SGS Accreditation Scope in the Customs Union with Regard to Industrial Equipment Extended
We are pleased to inform you due to the previous accreditation term coming to its end SGS Vostok Limited has been re-accredited by the Federal Service for Accreditation to provide product conformity assessment against Technical Regulations of the Belarus-Kazakhstan-Russia Customs Union.
The relevant certificate of accreditation № РОСС RU.0001.11АИ01 has been issued on 16 October 2014. The new certificate is termless due to the new rules enacted by the Federal Law “About Accreditation within the National Accreditation System” on 1 July 2014, while the certification body is obliged to regularly validate its competence.
The certificate of accreditation issued to SGS Vostok Limited proves the fact that this certification body complies with GOST R ISO/IEC 17065-2012.
According to the new certificate the accreditation scope of SGS Vostok Limited includes product conformity assessment against the following Technical Regulations of the Customs Union (CU TR):
- CU TR 010/2011 “On safety of machines and equipment”
- CU TR 032/2013 “On safety of high pressure equipment”
- CU TR 004/2011 “On safety of low voltage equipment”
- CU TR 020/2011 “Electromagnetic compatibility of technical devices"
- CU TR 021/2011 “On safety of food products”
- CU TR 022/2011 “Food products with regard to their marking”
As a result, the accreditation scope of SGS Vostok Limited has been complemented by another Technical Regulation of the Customs Union - CU TR 032/2013 “On safety of high pressure equipment”. Such a wide accreditation scope enables SGS Vostok Limited to conduct certification of complex equipment and production lines, which fall under several Technical Regulations of the Customs Union simultaneously.
It is worth reminding that SGS has been providing product certification services against Russian Federation requirements starting from 1993 when the company was first accredited as a product certification body within GOST R system. As soon as the Customs Union was established, SGS Vostok Limited, the Russian subsidiary of the SGS Group, started product conformity assessment within the Customs Union's technical regulation systems.
