TR CU 018/2011 On safety of wheeled vehicles

The Technical Regulation TR CU 018/2011 On safety of wheeled vehicles has been developed primarily for the protection of life, health, property and the environment in EAEU countries as well as for the prevention of misleading markings. The regulation prescribes the requirements for the safety of motor vehicles on wheels (e.g. trucks and passenger cars) during the marketing and commissioning in the field of the Eurasian Economic Union.

The purpose of the Technical Regulation TR CU 018/2011 is both to ensure a socially acceptable level of safety in the operation of motor vehicles, as well as to coordinate with international technical standards of safety requirements for vehicles. The conformity assessment with the requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 018/2011 On safety of wheeled vehicles is one of the prerequisites for successful access to the Russian and Eurasian market.

Adopted on December 9, 2011
Came into force on January 1, 2015

Until July 1, 2016, the national conformity certificates were accepted for import into the countries of the customs union. From July 1, 2016 onwards the technical regulation TR CU 018/2011 On safety of wheeled vehicles permanently rendred the national technical regulation such as GOST or russian TR certification invalid.

TR CU 018/2011 consists of:

  • safety requirements for motor vehicles on wheels
  • rules for the marking of vehicles
  • regulation of the circulation of motor vehicles on the market
  • the conformity assessment with the requirements of the Technical Regulation

Application area of TR CU 018/2011

The requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 018/2011 apply to all motor vehicles on wheels, intended for use on public roads, for chassis and individual parts which may affect the safety of the vehicle.

According to TR CU 018/2011 no conformity assessment is needed for:

  • motor vehicles with a maximum speed of up to 25 km/h
  • motor vehicles intended exclusively for sports competitions
  • cars and motorbikes older than 30 years
  • trucks and buses older than 50 years
  • temporary imports no longer than 6 months
  • off-road and heavy commercial vehicles
  • vehicles owned by refugees
  • diplomatic vehicles

The conformity assessment according to TR CU 018/2011

There are four types of the conformity assessment with the safety requirements of the Technical Regulation concerning the safety of wheeled vehicles:

Marking

Every vehicle or component which has been confirmed to conform with the requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 018/2011 On safety of wheeled vehicles and for which type approval has been granted, an international ECE type approval marking is to be provided. The marking consists of a circle bearing the letter "E", the country code and the vehicle type-approval number.

TR СU 018/2011 On safety of wheeled vehicles in Russian language


We would be pleased to advise you professionally and competently on the EAC certification or declaration. We will verify free of charge whether your products are subject to the conformity certification obligation according to TR CU 018/2011 On safety of wheeled vehicles.

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.
