The changes carried out by the state in recent years in the field of control over the conformity assessment of products manufactured in Russia have created many obstacles for participants in foreign economic activity. The innovations have entailed a significant increase in the cost of certification services, which may exceed the cost of the foreign economic operation itself. In this regard, attention should be paid to the practice of import using declarations and certificates of conformity issued for other legal entities.

In accordance with the current legislation, one of the conditions for the import into the Russian Federation of products subject to mandatory confirmation of conformity is the submission of a declaration of conformity or a certificate of conformity or information about them to the customs authorities.

At the same time, according to the position of the customs authorities, the organization acting as the applicant in the declaration / certificate of conformity can authorize any other person to submit documents of conformity or information about them to the customs authorities. In the absence of any specific requirements of the law, in practice, a power of attorney in a simple written form is provided to the customs authorities as a permit to use a certificate or declaration of conformity issued for another legal entity.

At the same time, it should be borne in mind that the customs authorities are currently checking not only the permit document itself, but also draws attention to the observance of the procedure for its registration. That is why a foreign economic activity participant must also have documentation confirming the fact of importing product samples, testing it, as well as contractual relations with certification bodies and testing laboratories.
