The Document Declaration of Conformity UkrSEPRO was introduced in 2010 to regulate the procedure whereby the manufacturer or the person authorized by him, on his own responsibility formally certifies that the production comply with the standards and requirements established by law.
UKRSepro Declaration of conformity and certification are the forms for verification conformity of production or services with established quality standards. The only difference between the two documents is that the certificate of conformity refers to the national normative documents and regulations, and the declaration of conformity refers to the rules that have been developed or adapted by European standards.
The conformity procedure which is carried out by the declaration, is used to determine the conformity of products with the established requirements, in accordance with technical regulations.
