Is national R&TTE approval in Serbia essential or not?
The Decision determining import, export or transit products in Serbia that came into force in the late 2017 identifies product categories that are subject to certain conformity assessment documents.
In the Annex 6 of this Decision there is a list of HS codes for certain Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) that require Serbian R&TTE Certificate of Conformity (RS R&TTE CoC) for import and customs clearance.
The list has slightly changed in comparison to the previous one.
Some HS codes of the products for which over 35% of all the R&TTE certificates have been issued during the past year were excluded from this list.
This means that products that are out of this list do not require Serbian R&TTE Certificate of Conformity (RS R&TTE CoC) for import. This was made to speed up the process of products customs clearance.
Nevertheless, all radio products still require conformity assessment via RS R&TTE CoC for placing them on the market of Serbia, even though the RS R&TTE CoC is not required for the customs clearance procedure.
