Achieving EAC Certification

Press release from: SGS

/ PR Agency: Sugarloaf Marketing
Exporters of electrical and electronic products to member-states of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) must meet new technical regulations (TR) known as either TR CU, or TR EAC. SGS is helping organizations to achieve EAC Certification.

The Customs Union (CU) of the EAEU (which includes Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan) was formed in 2010. It is now harmonizing existing national standards (GOST-R, TR Russian Federation, ST-B (BLR) and GOST-K) for product certification and replacing them with TR CU, or TR EAC.

Products certified in accordance with CU-TRs can be freely traded within CU territory and EAC certification is mandatory in all EAEU countries. Almost all types of electric and electronics products are covered by the Eurasian Union regulations, including:
• LVE: Safety of Low Voltage Equipment (TR 004/2011)
• EMC: Electromagnetic Compatibility of Technical Product (TR 020/2011)
• Safety of Machines and Equipment (TR 010/2011)
• Safety of Equipment For Use In Explosive Environments (TR CU 012/2011)
• Safety of Elevators (TR CU 011/2011)

The EAC Mark
There are two ways to navigate the EAC Marking Process, depending on the type of product:

For Batch Certification and Declaration:
1. Product testing
2. Certification

For Series Production Certification:
1. Product testing
2. Factory inspection
3. Certification
4. Surveillance inspection

The EAC mark (at a height of no less than 5 mm) should be affixed to the product and packaging. The Customs Union awards two certification types:
• Certificate of Conformity (CoC): for local/overseas companies, as determined by CU-TRs
• Declaration of Compliance (DoC): for local companies

According to EAEU Commission Decision No. 154 (dated November 15, 2016), the Applicant for the CoC/DoC can only be a legal entity registered in the territory of the Customs Union (EAEU) – a local manufacturer, retailer or an authorized Local Representative.

EAC certificates are valid per batch, or for a period of up to five years. An initial factory inspection is required before certification for CoC (serial production), and a surveillance inspection is required to maintain its validity.

SGS – Helping To Achieve EAC Certification
The experience of SGS in the Customs Union markets means that the company can provide a complete service package covering all relevant EAEU certification requirements for various product categories.

Due to the company’s resources, expertise, accredited certification body status and accredited testing facilities, it is able to support achieving compliance with EAEU technical regulations and gaining access to the EAEU market.

After finding the common elements between international and CU standards, SGS will design an effective regulatory compliance strategy for a manufacturer’s or exporter’s electrical and electronic products.
