Following arrival in the Republic of North Macedonia on 8 January 2020, the remaining three CRRC-built Class 443 electric locomotives (443-001, 003, 004) were tested until the end of that month. After receiving the acceptance certificate issued by the competent authority responsible for railway safety in the country Uprava za Sigurnost vo Zeleznickiot Sistem (Department for Safety in the Railway System, belonging to the Ministry of transport and communications), ŽRSM started regular service with them on 4 February 2020.

On our question, for what reason a two-year delay in the delivery of locomotives occurred, ŽRSM answered us that „there was no specific reason, just late delivery by the Chinese manufacturer“.
