Israel compliance: MoC, SII, MEPS. Get your products approved for sale in Israel with our services.

Most of the goods that are operated in the Israeli market must meet the relevant government requirements. Israel's technical regulation system is based on mandatory national standards that perform the function of technical regulations, as well as on the documents of the authorities performing the same function.


Israeli regulations and compliance requirements are established to reduce risks, improve the quality of life and ensure safety during use. They can however pose challenges to companies who are looking to explore new markets. WWBridge provides a full range of services and helps our customers to ensure products successfully meet Israeli standards.

WWBridge can help you with any or all of the following to achieve Israel compliance:

  • MoC
  • SII
  • MEPS

MoC 

The market approval of products with built-in wireless technologies for Israel depends on an MoC certification. This regulatory approval is issued by the Israeli Ministry of Communications (MoC). The MoC certification is based on the requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) for market approval in Europe. The MoC therefore also accepts test reports that have been created for a CE marking, so that local tests in an Israeli laboratory are not necessary. This reduces the effort for manufacturers who need to plan between ten and twelve weeks for an MoC certification. At the end of the certification process, however, a local representative from Israel has to be involved.
Following a successful product approval by the authority, the manufacturer is required to label its product for the Israeli market with the MoC approval label. 

Types of MoC Type Approvals:

  • MoC Radio Type Approval
  • MoC wireless type approval
  • MOC Telecom Type Approval

Important to note: MoC certificate will be issued only to Israeli Local Representative/importer.

Products requiring MoC Type Approval include:

  • radio transmitter, RFID equipment, contactless card readers, other products that incorporate some kind of RF transmitter.
  • radio terminal devices
  • mobile (GSM or CDMA) handsets, wireless LAN (WLAN) equipment such as Wi-Fi devices, Bluetooth devices, Zigbee devices, WiMAX devices, RFID equipment, contactless card readers, other products that incorporate some kind of RF transmitter. 
  • telecommunications equipment

SII

The Standards Institution of Israel - (SII) is Israel's official body for the preparation and publication of Israeli standards. SII is a non-Governmental Organization with a unique status spelled out by "The Standards Law of 1953". According to this law, the purpose of SII is to Prepare standards as well as to ensure the quality of products which are produced locally or imported. As of January 2018, SII has published 3,504 national standards, of which 653 are mandatory. At the same time, 78% of Israel's mandatory standards are harmonized with international (53%), regional (35% based on European CEN / CENELEC standards) or other foreign standards (12%, mainly US standards).

The conformity assessment of products that are subject to mandatory Israeli standards is linked to the risk assessment divides the products into 4 groups:

Group 1 – Products with the highest risk level. A condition for the release into circulation of goods of this group is the testing and type approval ("type certificate"), which is carried out by an accredited Israeli Laboratory Accreditation Agency (ISRAC) and an authorized testing laboratory by the Ministry of Economy and Industry.

Group 2 – Products with an average level of risk. The condition for the release into circulation of goods of this group is the presence of a "type certificate" and a "supplier's declaration" that the delivered goods meet the requirements of a mandatory (official) standard and that the goods correspond to the type (model) that has been tested and approved by the testing laboratory in the "type certificate".

Group 3 – Products whose risk level is considered low. A condition for the release into circulation of goods of this group is the submission of a declaration signed by the importer on the compliance of the goods with the requirements of the mandatory (official) standard.

Group 4 – Products intended for use only in industry, and not used in the consumer market. This group does not require an import conformity assessment. Compliance with the mandatory standards is checked during supervision at the operational stage.

F.A.Q.

