Declaration of Conformity

The declaration of conformity is a document of the established form, which contains a certificate of conformity of manufactured or imported products to the requirements of technical regulations and related standards.

 

The declaration of conformity is drawn up by the manufacturer, his authorized person or the supplier of the products under his exclusive legal responsibility, subject to the positive results of the conformity assessment of the declared products carried out in accordance with the requirements of technical regulations applicable to these products.

The process of conformity assessment in LLC “TCC“ Yugtest ”practically does not differ from the certification process. However, the forms of declarations of conformity and certificates are different. The manufacturer or his authorized person or supplier can fill out, on the basis of the results of the conformity assessment, a declaration of conformity with the help of our consultants on the forms provided by us, and then register it with TCC Yugtest LLC, an authorized body for conformity assessment.

The nomenclature of products has been approved, according to which the conformity assessment body of JSC “Yugtest” LLC is authorized to carry out work to assess the conformity of products, processes and services to the requirements of the Technical Regulations. At the request of the customer, the declaration of conformity can be registered with the conformity assessment body.

The declaration of conformity contains information about the documents confirming the information indicated in it.

The declaration of conformity for a batch of goods usually contains a reference only to the test report and / or certificate of examination of the product sample. The declaration of conformity of the type of product may refer to a larger number of supporting documents (test report, certificate of examination, type verification certificates, certificates of conformity of products and management systems, reports on the results of type studies, etc.).

The declaration of conformity may also indicate documents or conditions that limit its validity. When drawing up a declaration of conformity for a batch of products, such restrictive documents may be a contract, specification to a contract, invoice, freight documents, etc.

The validity of the declaration of conformity, as a rule, is limited by the validity period of the documents indicated in it. For a batch of products - usually 1 year, for the type of product - 1, 2, 3, 5 years (depending on the scheme of certification of products) or indefinitely.
