certification of products and services is based on the following principles:

  • All actually performed certification work is paid for at the expense of the own funds of enterprises, organizations, persons who have applied for carrying out the relevant work, regardless of the decisions made based on such work results;
  • The profitability level of work on the mandatory certification should not exceed 35%;
  • Inspection check-up of mandatory certified products and services is paid in the amount of actual costs incurred by organizations performing the relevant work.

The daily rate of experts on certification of products and services involved in the implementation of mandatory certification, including work on inspection check-up of conformity of certified objects to the requirements of regulatory documents (RD), taken to calculate the cost of certification and inspection check-up, is determined by the certification body on its own, based on its terms of remuneration of employees.

Payment for registration of declarations of conformity.

Payment for registration of declaration of conformity is performed by manufacturer (seller, applicant) at twice the minimum monthly wage established by the Russian legislation.

As from July 1, 2016, the minimum wage rate used solely to regulate wages is established by the Federal Law No. 82-FZ dated June 19, 2000 (as amended by the Federal Law No. 164-FZ dated June 2, 2016) is 7,500 roubles.

Payment for mandatory certification of products and services.

Carrying out work on mandatory certification of products (services) assumes the following expenditures:

  • Certification body for products (services);
  • Testing laboratory;
  • Certification body for quality systems (production);
  • Services for inspection check-up for conformity of certified products (services) with RD, if inspection check-up is provided for by the certification scheme;
  • Services for certificate issuance.

In general, the total expenditures for certification of a specific product (service) (\( C \)) are determined from the formula:

$$ C = C_{ос} + C_{об} + C_{ип} + C_{а} + C_{ск} + \sum_{i=1}^n {C_{ик}}_{i} + \sum_{j=1}^{m} {C_{иск}}_{j} + C_{рс} + C_{д}, $$

где:

  • \( C_{ос} \) - cost of work performed by OSP NTP for certification of products (services), rubles (RUB);
  • \( C_{об} \) - cost of samples selected for certification tests (destructive), RUB;
  • \( C_{ип} \) - cost of product testing carried out by certified testing laboratory, RUB;
  • \( C_{а} \) - cost of production state analysis;
  • \( C_{ск} \) - cost of certification of production or quality system, RUB;
  • \( {C_{ик}}_{i} \) - cost of one inspection carried out within the scope of the inspection check-up for conformity of the mandatory certified products (services) with RD requirements, RUB;
  • \( n \) - the number of inspections provided for by the inspection check-up program for certified products within the period of validity of the certificate of conformity;
  • \( {C_{иск}}_{j} \) - cost of one inspection carried out within the scope of the inspection check-up for conformity of the certified quality (production) system with RD requirements, RUB;
  • \( m \) - the number of inspections of the certified quality (production) system for conformity with RD requirements, provided for by the inspection check-up program within the period of validity of the certificate of conformity;
  • \( C_{рс} \) - expenses for packaging, storage, disposal, loading and unloading operations, as well as transportation of samples to the test location, RUB;
  • \( C_{д} \) - cost of work on consideration of application-declaration.

The formula for calculating the certification work cost includes only elements that correspond to the composition of the actual workю

Expenditures of OSP NTP for certification of products (services \( C_{ос} \), quality and production systems \( C_{ск} \)) taking into account mandatory certification of specific products (services) are determined from the formula:

$$ C = {t_{ос}}_{i} \times T \times \left(1 + \frac{K_{нз} + K_{нр}}{100} \right) \times \left( 1 + \frac{P}{100} \right),$$

где:

  • \( {t_{ос}}_i \) - labor intensity of mandatory certification of specific products, according to the \( i \) scheme of certification, man-hours;
  • \( T \) - daily rate of expert, RUB;
  • \( K_{нз} \) - payroll standard established by applicable law, %;
  • \( K_{нр} \) - overhead ratio, %;
  • \( P \) - level of profitability, %.

Reference data for calculation.

Reference data for calculations are represented in tables of the appendixes of the Certification Rules “Payment for certification of products and services” approved by the RF State Standard No. 44 dated August 23, 1999 (as amended on July 5, 2002).
