The Eurasian Economic Union has its own conformity mark now

On February 18, 2016, the resolution of the Eurasian Economic Commission № 15 On changes to the Decision of the Customs Union's Commission № 711 of July 15, 2011 „On the unified EAC Mark in the member states of the Customs Union“ was published.

The Decision of the Customs Union's Commission № 711 sets the legal guidelines for the EAC Marking. Die update to the regulations was necessary, as the Eurasian Economic Union replaces the Customs Union.

Throughout the text the term "Customs Union" was replaced by "Eurasian Economic Union".

Thereby, the "EAC" mark remains unchanged, although it is not called "Conformity Mark of the Customs Union" anymore, but "Conformity Mark of the Eurasian Economic Union".

The EAC mark points out, that the products have undergone the conformity assessment in the form of the EAC Certificate or the EAC Declaration and comply with the safety requirements of the Technical Regulations of the EAEU.

The resolution comes into force on April 18.
