On October 18, 2010 the Russian Government issued the Decree No. 841 stipulating that declarations and certificates of conformity covering serial production of machines and (or) equipment and issued prior to the enforcement of the Technical Regulation on Machinery Safety remain valid for the period stated therein. According to the above-mentioned Governmental Decree, the Technical Regulation on Machinery Safety has been complemented with a relevant paragraph.
This amendment has been highly demanded by the industry. Without this clarification many producers of machinery who had obtained the declaration or certificate of conformity within the GOST R system before September 25, 2010 would only have been able to continue operations in Russia by undergoing the conformity verification procedure once again.
However, the amendment introduced to the Technical Regulation on Machinery Safety makes those declarations and certificates of conformity valid even if the equipment in question has not been put into operation yet.
