Products to be placed on the market in Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union for the first time are subject to the conformity assessment in accordance with the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union in form of an EAC certification or EAC declaration. If the conformity check is successful, the products must be marked with the EAC conformity mark. EAC is an abbreviation for Eurasian Conformity .

The EAC is very similar to the European CE marking.

The EAC marking is necessary to inform consumers and supervisory authorities of the Eurasian Economic Union whether products comply with the safety requirements and Technical Regulations and that all necessary tests have been carried out.

Legal framework

The uniform EAC marking of the Eurasian Economic Union with the EAC mark was defined by the board decision of the EAEU comission No. 711 from 15.07.2011.

The EAC mark thus replaces the national conformity marks such as GOST-R, GOST-K and TR in Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia.

The EAC conformity mark may only be affixed to the products which meet all requirements of the Technical Regulations of the EAEU. Only in this case can the products be imported into the territory of the EAEU and sold there.

Important characteristics of the EAC-marking

  • Products that underlie more than one Technical Regulation due to the nature of the product, must also be equipped with an EAC marking. All applicable Technical Regulations must be taken into account.
  • It is the responsibility of the producer of a product to consider which Technical Regulations apply.
  • The product may only be brought to market and used if it fulfills the regulations of all applicable Technical Regulations and thus the conformity assessment with all applicable regulations has been done.
  • The producer attached the EAC marking to the product.
  • If requested, a name of certification body is to be appointed.
  • Besides the EAC marking, no other symbols or seals of approval that could question the validity of the EAC marking are allowed.
  • The EAC identifier confirms the full compliance with the "essential safety requirements" that are determined in the Technical Regulations.

The EAC sign can be installed in any manner that guarantees its legibility throughout the lifespan of products.

The EAC label should be attached to each individual production unit, piece of packaging or accompanying documentation.

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.
