For a successful EAC Certificate or EAC Declaration in the Eurasian Economic Union, in most cases, the products must be tested by the approved test laboratories. On the basis of the test results, the test reports are carried out. The test report is an official document proving the conformity of the product with the specified technical data. The test reports are required for the conformity assessment by the notified body in the EAEU.

The tests may only be carried out by the test laboratories approved in the EAEU. The foreign manufacturers send the samples to the laboratory, where they are subject to various tests. It is also possible to carry out the test by authorized professionals in the production facility.

Test reports are required:

The following parameters are usually tested:

  • compliance with GOST standards
  • compliance with technical regulations of the Russian Federation
  • compliance with technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union
  • alcohol content
  • radioactivity
  • content of ozone depleting substances

All measurements and test results are recorded in the test report. If the product sample has successfully passed all tests, a written assessment and a test report will be drawn up. The test report certifies that the product meets all requirements of GOST or other technical standards. If the product fails, the test laboratory will notify in writing.

Test reports are required together with other necessary technical documentation for the conformity assessment process. Test certificate, technical passport, safety justification, instruction manual, SDS safety data sheet, etc. shall be submitted to the notified body. On the basis of these documents, the notified body decides whether an EAC Certificate or EAC Declaration can be issued. The test reports may be as well required by the customs authorities.

Test methods

Both destructive and non-destructive test methods are used. Some characteristics can only be confirmed by a destructive test such as fire protection. Other test specimens are in no way affected or even diminished.

Validity of a test report

The test report is valid for one year from the date of issue if the protocol has been applied for as part of mandatory certification. For further requests, the test reports will be issued for six years. If you require the test report for voluntary certification, the validity period is agreed upon in consultation with the notified body.

Deadline for issuing a test report

The duration of the test report issue depends on the type of product subject to test. Depending on the product type, the tests are more or less complex and may take more or less time.

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.
