3. Product sampling for testing
Depending on the chosen certification or declaration scheme, the manufacturer should provide product samples for testing in an accredited laboratory on the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union. Sampling is conducted in accordance with the requirements of the current interstate standard GOST 31814 “Conformity assessment. General rules of sampling for product testing upon confirmation of conformity” and certain Technical Regulations of the EAEU.
WR Group’s specialists will organize sampling for testing and monitor compliance with the requirements of the procedure, including sealed packaging, samples shipment and formalization of relevant acts.
4. Samples importation and testing in an accredited laboratory
Samples testing as a part of the EAC certification procedure must be carried out strictly in an accredited testing laboratory in any of the EAEU countries. The samples, as well as any other cargo crossing the borders of Russia or other EAEU countries, should undergo a customs clearance procedure. The availability of a cargo customs declaration is a prerequisite for the subsequent issuance of an EAC certificate by an accredited certification body.
WR Group will quickly and reliably deliver samples to the accredited test laboratory. We will import samples for testing to the territory of the EAEU, including customs clearance and issuance of customs declaration.
5. Production audit
Conducting production audit is one of the conditions for issuing an EAC certificate for series-produced products. An accredited expert of the certification body visits the manufacturer of the declared products for production audit. The expert checks the availability of normative and technical documents operation and intended use of the equipment, competence of the personnel, marking of the equipment, the system of incoming, acceptance and periodic tests, the state of the measuring instruments. A plan of procedures as well as objects of inspection are drawn up for each production facility individually. The progress and results of the inspection, as well as the necessary corrective actions, are documented by the accredited auditor in the production analysis report. The certification body makes a decision on issuing an EAC certificate based on this act.
The procedure of the production audit is regulated by the national standard GOST R 54293 “Production audit upon conformity assessment”.