Is the local representative company required for handling the EAC certification?
In accordance with the Customs Union legislation, a foreign manufacturer must have a Local representative company (an Applicant) on the territory of the Customs Union (CU) to issue the certificate/declaration. This means that an Applicant for you can be your customer, distributor or official representative company in CU. WorldWideBridge LLC will be mentioned on certificate/declaration as a local representative. 
What does Annual maintenance inspection assume?
Each serially producing product that requires Certificate of conformity is subjected to Annual Maintenance Inspection (or so-called Inspection control) in case of applying for more than 1-year certificate. It assumes that certification body which issued the CoC needs to confirm that the product is still produced at the same quality. It can be done through the re-testing or reviewing of Quality Management System documents. In some cases, the certification body can initiate a production site audits during AMI.
What does the cost of certification services depend on? Is there any price list?
The cost of certification services depends on the type of the required approval document and technical characteristics of the product itself that influences the scope of tests that are to be conducted. We have no price-list because used to work with a wide range of certification bodies, testing laboratories, and other specialized state institutions (Federal Security Service (FSS) licensing center, Radiofrequency center (RFC), Rostekhnadzor, Roszdravnadzor, etc.)And this means that the price can vary depending on product specification and certain certification body's pricing policy. If we are talking about the product specification, then the cost can be affected by the number of models, differences in applied models, the number of communication standards used (for radio products), the number of declared protective properties (for PPE), metrology characteristics ( for measuring devices) and so on. Each product is unique, each request must be carefully calculated to determine the type of document, the amount of testing, the most optimal certification scheme, the number of test reports, etc. Also, it is important to note that CU certification bodies have a certain accreditation (product range they can approve). So, in case of big projects that include different products for certification we should apply to several different authorities. Each of those has individual pricing policies due to their testing facilities. This fact can significantly affect the pricing and process. Our goal is to provide accurate consulting services in a specific case. Therefore, we are happy to evaluate the client's application, which contains the name and description of the product and the HS code (Customs code).
What is the EAC mark and when should it be applied?
EAC mark is an approval sign for products that are needed to be imported to the Customs Union (CU). This mark gives the opportunity to enter the markets of Russia, Belarus, Kazakstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, distribute products throughout the entire territory of these countries, and extend your audience to almost 200 millions of people. EAC mark can be obtained only after the certification procedure according to the Technical Regulations of the Customs union is finished. ЕАС abbreviation stands for “Eurasian Conformity”. The unified mark is applied to each unit of production, packaging or accompanying documentation. The image of the unified mark has to be one colour and contrast with the surface colour on which it is applied. The place of application of the unified mark on the product, packaging and documentation is established in technical regulations of the Customs union.
Can the production site audit be replaced by CIG report?
The production site audit can be required in case the product requires the Certificate of conformity to the Technical Regulation of the Customs union. A lot of our clients are interested whether the production audit can be replaced by CIG report that use to be issued by most European producers. Customs union approval procedure does not assume replacing of the audit by providing CIG report because the expert from certification authority is obliged to check the QMS personally according to our law.
How is determine whether the Declaration of conformity or Certificate of conformity is required?
The necessary form of the approval document depends on the product description and HS code (Customs code). In each technical regulations of the Customs union, there is the List which determines whether Certificate of conformity or Declaration of conformity is required for certain product according to its HS Code and application field. In some cases, technical parameters must be also taken into consideration (for pressure equipment, PPE products, etc.).
What is required to import the samples for tests?
The samples can be imported for test only after all the preparations. Firstly, we should prepare the application for the certification and confirm it with the client.  On the second stage, the client s preparing the invoice for samples delivery that is needed to be sent to us for the check.  When the samples arrived at the customs clearance office the receiver prepare all the necessary documents confirming the import purpose and pay all the required fees to the government.  Import fees depend on the announced product price according to the shipping invoice. Products that are valued less than 200 EUR are free from such fees.  The final stage assumes the registration of the cargo declaration that confirms that the samples passed the customs clearance and can be used on for certification.
How can the EAC approval documents be prolonged after the expiration date?
Customs union certification system does not assume the prolongation procedure. This means that the certification process must be repeated including tests, production site audit if required. After all the procedures are done you will receive a new approval document. 
Is there an open register where the issued EAC approval document can be checked?
Almost all approval documents are to be registered in the open registers. Here you can refer to some of them: the Registered EAC Certificates of Conformity ,  the Registered EAC Declarations of Conformity , the registered State Registration Certificates , FFS Notifications (encrypted means) register.  If you need additional information please apply to [email protected]
