COVID-19 impact on EAC Certification Projects

Reading time: 2 minutes

On 17th March Russian Rosaccreditation public service, which is governing the activities of all certification bodies and laboratories, issued an official message.

Considering the inability of Russian experts who work for Certification Bodies and laboratories to travel outside of Russia due to governmental restrictions related to COVID-19, there are restrictions regarding certification processes.

The strictest is related to serial certification of equipment: since experts can’t travel to international companies for Quality Management System audits, serial certification processes shall be stopped until borders are open again.

Other restrictions are related to procedure of selection of samples for testing, which, as well, can’t be done outside of Russia.


We are working together with reliable Certification Bodies at estimating the impact of these restrictions and reduce them, where possible.


We are online with Russian experts, who have the most up-to-date news and instructions, and we hope restrictions will be cancelled soon. In the meantime, we have activated remote inspection services to guarantee manufacturers business continuity.
