Make sure your products can cross the Russian border

We have regular cases of companies getting orders from Russia, sending products and receiving the shipments back after a while. Causes can be manifold but most of the time, this can be avoided with proper certification, product documentation and local support.

  • Does your product need a certification to be exported to Russia? What about import/export licenses?
  • How much does it cost? How long does it take?
  • What are the import taxes and what is going to be your final price in Russia?

Avoid bad surprises by getting your facts straight and complying with minimal requirements.

The Product Analysis includes:

  • Legal inputs: analysis of the certification, licenses and norms required to export your product to Russia, incl. approximative price and time to get them
  • Cost simulation: cost simulation including Russian taxes, logistics to know import cost per unit and final price in Russia
  • Recommendations: as to other requirements, certification agencies, custom specialists and logistics providers

Our deliverables always include an executive summary for the board and a digest content structure for a quick navigation in the document. Customers receive the study in electronic format and a live presentation with the main findings can be arranged for the management.

"SCE Experts would like to thank the Swiss Samara Center for its Industrial Report on Russian Aerospace Industry. Prior to reading the market research, we had little insight on the Russian Aerospace market. After reading this very thorough report, I was enlightened with the high added-value information shared within. The quality of the structure and content of this study encouraged us to join the cohort traveling to Russia for the fact-finding mission in 2019. SCE Experts is now well informed and positioned in the Aeronautics sector to consider joint ventures and partnerships with the Russian Aerospace Industry. Once again, thank you for this excellent report".
