Russia is not a WTO member yet.

The following documents are required to import goods into Russia: freight declaration; certificate of origin; certificate of conformity; testing protocols; import licences.

Labelling
Labelling must be in Russian on its own, or together with another language. The information required on the label depends on the product but can often require the translation of technical information. It is important to add bar codes when applicable. Many imported products destined for sale or use in the Russian market must have a Certificate of Conformity issued by the Russian State Standards Committee (Gosstandart).

Free Trade Zones
There are no Free Trade Zones in Russia. But there are some free economic zones, free customs zones and free warehouses designed to encourage investment in specific areas. Customs duties do not apply in free customs zones and free warehouses. Free customs zones and free warehouses are located in customs areas (airports, seaports, railway and truck terminals).
