  • Material properties (yield strength, tensile strength, long-term strength and creep strength limits, plastic deformation, viscosity, fracture strength, chemical resistance to the working medium, processability)
  • Weld seam factor depending on the base material of the components to be welded, welding process, connection form, NDT process and NDT scope and the operating conditions of the device
  • Predictable deviations from operating parameters during operation, possible manufacturing inaccuracies, possible deviations from the material properties of the pressure equipment
  • In the strength calculation, sufficient safety reserves for the pressure equipment shall be provided which must be taken into account when determining the allowable loads
  • Strength calculation of the device/system

Recognizable and permanently fixed nameplates shall be attached to the pressure equipment.These shall include the following information:

On 15.07.2011, the Customs Union Commission confirmed the single conformity mark of the Customs Union, which is the counterpart to the European CE mark. (Resolution No. 711 of the Customs Union Commission of 15.07.2011, as amended according to Resolution No. 800 of the Customs Union Commission of 23.09.2011).
The manufacturer (supplier) shall decide on the size of the mark and the method of application. The product may only be marked by the manufacturer (supplier) if it has undergone all the relevant prescribed TR CU conformity procedures in one of the member states of the Customs Union!

The following requirements must be met for the application of the EAC mark:

  • The mark shall be applied to each product unit, packaging or accompanying document
  • The location of the mark on the product, packaging and accompanying document shall correspond to the respective technical regulations
  • The mark shall be clearly visible, legible, recognizable and permanently affixed to the product
  • The mark may be applied by any method which ensures it is visible during the service life of the product
  • Characters on the mark shall be monochrome and contrast with the background color
  • The mark must be at least 5 mm in size



  • Measuring instruments must be registered, approved and entered in the National Register of Measuring Instruments for use in Russia at the ROSSTANDART Metrological Service (comparable to the PTB approval).
  • This is not GOST R certification or safety certification!
  • If a measuring instrument is already registered in the national register and a measuring equipment approval is available, initial calibration/ initial gauging may be carried out.
  • Currently, more than 1 billion measuring instruments are in use in Russia
  • Licensing of legal persons and individuals for the manufacturing, repair, sale and rental of measuring instruments



According to Law 102-FZ of the Russian Federation “On ensuring the uniformity of measurements” of 26.07.2008, all measuring instruments subject to approval for use in the area of ​​state monitoring of the uniformity of measurements shall be subject to an initial calibration.
An initial calibration is a calibration which is legally required and based on the national standards, with a corresponding marking of the calibrated item.
The expected compliance of the measuring instruments for the period of validity of the initial calibration shall be confirmed by a mark and (or) certificate.

Government Regulation No. 250 of 20.04.2010 in force since 01.01.2012:

  • Measuring instruments may only be calibrated in state, territorial, and metrological centers
  • The Government Regulation contains a list of concerned measuring instruments (de facto all)
  • Theoretically, calibration is no longer possible or permitted in factory equipment
  • For measuring instruments already imported into Russia, calibration must be carried out on site!



  • Testing and certification may only be carried out by the Ministry of Emergency Situations (accredited Russian certification body) in the fire protection system
  • For individual deliveries, inspection and certification is possible following the decision of the inspection body, possibly without an audit of the production facility (exception!)
  • For serial production, an audit of the production facility and pattern inspection is always required
  • Flammability classes are defined in accordance with Russian standards and are listed in the TR certificate
  • Flammability classes are different from European classes (4 classes each).
