Russian RFC conclusion (RadioFrequency Compliance conclusion)
. The importation of goods into the territory of the Russian Federation is regulated by the national customs legislation of the Russian Federation and international legislation of the Customs Union of the Eurasian Economic Union. The national legislation of the Russian Federation provides admission onto the market of radio electronic equipment and high-frequency devices with the allowed characteristics. The legal import of such goods into the Russian Federation requires a RadioFrequency Compliance conclusion
- conclusion on compliance of the technical specifications of the imported goods to the technical characteristics and conditions of use approved by the decision of the State Commission for radio frequencies.
A RFC conclusion
is required for the import of radio electronic equipment and high-frequency devices, including those which are built in and those which form part of other goods. Among other civil goods under a conclusion on the technical characteristics necessary for import are various wireless communication and personal electronic equipment equipped with means of short-range communication. The RadioFrequency Compliance conclusion
is also obligatory when importing various wireless devices of automation and management.
The RFC conclusion
of goods containing radio electronic equipment or high-frequency devices in the Russian Federation is issued by the branches of the Radio-frequency centers (RFC) which are a part of Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications. RFC carries out the analysis of imported radio electronic goods, issues the conclusions on compliance of technical characteristics, and keeps the unified register of issued conclusions.
The RadioFrequency Compliance conclusion
for the import of goods is made out for a term of 1 year. Obtaining the RFC conclusion
for the import of goods is completed on the basis of the statement of the Russian legal entity (the importer).

The provisions of international agreements take precedence over the relevant Russian laws and regulations do not supersede national legislation in this area. Therefore, the RadioFrequency Compliance conclusion
is usually not the only necessary permit. According to international or national legislation, the Russian EAC certificate
, the Russian CCC certificate
, the Russian FSS notification
or a Russian EAC license
can be demanded in addition.
