The Certificate of the Customs Union (CU certification) - is an official document confirming the quality of production to approved standards within the territory of the Customs Union. The Customs Union consists of three countries: Belarus, Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation. These countries have agreed on the sole basis of technical and regulatory rules.
The Certificate of the Customs Union (CU certification) is necessarily required for entry into the market of the Customs Union by the customs of each Member State. The aim was to appeal technical obstacles, such as the compulsory certification trade between three countries and to reduce the number of mandatory technical procedures for the importation of goods into and export of goods from the territory of the Customs Union.
The Certificate of the Customs Union can be used for export of goods to any country - Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. The certificate is also valid on the territory of each country. In this way, every company can export its goods to each country, on the basis of one certificate of conformity. Certificate replaces the Customs Union International certifications of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
