Russian Federation - Customs Requirements for Import Shipments.
In order to fulfil Russian customs control measures, it is of utmost importance of include the indication of trademarks, manufacturer name, and country of origin on invoices for shipments to Russia (especially for fashion and hi-tech industries) to exporting clients. Lack of this information in documents can affect clearance times by causing delays due to customs inspection of non-document shipments.
Please also be reminded, that only documents which were written/printed on paper can be sent as "document shipment" (15D) to Russian Federation. Any other type of shipment including CD of documents, etc. are regarded as non-document shipments.
All other non-document shipments that are not 'true documents' (i.e. actual written or printed papers) are revealed by customs and considered to be a violation of RU Customs legislation, which can result in delays and fines.
Please ensure that oinly true document shipments are shipped as documents to Russia.
