The Eurasian Economic Union withdrew from Eurasian Economic Community on 1 January 2015 and had three foundation members Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. Armenia joined this merger on 10 October 2014, and on 12 August 2015 Kyrgyzstan complemented the alliance of the current five Member States of that Union.
With an eye to sell the products in Russia, the members must go through the national certification system. The GOST-R system was available until 2003. However, to adapt to the global demands of the economy, the GOST-R system of the Russian Federation was gradually transferred to the TR Declaration according to legal decree. The major purpose of such certification system transformation in Russia was that trade, economy and technical development would not be unnecessarily embarrassed by administrative barriers.
Kazakhstan, like Russia and Belarus, is a founding member of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). Therefore, whole import products are subject to mandatory certification in accordance with the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union (TR CU). The products must be certified with an EAC certificate or an EAC declaration. Before the TR CU system was introduced in Kazakhstan, the GOST-K certificate was applied.
In Belarus the importation of all goods, as in the other countries of the Customs Union, is also subject to the TR CU certification / declaration requirement. In addition, there are additional licensing requirements for specific products and goods, which are monitored by the Department of Civil Protection's GosPromNadzor Department. Products that fall into this jurisdiction are subject to the additional review before being imported into Belarus and then registered by GosPromNadzor.
In 2015, the Accession Agreement of Kyrgyzstan for the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) was signed. Since then, Kyrgyzstan has had the same import regulations as the rest of the EAEU because the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union (TR CU) regulate the security provisions for the goods and products within the EAEU. All imported goods must be also certified by TR to prove that they meet these requirements. Without this certification, import to Kyrgyzstan is impossible.
Armenia has been a member of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) since October 2014. As a result, Armenia is subject to the same common certification rules as the rest of the Customs Union. The technical regulations ensure common safety standards in the Customs Union countries. It is not allowed to import the goods to Armenia without such certification, as customs clearance will not be carried out without appropriate certification documents.
