We are planing to develop a sensor-product for Sub 1-GHz with CC1101, freq = 868MHz. I saw that for Sub 1-GHz it is very complicated to sell products world wide due to different allowed frequencys and different national standards. Well, the main market is Europa + Russia. For Europa we can do a self-declaration. But Russia??? I found that products for russian market need GOST-R approval. Does everyone knows what the GOST-R approval will roughly cost (10k$, 20k$0 30k$??)? I need this for project calculation?
If the output power doesn't exceed 25 mW, 868 MHz is free in Russia. What GOST do you mean?
Thanks for your answer. We got the information from a distributor that we need an approval of our wireless products for russian market. I think this is GOST-R approval.
On the UL-webside I got follow information:
"GOST-R Russian ApprovalGOST-R certification is required in order to gain customs clearance for products at the Russian borders. The GOST-R certificate indicates compliance with the Russian standards. If the products are deemed for use in hazardous locations, then additionally a permit for use (RTN) is required and is issued by the Rostekhnadzor (Russian Ministry). IECEx CoCs and ExTRs can be used to obtain GOST-R certificates without additional testing. In 2011, there will be a MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) where the GOST-R certification will be accepted in Kazakhstan (GOST-K), Belarus (GOST-B), and Tajikistan (GOST-T)."
