Measuring instruments underly a necessary conformity assessment in form of the EAC Declaration.
Legal metrological control requires conformity with specified performance requirements. These requirements are set out in two technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union:
The following measuring instruments underly the conformity assessment:
- electrical conductivity meter
Conformity assessment procedure
The manufacturer is to carry out the conformity assessment procedure and to issue the EAC Declaration. Beforehand the samples of the measuring instruments must be tested in the notified laboratory in Russia. For each group of instruments, GOST standards have been developed. These standards contain permissible values of safety indicators. Test results are recorded in reports.
Beside the EAC conformity statement measuring instruments may need a metrological approval of the Federal Office for Technical Regulation and Metrology – Rosstandart. The metrological approval certificate confirms that the certified measuring instruments meet the minimum requirements of the technical regulation in Russia.
According to the Federal Law of the Russian Federation № 102 "On Assurance of Measurement Uniformity" of 26.06.2008, only certified and approved measuring instruments may be used in many areas which are subject to state surveillance.
These areas include:
- veterinary medicine
- work safety
- environmental protection
- arms industry
- operational safety
- cartography and geodesy

Appropriate marking may only be made if the corresponding production meets the requirements of all relevant technical regulations.
