Importance of certification. The whole world highlights the importance of certification. In West the big authority has ISO 9000 certificate, confirming the quality of the process of the products. In Ukraine its own certification system was developed which has not less authority. Certificate of UkrSepro is absolutely independent document, proving conformity of the products to all requirements of standard norms of Ukraine. That is why if you have a certificate of conformity of your country, anyway you have to obtain the certificate UkrSepro, because some criteria of quality definition in Ukraine and other countries may be different.

Certification in Ukraine. During importation to Ukraine certification plays very important role. It is necessary for the customs control. In case of you lack certificate, the goods could stop the customs clearance until the moment of getting the required documents. If certification in Ukraine was done properly then UkrSepro certificate is issued which gives the right to make legal way to Ukraine and helps to sell the products.

What is UkrSepro? Certificate of conformity UkrSepro is a document developed in Ukraine which confirms the provided products correspond to all requirements and standards of Ukraine in the sphere of goods and services. For Ukraine certificate UkrSepro is an own standard of quality of products equal to certification of production level ISO 9000 for western countries, but being absolutely independent document. If certification ISO includes control of production system quality, then certification of UkrSepro is in charge of quality of final product.

For cooperation with partners from CIS countries there is a simplified system – acknowledgement of certification of conformity.

Ukraine signed bilateral partners agreement with CIS countries, due to which the certificates issued in those countries could be equivalent to UkrSepro certificate. On the basis of those certificates the "Acknowledgement of certificate of conformity", which has a legal power of UkrSepro certificate for customs clearance.
