Industrial certifications for Russia
What is it?: The EAC Certificate proves that your product is compliant with the industry- and product-specific Technical Regulations and standards of the Eurasian Economic Union and is safe to operate in the territory of the EAC
Which Equipment?: Pressure equipment, machinery, low- or high-voltage equipment, pipe and pipe parts, plastics, heating equipment, electrical equipment, mining and conveyor equipment, railway equipment, devices burning gaseous or liquid fuel, bearings, glass products, medical products & equipment, sports equipment, etc.
Validity: Depending on your need and equipment, 3 years, 5 years or one-time export
Process highlights: Depending on the product characteristics, the certification process implies collection of the manufacturer’s company/factory information, testing the product and an inspection visit to an equipment production or operation facility. EAC certification can be done per piece for one-time export or for a serial production of a product with the maximum of 5 years for a workshop.
Required documentation: Technical datasheet with product characteristics / manufacturer’s extract from chamber of commerce / product MDR/ operating and maintenance manuals/ technical drawings / existing European or other production and QS certificates. In any specific case the scope of the required documentation, inspection visit details and duration of the certificate preparation are determined subject to the product type and the version/validity of the EAC certificate.Time to obtain: Between 3 weeks and 2 months (depending on the product).
What is it?: Certification that your product meets the safety requirements for explosion-proof equipment
Which equipment?: All explosion-proof equipment, including Ех-products forming a part of other equipment and installations; electrical equipment, equipment for mines & ore processing, equipment for areas exposed to gas, equipment for areas subject to explosion hazard.
Validity: Up to 5 years for serial production, or one-lot export
Process highlights: An audit of the production location is necessary, as well as special tests of product samples. If the product or equipment has obtained an explosion-proof certificate in the USA or EU, (FM or ATEX certificate respectively), it will simplify the certification process for EAC Explosion proof Certificate TR CU 012/2011, since the methods and rules of certification of such sensitive equipment are similar. Nevertheless, the FM or ATEX certificate alone is not sufficient to export the goods to the territory of Russia and Customs Union countries – you have to go through the EAC certification in any case.
Required documentation: Technical datasheet with product characteristics, technical description / manufacturer extract/ product passport / operating instructions / technical drawings / ignition hazard assessment / existing European or other certificates
Time to obtain: 4 weeks to 2 months. Request a quotation and readiness period for your Explosion-proof EAC Certificate.
What is it?: Declaration is essential to export the products, which are not subject to the mandatory EAC Certification, in the Eurasian Economic Union and prove that the delivered goods comply with the technical regulations and safety standards of Russia / the Customs Union.
Which equipment?: Safety-relevant industrial goods, which do not require a full EAC certification, such as motor fuels, industrial textiles, machinery for the food industry, etc. Please check with us if your product needs a Certificate or can be delivered under the EAC Declaration only.
Validity: Depending on your product type and your export plans, Declaration can be issued for longer term covering your repeated deliveries or for one-lot export.
Required documentation: Technical datasheet with product characteristics, technical description, operating and maintenance manuals/ technical drawings.
Time to obtain: From 1 week, depending on availability of the required documentation.

Which equipment?: Fire-fighting equipment (extinguishers, fire hoses, etc.), insulation materials, gas heating systems, electric cables, construction materials, etc.
Process highlights: The process of the certificate issuance involves the laboratory tests of the product according to safety protocol and in some cases an inspection visit to an equipment production or operation facility.
Required documentation: Product description / test reports / operating and maintenance instructions / existing European or other production and QS certificates/ manufacturer’s information. In any specific case the scope of the required documentation, inspection visit details and duration of the certificate preparation are determined subject to the product type and the version/validity of the EAC certificate.certificates

The process of certification is implemented by one of the several specifically developed procedure, each of them being applicable in specific cases. The notified body will evaluate which procedure will be implemented for the requested product and the required tests to be performed.
