Export of multicomponent products to Russia can cause some difficulties. The problem can be to determine how many certificates would be needed. Sometimes each component must prove its conformity with the technical regulation of the Eurasian Economic Union.
Basically, multicomponent products are:
- wheeled vehicles
- multicomponent industrial equipment
The following technical regulations may come into consideration:
- TR CU 004/2011 On safety of low-voltage equipment
- TR CU 010/2011 On safety of machinery and equipment
- TR СU 012/2011 On safety of the equipment for operation in explosive atmospheres
- TR CU 016/2011 On safety of appliances burning gaseous fuels
- TR CU 020/2011 On electromagnetic compatibility
- TR СU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment
Multicomponent industrial equipment
Basically, the necessity to obtain certificates or declarations for equipment, including its components, is set out in the relevant technical regulations of the EAEU. For machines and equipment is the Technical Regulation TR CU 010/2011 On safety of machinery and equipment pivotal. According to this regulation only the whole equipment and not its components or spare parts is subject to EAC conformity assessment. Nonetheless, the manufacturer can voluntary have the components or materials EAC certified.
EAC Certification of pressure equipment
The Technical Regulation TR СU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment specifies uniform safety requirements for equipment operated with pressure and their marking.
Components of the pressure equipment, which are independent vessels, do not fall into the sphere of the regulation. Such components are compressors, pump housings, engine cylinders, and so on. The law does not require separate certificates for these parts.
For electrical equipment and components, the crucial requirement is compliance with TR CU 020/2011 On electromagnetic compatibility. Components which are constituent parts of other equipment and are not used independently, do not fall under this regulation.
Thus, the equipment components are exempted from a separate certification or declaration procedure. Only finished equipment is subject to conformity assessment.
The requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 018/2011 apply to all motor vehicles on wheels, intended for use on public roads, for chassis and individual parts which may affect the safety of the vehicle.
In case of delivery to assembly production, vehicle components are not subject to a mandatory conformity assessment. However, if the components are going to be used as spare parts for after-sales service, issuance of the EAC Certificate or EAC Declaration may be required.
EAC Certification or EAC Declaration is carried out as follows:
- Step: Filing of application at the notified certification body
- Step: The notified certification body checks the documentation
- Step: Product classification and sampling
- Step: Testing
- Step: Manufacturing audit (if set out in the technical regulation)
- Step: Monitoring of the certified product
- Detailed description of the plants
- Identification of the plants
- HS Codes
- Technical passport
- Safety justification
- Instruction manual
- Detailed drawings
- Technical file
- Test reports
- Available certificates: ISO, DIN, CE, CB
Other documents can be required.
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.
