Cerificado de Metrología Gost R

The GOST R Metrology Certificate (Метрологический Сертификат) certifies the correct functioning and operation of measuring or weighing equipment, based on the standards set out by Rosstandart (the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology). Depending on the source consulted, and the translation chosen, the certificate may be referred to in the following ways:

Metrological Certificate
Certificate of Measuring Instruments
GOST R Approval Standard for Legal Metrology

As with the other GOST R Certificates, their issue can be combined with that of an EAC or GOST Certificate. In the specific field of metrology, reference must be made to national, and not community, regulations.

The cases which may require a GOST R Certificate of Metrology are particularly broad:

  • Medicine and Veterinary
  • Environmental protection
  • Emergency management activities
  • Accident prevention and safety at work
  • Industrial facilities classified as hazardous
  • Trade and exchange of goods
  • Packaging and weighing of goods
  • Public administration
  • Postal and courier services
  • Water, electricity, and gas supplies
  • National security and defence
  • Geodesy and cartography
  • Hydrometeorological services
  • Banking, tax, and customs services
  • Processes to assess the conformity of industrial products with Russian legislation
  • Sports competitions and the preparation of elite sportspeople
  • Execution of orders from courts and state bodies with executive powers.

The procedure for obtaining the Метрологический Сертификат is particularly complex, as it involves going through Rosstandart on a mandatory basis.

The certificate, once obtained, specifies the instrument’s approval number and registration number in the National Register of Measuring Equipment and is accompanied by an annex that specifies the field of application, essential technical and metric characteristics, the margin of error, the calibration interval, and the reference numbers of the legal documents that have been used to perform the tests.

The certificate is valid for 5 years, but you also apply for a single contract. If the most common format – the 5-year validity – is chosen, then it allows the certified instrument to be exported without any limits on quantity.

Two things to bear in mind regarding the GOST R Metrology Certificate

As we have already pointed out, the Metrology Certificate refers solely and exclusively to national legislation, in this case Russian legislation. This means that any certificates from other countries are not valid, whether they are members of the International Organisation of Legal Metrology (on whose recommendations the Russian regulations are based), or even members of COOMET, the Eurasian organisation for cooperation between national metrological institutions, in which Russia plays a very important role.

However, having said all this, we would suggest that, before you initiate such a complex certification procedure, you consult the Rosstandart Approved Measuring Equipment Register. The instrument may have been registered before (maybe by another distributor) and would therefore be easier to export to Russia.
