On New Accreditation Mark Image

October 03, 2019

Upon entering into force of the Order of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development No. 89 of February 27, 2019, RusAccreditation informs about the introduction of a new image of the national accreditation system’s mark used by accredited CABs starting September 7, 2019, as the accreditation mark.

The previous image of the national accreditation system’s mark can be used by accredited CABs until December 31, 2019.

All versions of the accreditation mark by the type of accredited CAB are available for download.

The accreditation mark can be used by an accredited CAB if their accreditation is not suspended or terminated. An accredited CAB can use the accreditation mark image only with their own logo.

The use of the image of the accreditation mark on conformity assessment certificates issued as part of the voluntary certification is allowed only if the certification body is accredited and if there is an agreement with the persons who created the system of voluntary certification.

Shall the accreditation of a CAB be suspended, the accredited CAB must cease their use of the image and delete it from their website.

 

Any infringement of the rules for the use of the mark incurs liability under the Russian legislation.

The Order of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development No. 89 of February 27, 2019, also established a combined accreditation mark that can be used by accredited CABs having RusAccreditation’s permission.
