The Ministry of Communications proposes to simplify the issuance of compliance reports for imported smartphones, tablets and laptops, which should make the procedure cheaper and faster, and improve the situation with the appearance of new products in our country.
As Kommersant writes referring to the draft order of the Ministry of Communications, the department wants to check the consumer electronics not only at the Radio Center under Roskomnadzor, but also in testing laboratories (their number exceeds 20) and certification bodies (more than five) .
According to Anton Gusko, representative of the Association of Trade Companies and Producers of Electrical and Computer Equipment (RATEK), due to participation in the issuance of conclusions on the import of electronics of only one structure, this procedure is expensive and takes a long time. Attraction of accredited laboratories will simplify and reduce the cost of the process, he is sure. Other market participants interviewed by the publication agree with this.
Guskov clarified that his organization is in favor of abolishing the instrumental check and replacing it with a documentary one, since the tests take up to 40 days and the cost of verification is 30-70 thousand rubles.
"At the same time, they are mandatory for all modifications of the device, even in the case of minor differences, for example, the colors of the case," the representative of RATEK explained.
