In addition equipment intended for use in industries with increased dangers is subject to conformity assessment under Technical Regulation TR ZU 010/2011.

Used machines as well as components/ spare parts do not fall under any EAC conformity assessments.

Conformity assessment process

The conformity assessment with the requirements of TR CU 010/2011 On safety of machinery and equipment is carried out in the form of an EAC Certification or EAC Declaration.
