Technical Regulation in KazakhstanKasachstan

In Kazakhstan, similar as in Russia and Belarus there are national technical regulations besides the technical regulations of the Eurasian Union.
For certain products no uniform technical regulations have yet been developed on the level of common regulations of the EAEU. Conformity of such products is guaranteed by the national technical regulations.

There are the following national technical regulations in Kazakhstan:

  1. Requirements for emissions into the environment from burning different types of fuel in boiler systems of thermal power plants - since December 14, 2007

Legal framework

Conformity assessment is regulated by law:

  • Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan "On Technical Regulation" of November 9, 2004 No. 603-II;
  • Technical regulation "On conformity assessment procedures" (Decree No. 90 of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan of February 4, 2008)
  • other standards and regulations

Conformity assessment procedure

There are two forms of Conformity assessment according to the technical regulations of Kazakhstan:

  1. Certificate GOST-K*
  2. Declaration GOST-K*

* GOST-K is called so colloquially in order to distinct between EAC certificates and certificates according to national standards.

The aim of the obligatory confirmation of conformity is to chack and prove that the products comply with the requirements of the relevant technical regulations. This ensures the safety of the product for human life and health, environmental protection and the prevention of actions, and protects the consumer from being misled about quality and safety.

The certificates and declarations issued under the national legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan are only valid in Kazakhstan. The technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union apply to the majority of products.

In addition to a mandatory certificate, there is a voluntary certification. Products that are not subject to any technical regulations of Kazakhstan or the Eurasian Union can confirm their quality with a voluntary certificate.

Reform of the Technical Regulation within the Customs Union and EAEU

EAC Zertifikat, EAC Zertifizierung, EAC Deklarierung, EAC Deklaration

As a consequence of the coordination of national safety standards between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, the previous national Technical Regulations such as Russian GOST and TR certification were gradually phased out and substituted by the new Technical Regulations of the EAEU (TR EAEU) in every industrial sector. In addition to the EAC certification, the EAC declarartion has also been introduced in the Customs Union as a simpler and less expensive form of proof of conformity.

The new system was modelled on the european CE marking and many Technical Regulations are coordinated with EU guidelines. One can say that the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union correspond to the EU guidelines.

Schemes of the conformity assessment procedures

The GOST-K certificate or the GOST-K declaration can be issued for series production, single delivery or batch delivery. The scheme of the conformity assessment procedure depends on this. The scheme is determined by the applicant together with the conformity certification body.

Period of validity

The certificate is issued for a maximum of three years. The declaration is valid for one year.

Conformity mark

GOST-K

Products that have confirmed their conformity with the technical regulations of Kazakhstan must be marked with a conformity mark.

Products that have confirmed their quality and safety as part of voluntary certification are also marked with a conformity mark.

Required documents:

Technical documentation for TR certification

Certification duration and costs

The duration and costs of certification depend on various factors, such as the type of goods, the need for laboratory tests and the complexity of general tests. The exact conditions of the certification are always determined individually on the basis of the required documents.

Applying for a certificate can take from a few days to weeks.

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.
