Certification Procedure

According to the approved model (scheme) the products certification procedure covers:

  • submission of application for products certification and concluding of license agreement (download the application, the license agreement). If required by certification scheme and kind of product, applicant also should attach the normative documents, technical or operational descriptions, copies of certificates and certification testing reports for products and components, obtained earlier in Ukrainian, Russian or European certification bodies, evidence on product's origin, shipping documentation, information about the manufacturer, conclusions of the applicable controlling organisations, for example, Ukrainian Ministry of Public Health, etc.;
  • Review of the application, analysis of the submitted documents and making decision on the application; Sampling and identification of production samples for tests;
  • Testing of samples;
  • According to chosen certification model (scheme) factory examination or attestation, evaluation of the manufacturer's quality management;
  • Analysis of the obtained results, making decision on possibility of issue of conformity certificate; Issuing of conformity certificate and applying the certified product to the Register of UkrSEPRO System;
  • Acceptance of conformity certificate issued by foreign certification body; Technical surveillance of certified product during its manufacturing and certificate validity period.

The application for product certification in CB "TECKO" can be submitted by any organization of any form of ownership or any physical person.

The applicant on certification of serially manufactured products can be only the manufacturer of products as a legal entity, acting on its own behalf or through the intermediate. Thus the intermediate should present the letter of attorney indicating the particular kinds of activities, which are delegated to him by the manufacturer, and also declaration of the manufacturer about assumption of the same obligations, as applicant (download the letter of attorney).


