Importation of samples for EAC certification

To obtain an EAC document (certificate or declaration of conformity), a product sample should be sent to a certification body for examination. Along with the sample, the body shall also request documentary confirmation — usually, a customs declaration — that the product was legally imported to the EAEU.

Currently, the Federal Customs Service of Russia prohibits individuals from importing samples in their luggage, via post, online stores, etc.

Importers/exporters sadly acknowledge that ‘samples may not be imported in a suitcase’.
