Federal Service for Accreditation confirms that there were about 1000 accredited certification bodies in Russia, as of August 2016. Of course, there are all certification bodies for all current regulations of Customs Union, and there are already 35 technical regulations since May,2016. In comparison with European Union, there are less amount of such organizations, especially significant ones, which everyone know and trust both producers and consumers.
Therefore, when it comes to the ordinary client of certification body (importer, manufacturer or its official representative) that it is necessary to certify their products or register a declaration, to choose that certification body that will satisfy the customers wishes, for economic and time indicators, and at the same time to work ''in the framework of the law'' is rather difficult.
Of course, there are common signs that will mark the ''false'' certificates:
• terms of certificate issues up to 3 days;
• a very low price (Why the price should be high, if you just need to print an information at the form?)
• there are no number of certification body accreditation certificate (all necessary actions are organized by intermediaries and they not bear responsibility at all, etc.)
