New rules on emergency and life preserver will be adopted

The Commission of the Eurasian Economic Union is negotiating about the adoption of the new technical regulations "On the safety of products intended for civil protection and protection in a state of emergency".

The new framework unifies technical safety requirements, which are used for civil protection and emergency situations. The regulations contain rules on identification, marking and forms of conformity assessment.

The scope of technical regulations "On the safety of products intended for civil protection and protection in a state of emergency" includes the following products:

  • Hermetic doors
  • Ventilators
  • Telecommunication technology for notification of the population
  • Emergency vehicles
  • Air transport equipment
  • Monitoring-Systeme
  • Means for structural elucidation of control
  • Personal protection means

Before the products are placed on the market in the European Economic Union, they must be confirmed with the relevant technical regulations. There are three methods (1c, 2c, and 3c) for this.

The validity of the EAC certificate is max. 3 years for series production and max. 1 year for server shipments.

When the technical rules will come into force is still unknown. Negotiations are currently underway and the technical arrangements are being analyzed by experts.
