Agricultural and forestry vehicles and trailers and their components may only be placed on the market of Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) if these meet the requirements of this and other Technical Regulations of the EAEU and the conformity of the products was confirmed by the EAC marking.
The EAC Certification is required only for new agricultural equipment. Used agricultural equipment is not subject to any conformity assessment.
For new agricultural equipment two technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union are crucial:
- TR CU 031/2012 On safety of agricultural or forestry operation vehicles and trailers
- TR CU 010/2011 On safety of machinery and equipment
These technical documents set the binding safety requirements applied to agricultural, forestry vehicles and trailers and their components with the aim to protect life, health, the environment and property. They also serve to prevent misleading actions with regard to their intended use and safety toward the consumer.
Agricultural equipment which is subject to TR CU 010/2011 is listed in the Supplement 3 to the technical regulation, for example small horticultural and forestry equipment, machines for livestock, poultry farming and feed production. These agricultural machines underly obligatory EAC Certification. For industrial tractors only the EAC Declaration is possible.
TR CU 031/2012 applies to wheeled agricultural and forestry tractors and their trailers, regardless of their country of origin, as well as their components. This technical document stipulates only the EAC Certification.
The conformity assessment process
The conformity assessment with the requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 031/2012 On safety of agricultural or forestry operation vehicles and trailers is carried out in the form of the EAC Certification. The choice of an appropriate scheme depends on the art of production:
- series production - Scheme 1c
- serial delivery - Scheme 3c
- single-unit production - Scheme 4c
The certification is carried out exclusively by notified bodies, which are registered as such in the uniform register of notified bodies and test laboratories of the EAEU.
In Supplement 2 to TR CU 031/2012 there are additional safety requirements for certain groups of agricultural equipment. The following requirements are mandatory:
- visibility and accessibility of machine controls
- steering system: reduced effort on the steering wheel or control levers
- engine start: impossibility of arbitrary movement of the machine
- driver protection if the vehicle has a sprayer
- processes of reducing speed, stopping, braking and keeping stationary in order to ensure safety stipulated by operational manuals, load level, speed of movement
The supporting documents must be submitted in Russian or in the official language of the member state of the customs union. The accompanying documents include:
- technical description and documentation
- design documents (drawings and diagrams)
- instruction manual
- list of security features
- delivery contract
- test reports
- data sheet
The manufacturer, which is not established in one of the Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union, is not entitled to apply for any EAC conformity certificate.
In accordance with applicable law and in accordance with the technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union, only an entrepreneur residing in the territory of the Customs Union may be designated as an authorized representative.
In order to get the conformity certificate, the foreign manufacturer must appoint an authorized representative in one of the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union. He represents the interests in the certifying bodies of the Eurasian Economic Union regarding the safety and quality of products and compliance with technical regulations. Our company - Schmidt & Schmidt - offers you an authorized representative on the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The products declared according to technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union must be marked with the EAC conformity mark before placing on the market. The conformity mark shall be affixed to each unit and (or) shipping documents. The marking must be carried out in such a way that it is easily recognizable and legible throughout the entire shelf life of the product. Appropriate marking may only be made if the corresponding production meets the requirements of all relevant technical regulations.
Time duration and costs of the conformity assessment procedure
Time duration and costs of the conformity assessment procedure depend on many factors such as product type, complexity of tests needed etc.
The exact conditions of the conformity assessment procedure are always determined individually on the basis of the documents received.
The conformity assessment process can take a few weeks.
