Uzbekistan: Simplified procedure for conformity assessment

Asof19 July 2017, importers and manufacturers of products subject to compulsory certification, are able to use a foreign declaration of conformity in order to fulfill the compulsory certification requirement. The amendment to the procedure of compulsory product certification provides the possibility of a foreign conformity declaration being acknowledged by the Uzbekistan authorities.

Previously, conformity assessment of products was only allowed by way of issuing a declaration of conformity and for certain products types, only by:

Notification by the manufacturer (for domestically produced goods); and

By way of acknowledging conformity certificates issued by accredited foreign certification bodies (for imported products only).

Law: Decree No. 475 of 7 July 2017 on Amending the List of Imported and Domestic Products Subject to Compulsory Certification
