EAC certification of pumps

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.

Legal framework

Depending on the functional range and type of construction one of the following technical regulations applies for conformity assessment of pumps:

  1. TR CU 010/2011 “On safety of machinery and equipment”
  2. TR CU 004/2011 “On safety of low voltage equipment”
  3. TR CU 020/2011 “On electromagnetic compatibility”
  4. 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.

EAC certification

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.

EAC declaration

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.

Accompanying documentations

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

We develop and translate the technical documentation, which is needed for EAC Certificat or EAC Declaration according to technical regulations

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

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.

Authorized representative

Authorised Representative Russia and EAEUIf 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 an EAC certification of pumps

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.

In our video, we explain what an EAC Certification is and how and where to certify or declare your products for the introduction on the EAEU market.

The EAC Certification and the EAC Declaration are complex procedures that attest your products the conformity with the technical regulations of the EAEU and require a lot of know-how. Schmidt & Schmidt will support you with the certification of your products for the EAEU market.

The EAC certificate of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is an official document, that proofs the conformity of the products with the harmonized technical regulations of the member states of the EAEU. The products, whose conformity with the technical regulations could be confirmed by the certificate of the EAEU, may be moved and sold in the whole customs area of the member states of the EAEU.

The EAC Declaration of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is an official document that proofs, that the products meet the minimum requirements of the technical regulations of the EAEU. An EAC declaration is issued by the manufacturer, importer or an authorized representative and listed in the official register. Those products, whose conformity with the technical regulations are confirmed by the declaration, have the permission to be freely moved and sold in the whole customs territory of the member states of the EAEU.

The EAC certificate can only be issued after a quality assessment, which has to be carried out by a certification body accredited in one of the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union. The certification is conducted on the basis of technical documentations, company-internal created test reports, or rather test reports provided by accredited test laboratories, as well as on basis of a manufacturing audit on site. The certificate is printed on an official pre-printed form, which has several forgery-proof elements and is authenticated by the signature and seal of an accredited body. The EAC certificate is usually issued for “complex” products that require an extensive control by the authorities.

With the EAC Declaration the manufacturer, importer or authorized representative declares the conformity of his products with the minimum requirements of the technical regulation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). As distinguished from the EAC certificate, the EAC declaration is issued by the manufacturer or importer himself. All necessary tests and analysis are or made by the manufacturer or in some cases by the laboratory. The applicant issues the EAC declaration himself on a usual piece of paper. The EAC declaration has to be listed in the uniform register of the EAEU by an accredited certification body of one of the member states of the EAEU.
