Fire Safety Certificate

Fire safety certificate is a document which confirms the products meet the fire safety requirements. Fire safety certificate can be issued to the manufacturer or importer of the goods. In Russia, a fire safety certificate is issued against the log sheet of product samples test. The requirements to the products and tests vary for various products. Their descriptions can be found in GOST and technical specifications to the products. The list of goods subject to mandatory fire safety certification is specified in article 146 of Federal Law No.123 of 22.07.2008. If the product does not require mandatory certification, but the manufacturer wants to run the fire test operations, they can voluntarily submit for fire safety certificate. A voluntary certificate is often received for participation in tenders as advantage over the competitors. Procedure for issuing a fire safety certificate
