TR CU 025/2012 On safety of furniture

In contrast to the European Union, where the furniture is generally not subject to compulsory CE marking, there is a special Technical Regulation in the Eurasian Economic Union, which requires conformity assessment and EAC marking.

The Technical Regulation TR CU 025/2012 On safety of furniture sets the requirements for furniture products and their use in order to protect life, health, property and the environment. Furthermore, marking is intended to protect consumers against misuse and misleading advertising.

According to TR CU 025/2012, the furniture should be manufactured in such a way that it meets the requirements of furniture safety. These include:

  • mechanical safety
  • chemical safety
  • hygienic safety
  • fire safety
  • electrical safety

The compliance with the requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 025/2012 On safety of furniture is the prerequisite for successful access to the Russian and Eurasian market.

Adopted on June 15, 2012
Came into force on July 15, 2014

On March 1, 2016, the Technical Regulation TR CU 025/2012 replaced the national standards of technical regulation in the field of furniture safety such as GOST or Russian TR.

Application area of TR CU 025/2012 On safety of furniture

The Technical Regulation TR CU 025/2012 applies to all furniture which is placed on the Eurasian market, i.e. either manufactured or imported from abroad. Individually crafted designer furniture is also covered by these rules, while second-hand furniture is not.

TR CU 025/2012 Certificate applies to:

  • children's furniture
  • school furniture
  • nursery furniture

TR CU 025/2012 Declaration applies to:

Other furniture for private and commercial use. Furnishings also fall under conformity assessment in the form of an EAC declaration.

TR CU 025/2012 does not apply to:

  • furniture for use in dental, medical and veterinary practice
  • furniture for use in travel by rail, sea and air
  • antique furniture
  • second-hand furniture
  • sample furniture for advertising purposes

It is to be noted that, regardless of whether a product is subject to a conformity test according to TR CU 025/2012 or not, they may also be subject to obligatory assessment according to other Technical Regulations, such as TR CU 004/2011 On safety of low-voltage equipment or TR CU 010/2011 On safety of machinery and equipment. In addition, other proofs of conformity may be required. In case of children's furniture, for instance, a compulsory TR fire protection certificate or the state hygienic registration is required.
