Type approval in Russia synapse.

All products WiFi, Satellite (unless a private network), BT, cellular, PSTN, Lithium Ion batteries, etc. require some kind of approval.This could be a Technical Regulation (TR) Custom Union LVE, EMC, MD, etc. or Telecom Certificate, Telecom Declaration.
Many telecom approvals are voluntary but it is highly recommended that you apply for these anyway.  If equipment is not approved, it means:

  • Telecom providers cannot get telecom license for commercial activity

  • End users cannot get technical support if they use non-approved equipment

  • Every distributor and retail sales office prefers to sale telecom equipment or goods approved by FAC.

Technical Regulation (TRs) are obligatory.

Foreign certificates and test reports cannot be accepted in Russian telecom system legally. No harmonized telecom standards exist in Russia. When we ask for your test reports it means that our engineers and experts from our certification body or officials from telecom agency study your test reports and if the test report includes completed technical information, our relevant accredited laboratory can reissue test report without retesting in Russian language and only Russian test report from accredited lab can be the basis for following certification and declaration procedure in telecom system.

In addition to the type approval or FAC issued by Russia your product may also require a Custom Union Declaration or Certificate.
CSIA can assist with that certification process as well.

As stated above on this page a local representative service or local declarant is required.
CSIA can provide all of these services.