There are six schemes (models) of certification in the UkrSEPRO System. The choice of the scheme depends on the manufacturer possibilities and wishes.
The certification schemes for product lots (or a single product) and certification of serial production in the UkrSEPRO System differ.
When applicant requests the certification of a lot of products (or a single product), which is iported to the Ukraine by the specific invoice, the certificate is issued only for the certain products indicated in the invoice. In this case certificate contains the information regarding the lot dimensions, certified products factory numbers, invoices numbers, CUSTOMS CODE, name and address of the Applicant and the products manufacturer (if available). Issued certificate usually is valid for 6 months; or maximum up to a year.
It is possible to use different certification models (schemes) for certification of serial production in the UkrSEPRO System.
The period of validity for the serial production certificate depends on the selected model (scheme):
Let's examine products certification models (schemes or variants) for serial production used in the UkrSEPRO System in more detail.
Products certification model (scheme) without production area inspection. Certificate of conformity is issued for one year term.
It is possible to apply the certification scheme (model) called "with analysis of documentation - without production area inspection" to serial production certification in the UkrSEPRO System. However, the use of this model is currently limited. This scheme is applicable only once per applicant or per product. The Register the UkrSEPRO System controls the satisfaction of this constraint during the certificate registration. The scheme "with analysis of documentation" is designed for certification of products which are just launched out on manufacture, or for which the Ukrainian market is studied or developed. The production area inspection (production area visit by the certification body commission) is not carried out. This scheme requires an additional amount of technical documentation to be submitted to the certification body.
If this scheme is used the term of product certificate is up to one year. It is issued on the basis of positive results of analysis of documentation submitted by an Applicant and positive results of certification tests of product samples which are collected on the storehouse of the manufacturer's official representative or at the manufacturer's factory.
The further technical supervision within the validity period of conformity certificate includes periodic control tests of product samples at manufacturers' or suppliers' site in the order, terms and amounts approved by the certification body in the technical supervision program. If this model is applied, the production control is not carried out. However we remind that this model is applicable only once.
Certification model (scheme) of serial production with production area inspection by the certification body (CB) Commission.
Under serial production certification the procedure is carried out with manufacture area inspection by the CB commission. The commission carries out factory inspection or attestation, or certification (assessment) of the manufacturer's quality management system.
Production certification model (scheme) with production area inspection. Certificate of conformity is issued for up to two years term.
Purpose: to determine the compliance of factual state of manufacturing to the documented requirements, to confirm that factory capacities allow manufacturing of products in accordance with current Ukrainian normative documents.
Production area is inspected in accordance with the procedure approved in the Public Standard DSTU 3957-2000.
Inspection results are documented in the form of an inspection act. Inspection of production area provides for quantitative rating of production stability and defines the procedure of technical supervision of manufacture. Before production area inspection the manufacturer should submit to the CB a filled Questionnaire "Preliminary inspection (review) of manufacturing of certification requested products" (download Questionnaire). This Questionnaire is prepared by manufacturer in addition to the general list of documents submitted to the CB.
Production area inspection procedure. During production area inspection the expertise of normative, technical and processing documentation is carried out. The following has been performed: familiarization of the factory structural scheme; compliance checking of product parameters and characteristics defined by technical documentation with requirements of normative documents, which are actual in Ukraine; assessment of sufficiency of control operations and tests; assessment of input control system; checking of availability and efficiency of the metrological support system.
Usually during the production area inspection the CB commission carry out sampling and samples identification for certification testing. The CB determines the required amount of samples and sampling procedure. In case of large dimension of samples the tests can be carried out at the manufacturer's laboratory by personnel from testing laboratory accredited in Ukraine in accordance with established procedure.
On positive results of production area inspection the experts prepare an act. The act along with positive reports of certification tests forms the basis for issuance of certificate up to two-year term.
The further technical supervision within the certificate's period of conformity includes production inspection and control tests of product samples at manufacturers' or suppliers' site in the order, terms and amounts approved by the CB in the technical supervision program.
Production certification model (scheme) with attestation of manufacture of certified products. Certificate of conformity is issued for up to three years term.
Purpose of the production attestation: assessment of the manufacturer's technical capacities to ensure stable release of the products with parameters which comply to the requirements of normative documents.
Production attestation is carried out by the CB in accordance with the procedure defined in the Public Standard DSTU 3414-96.
Attestation results are documented in the form of manufacture certificate given to the Applicant. Production attestation covers a quantitative assessment of product parameters stability. It also defines the procedure of manufacture technical supervision and attestation of used technology.
Usually during the production area inspection the CB commission carries out sampling and samples identification for certification testing. The CB determines the required amount of samples and sampling procedure. In case of large dimension of samples the tests can be carried out at the manufacturer's laboratory by personnel from testing laboratory accredited in Ukraine in accordance with established procedure.
On positive results of manufacture attestation the Applicant is issued a manufacture certificate. The certificate along with positive reports of certification tests serves the basis for issuance of product certificate up to three-year term.
The further technical supervision within the certificate's period of conformity includes production inspection and control tests of product samples at manufacturers' or suppliers' site in the order, terms and amounts approved by the CB in the technical supervision program.
Production attestation in the UkrSEPRO System for foreign manufacturers is not recommended and rarely carried out because the quality management system (ISO 9001) is required in this case. But then it is much simpler to carry out certification in the UkrSEPRO System according to the scheme with certification of quality management system. This model is described below.
Production certification model (scheme) with certification (assessment) of production quality management system. Certificate of conformity is issued for up to five years term.
The applicant should choose in the application the model (scheme) with certification (assesment) of manufacturer quality management system, conclude the license agreement and fill in questionnaire of preliminary assesment (download the application, license agreement, questionnaire).
The procedure of certification (assessment) of manufacturer quality management system is following:
the preliminary assesment of the quality management system; the final assessment (on the place of production) of the quality management system; examination of inspection documents, registration and issuing of conformity certificate for quality management system; technical surveillance.
Purpose of certification (assessment) of quality management system: to conform that the quality system meets the Public Standard of Ukraine ISO 9001 (ISO 9001) requirements and to ensure that the manufactured products are comply to normative documents; and all technical, administrative and human factors affecting quality are under control; non-compliant products are timely detected, and the factory takes continuous measures to prevent manufacture of such products. It is necessary to make sure that the factory takes care on satisfaction of customer's requirements, production development and improvement.
Certification (assessment) of quality management systems is carried out by bodies accredited in the UkrSEPRO System as Quality Management System Certification Body (QMSCB) to perform QMS certification. The certification procedure is defined by the Public Standard DSTU 3419-96.
