This set of documents can be issued on the voluntary and obligatory basis.
The thing is that as Safety Expert Conclusion and Certificate of industrial Safety are not actually issuing by RTN itself. These documents are in the competence of accredited certification authorities controlled by RTN. These authorities are specialized in the certain kind of hazardous risk class of production facility and certain equipment. So, in the case of Obligatory RTN Approval, you need to register the issued by certification authority documents in the RTN register.
Even though these documents issued by the RosTechNadzor are not applicable for the customs clearance, each of these documents can be required by the Federal Inspection authorities in order to confirm that the equipment is safe to use and constitutes no threat of emergency situations.
In this case, the RTN Exemption letter can be effective. This document is an official Letter from RTN which confirm that there is no need in Obligatory RNT approval. It can be issued as an additional document to the Voluntary RTN approval and also can be used instead of it.
It usually takes from 1 to 2 months to issue an Industrial Safety Expert Conclusion, 30 days for a Certificate of Industrial Safety and one week for Exemption Letter.
