How long does it take to get a certificate?

Manufacturers, who are new to the certification process, can hardly calculate the exact time for issuing a certificate of conformity, as this requires taking into account many nuances unknown to an outsider.

First, the time of certificate issuance depends on the type of the product. The name of the product determines the number of tested characteristics as well as each test duration.

Next, an important factor affecting the time of certification is the type of the issued document, which depends on the intended use of the product. For example, GOST-P Certificate of Conformity is valid only in the Russian Federation and often issued upon the verification of irrelevant engineering estimates, while the EAU certificate complies with the technical regulations of the Customs Union, which makes the certified products competitive in a foreign market.

In order to determine how long the certification will take, it is necessary to assume what difficulties may arise at each stage of certification. On receiving the application for certification from the manufacturer, the certification body makes a decision on the certification scheme and on the need to conduct an inspection.

The period for issuing a certificate of conformity largely depends on the length of laboratory quality control test, which requires careful sampling, adherence to test procedures and competent assessment of results. It also takes some time to collect, systematize and analyze the final data, based on which the decision whether to issue a certificate or not is made.

Summing up all the above, it should be concluded that only professionals can determine exactly how long it will take to issue a certificate of conformity. Certification bodies can both determine the scheme and terms of certification and decide on the feasibility of confirming the product quality.
