We should explain for you there is no direct recognition of any other overseas certificates, declarations, test reports and factory inspections for FAC/telecom approvals. But our partner labs can reissue CB/CE reports in accordance with FAC requirements without re-testing if they find all necessary technical information in your test reports and documentations. Our company also provides local declaration representative services for overseas manufacturers who doesn’t have a local representative company in Russia.

Family and similar models
  • Only single model should be specified on FAC (telecom) DoC — no series, no family, no similar models in FAC declaration
  • There can be several similar models, series or family specified in FAC (telecom) CoC
Responsibility
  • No administrative responsibility for violation yet for manufacturers and their representatives but the changes are in a process
  • Sellers, operators and end-users are solely responsible for compliance with FAC requirements
Applicant

A declarant of the declaration procedure should be a local Russian company only. Date and # of contract between the declarant (representative company) and manufacturer should be specified on every DoC obligatory.

Modular approval

Manufacturer can approve a telecom built-in module or an end-user device, it doesn’t matter. It depends on manufacturer’s choice only. But to approve an end-user device would be better way because in accordance with «Telecom law» the end-user device should be approved anyway. Additionally there is easier way to approve several similar models that have the same telecom or radio module.
