The technical regulation TR CU 010/2011 “On safety of machinery and equipment” provides mandatory safety requirements and prescriptions for conformity assessment of pumps. There are two ways to assess conformity: the EAC certification and EAC declaration. The functional range and type of construction determines which type of conformity assessment may be applied.
Depending on the functional range and type of construction one of the following technical regulations applies for conformity assessment of pumps:
- TR CU 010/2011 “On safety of machinery and equipment”
- TR CU 004/2011 “On safety of low voltage equipment”
- TR CU 020/2011 “On electromagnetic compatibility”
- TR CU 012/2011 “On safety of EX equipment”
Depending on the technical regulation, or an EAC certification or an EAC declaration is to be used.
The following types of pumps underlie an EAC certification:
- chemical pumps
- pumps with nuclear energy
- electric pumps
For the conformity assessment of electric pumps the technical regulation TR CU 004/2011 On safety of machinery and equipment and the TR CU 020/2011 On electromagnetic compatibility apply.
All pumps and pump pipe nozzles which underlie the TR CU 010/2011 “On safety of machinery and equipment” shall be declared. This holds for:
- positive displacement pump
- flow pump
Components and spare parts do not have to be declared.
For the conformity assessment in form of an EAC declaration the scope of supply of your products is crucial as the chosen procedure depends on it. In general procedures for serial delivery and serial production are to be distinguished.
The prescriptions for EAC declaration can be found in the art. 9 TR CU 010/2011 “On safety of machinery and equipment”. It can be chosen between the procedure 1d, 2d, 3d, 4d, 5d and 6d.
The EAC declaration has to be issued by the applicant. It is strongly recommended to also attach the test reports. The required documentations may depend on the country of origin.
Required documentations for pumps produced outside of the EAEU
- instruction manual in Russian
- technical passport
- quality management certificate ISO 9001:2015
- CE-Certificate/CE-Declaration of conformity with the european standards
- test report from the applicant
- safety justification
- GOST R certificate for pumps and accessories (if necessary)
- test report
The accompanying documentations shall be complete in order to conclude the EAC declaration successfully.
It is recommended to prepare the documentations in advance, for example in the period of contract negotiations with the manufacturer of foreign pumps.
Required documentations for pumps produced inside of the EAEU
- instruction manual
- design documentation
- technical passport
- safety justification
- test report from the accredited test laboratory
- GOST R certification for the parts of the pump
- test reports
Exceptions of EAC certification
Pumps which are used in explosive or hazardous facilities underlie particular prescriptions. In order to proof conformity for such pumps a specific certificate and expert opinion on the fire safety is required. Schmidt & Schmidt is happy to help you prepare the required documentations.
Pumps for usage in regions with high earthquake hazard also require a specific certificate. For measuring the seismicity the MSK-64 scale is used.
If the producer doesn't have a location in the EAEU, it does not have the right to apply for a required conformity assessment of its products. In order to still be able to be the subject of a conformity assessment, the foreign producer must give a representative in the EAEU power of attorney. They will defend the interests of the foreign producer when working with the certifying bodies with regard to safety and quality of products and in accordance with technical regulations.
As the law stands and in accordance with the GOST of Russia only an operator based in the territory may be named power of attorney.
Time duration and costs of EAC certification of pumps depend on many factors such as commodity type, complexity of tests needed ecc. The exact conditions of the EAC certification are always determined individually on the basis of the documents received.
The application for an EAC certification can take a few weeks.
