RFC Statement other name Radio Frequency conclusion (done by Government Radio Frequency Center) is a document required for import of radio electronic, high-frequency devices (HFD) and their components to the Russian Federation. The statement confirms that the product compliance with the specifications and operating conditions, approved by the State Commission for Radio Frequencies (SCRF) or so call it GKRCH
RFC Statement is required for registration of the license of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (Minpromtorg License) full list of restricted products you can find here - annex № 1 to the decision №30 ECE College of 21.4.2015. section 2.16 . RFC (Radio Frequency Centre) conclusions which are mandatory for obtaining import licenses for radio devices such as RFID (866-868 MHz), SRD radio products, automotive radars (76-77 GHz), DECT devices (1880-1900 MHz) ,antennas, Microphones or other radio equipment which fells into the restricted list . Radio Frequency Center statement is issued in favor of a specific importer, and contains information about the name and model of the products plus trade mark if available ,after receiving Radio frequency Centre approval ,you product adds into the Roskomnadzor data base and stays there for 10 year ( no need for additional test )
In accordance with the Radio Frequency Center regulations, to obtain a Statement with a permit to import a certain type of products it is required to provide a specific list of information about the radio frequency characteristics of the product (especially if the imported goods are not included in the REM and HFD list approved by SCRF). In particular, it may be required to provide information such as the class of emission, the peak frequency deviation, the relative level of spurious emission, the spectral density and so on.
Obtaining the RFC conclusion is no longer a simple paperwork process: only test reports issued by Russia’s RFC will now be accepted and in-country testing is therefore required, since GKRCH reports issued by an accredited lab are no longer tolerated
So to import to Russia satellite stations, radio relay equipment, some types of SRD and RFID’s equipment, specific radio products , it is necessary to conduct a local Laboratory test
Roskomnadzor is authorised to keep the register of radio electronic means (REM) and high-frequency devices (HFD), admitted for import to the territory of the Russian Federation.
