When Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia formed the Customs Union (CU), which was later renamed to the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and expanded to include Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, they introduced first unified standards containing requirements that must be met by all products sold in the territory of its members states. These standards are called technical regulations (TR) and they were mainly developed to provide consumer safety, electromagnetic compatibility (if applicable) and uniformity of measurements.
There are more than 30 different technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union now. They cover a broad range of goods such as electronic and electrical equipment, clothing, packaging, machines, furniture, body protection, etc. Each product manufactured in Russia or imported into Russia must be tested for compliance with the corresponding Customs Union technical regulations.
The conformity assessment schemes differ greatly depending on the type and specifications of a product. Some products can be assessed with the EAEU technical regulations based on manufacturer’s own test reports and compliance declaration while others require the importer outsource the testing procedure to a professional laboratory accredited to issue certificates of compliance with the applicable technical regulations.
Products that have been successfully passed all conformity assessment procedures and found to comply with the EAEU technical regulations are marked with the EAC mark (EAC stands for Eurasian Conformity). This certification mark allows the access to the markets of all EAEU member states and is valid in the territory of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia.
