EAC Certifications for Russia and EEU States

EAC Certification is required for various product groups included in the Unified Register of products subject to certification or declaration within the EEU States in accordance with the decision of the EEU Commission N620.

For product groups that are not listed in this register, national certification regulations may apply when exporting to Russia and EEU States. The EEU is an international association responsible for regional, cultural and economic development and integration among individual EEU States. The goal of the Eurasian Economic Union is to strengthen competitiveness and economic integration among the individual Member States of the Eurasian Economic Area.

Current member states of the Eurasian Economic Union:

  • Russian Federation
  • Republic of Kazakhstan
  • Republic of Armenia
  • Republic of Kyrgyzstan
  • Republic of Belarus

Classification of Goods

Customs clearance processes need to be efficient. Thus, when clearing large investment projects in Russia and the EEU states, it makes sense to apply for a classification. The classification is a simplification scheme for large shipments. By classifying groups of goods, the individual components of the delivery are combined and customs clearance is applied accordingly as one delivery. Without applying for the benefits of classification, all components of the delivery will be cleared separately in customs.

Block Customs Clearance of Goods

For large investment projects, which are delivered within a short time, there is a possibility to organize the complete delivery as a block customs clearance. This makes customs clearance much faster and easier, individual inventory parts of the delivery are declared and cleared together as one asset.

Electronic Customs Clearance of Goods

Electronic customs clearance has several advantages and is more efficient and reliable than conventional customs clearance of goods in Russia and EEU States. When submitting customs declarations in the electronic form, the presence of the applicant is not required, all necessary documents and records are submitted in electronic form.

Import VAT in Russia and EEU States

Various fees and taxes are levied when importing products into Russia and EEU Member States. In addition to customs duty, import sales tax is also levied on imported products. The calculation of import VAT is carried out in Russia and EEU States on the basis of customs value of imported goods. Furthermore, there is a possibility to be represented by our Russian branch in Moscow and Novosibirsk for tax and contractual purposes. This can optimize several bureaucratic administrative processes.
