TR CU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment

The Technical Regulation TR СU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment specifies uniform safety requirements for equipment operated with pressure and their marking. The purpose of this is to ensure the protection of life, health, the environment and property.

According to the Technical Regulation TR CU 032/2013, the pressure equipment and pressure vessels are to be designed and manufactured in such a way that specific risks can be excluded during operation.

The compliance with the requirements of the Technical Regulation TR CU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment is a prerequisite for placing pressure equipment on the Russian and Eurasian market.

Although the requirements of TR CU 032/2013 have been coordinated with the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC (PED), they do not directly correspond to it.

Adopted on July 2, 2013

Came into force on February 5, 2014

On August 1, 2015, the TR CU 032/2013 finally overrode the national standards of technical regulation such as GOST or Russian TR.

TR CU 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment in the 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 032/2013 On safety of pressure equipment.

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.
