Uzstandard is the main authority for Standardization and Certification. It set up several certification schemes that can be used if you are going to import products to Uzbekistan. 

UZ certificate of conformity for serial producing products can be issued on behalf of the manufacturer. So, any Local Representative from Uzbekistan is not required. It means that any of local agents from Uzbekistan (importer, distributor or another local agent) need to be involved in the process.
Sticking to the Law the process of certification for serial production must be accompanied by the production site audit that is aimed at reviewing the production facilities and conduct the tests of the equipment. Usually two experts from Uzbekistan certification authority visit the production site to make a production analysis report.
Samples for tests can be also sent to the UZ laboratory in case there are no opportunities to hold the tests on site.

UZ certificate of conformity for a batch (one consignment) can be issued only on behalf of the importer. It means that the local agent from Uzbekistan (importer, distributor or another local agent) must be involved in the process.  Please note that in most cases the importer is obliged to resolve all certification issues according to the trade contract because certification process requires his deep involvement in the process. Sticking to the Law the process of certification for a batch of products must be accompanied by the audit to the storage place in Uzbekistan for sampling (small products) or to the installation location (large equipment) that is aimed at conducting the tests of the equipment. Please note that the test at place can be made only after the equipment will be set up. 

Generally required documents:
