EAC certificate under TR CU for Russia and EEU
Certification according to all technical regulations of the Customs Union (TR CU) and Eurasian economic union. Certificates for Russia – standards information.
What is EAC certificate?
An essential basis for cooperation between EEU countries is the uniform standardization of requirements for products and goods quality, turnover of which is carried out throughout the Eurasian economic union.
Within this framework, EAC certificate is a compliance document indicating that product or goods met all requirements of technical regulations. The name of EAC certificate is derived directly from its function: Certificate of Eurasian Conformity.
The predecessor of EAC certificate is GOST certificate, that was individually requested in every country in the absence of a unified system. By introducing EAC certification, the Eurasian Economic Union has achieved a significant degree of unification and simplification of the certification system.
Legal features of EAC certification
Introduction of EAC certification has fundamentally reformed the standardization system in individual countries. On the one hand, this has led to harmonization of the procedure, rules and certification process in all member states of the Eurasian Customs Union. On the other hand, EAC certificates of individual member states got fundamental importance throughout the Eurasian Economic Union. This means that EAC certificate issued in Russia is valid for Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Belarus as well as EAC certificate issued in the relevant member state of the Eurasian Economic Union. At the same time, national safety standards and certificates, for example, GOST R, have gradually lost their force and have been replaced by new technical regulations in the relevant industry.
The following information is specified in the certificate:
- Former certificate registration number
- Name of certified products
- HS code
