The process of the declaration issuance is relatively simple: The declarant declares that the product complies with the requirements; the certification body verifies and registers the declaration. Data on the registered declaration is placed in the Unified Certification Register. The declaration bears the seal of the declarant and information about the manufacturer.
The process of obtaining a certificate provides, in general, the tests and possibly the production audit (1-2 experts become acquainted with the organization of production and quality management system). After this, the certification authority prints the certificate and assures it with the seal.
