Russian EAC declaration (EurAsian Conformity declaration)

.The importation of goods into the territory of the Russian Federation is regulated by the national customs legislation of the Russian Federation and international legislation of the Customs Union of the Eurasian Economic Union. The international legislation of the Customs Union provides for the admission into the market of low-voltage equipment and electronic equipment with the permitted characteristics. For legal importation, such goods require the certificate of the Customs Union.

According to the technical regulations of the Customs Union TR CU 004/2011 Safety of low-voltage equipment, a Russian EAC declaration is required for the import of electrical equipment intended for use at a nominal voltage from 50 to 1000 V AC and between 75 and 1500 V DC.

According to technical regulations of the Customs Union TR CU 020/2011 Electromagnetic compatibility, a Russian EAC declaration is required for the import of technical equipment that can create electromagnetic interference and/or whose functional quality depends on the electromagnetic interference in the environment. Thus, the EurAsian Conformity declaration for goods is a binding document for the import of various electrical products and electronic equipment.

The Russian EAC declaration is issued by authorized certification bodies with relevant accreditation from the Federal Accreditation Service. These organizations work on certification and registration certificates, and they issue the EurAsian Conformity declaration. The Federal Accreditation Service keeps the register of issued EAC declaration and carries out the functions of the main body of normative and technical provision systems for the EurAsian Conformity declaration. For the purposes of verifying compliance with the characteristics of low voltage equipment and radio equipment, the EAC declaration and a declaration of the Customs Union are used, which having the same legal force. The EurAsian Conformity declaration provides a more complex and lengthy procedure for registration compared with the Declaration. The maximum term of validity of the EAC declaration depends on the applied certification scheme and can be up to 5 years for serial products, and for a limited period of validity if the consignment certificate is not established. The EurAsian Conformity declaration is issued based on the application of the manufacturer or a Russian legal entity authorized to perform the functions of the manufacturer.

The provisions of international agreements take precedence over the relevant Russian laws and regulations do not supersede national legislation in this area. Therefore, the Russian EurAsian Conformity declaration is usually not the only necessary permit. According to international or national legislation, the Russian CCC certificate, the Russian RFC certificate, the Russian FSS notification or a Russian EAC license can be demanded in addition.

Dear Sir. I am representing a company about to start supplying temperature monitoring systems for grain silos to the Russian market. We have Atex approval and ISO9001. Could you please specify what approval/declarations we need and if we can "reuse" Atex/ISO, or part of it. Can you assist us, and can you estimate a price? Best regards Stig Kidde.

Dear Stig,
I took a look at the system’s description on your website.
The system needs EAC declaration (for EMC) + RFC certificate for wireless modules.
Depends on the frequency range and RF power it is also possible, that you will need to have a EAC license.
And if your system is using some encryption (due to remote access and authentication) then you need to have a FSS notification.
Please send me a more detailed technical description of the system to get more concrete answer.

I’m not an expert in certification for explosive atmosphere. Seems like there are no international agreement to “reuse” Atex approval in Russia.
ISO 9001 certificate could be used in EAC certification to obtain a certificate with a longer validity period.

Dear Gabriel,
Fiber optic cables, patch panels and patch cords are not a subject of EAC certification (declaration). Wired communication equipment with power source below 50V AC or 75V DC are not a subject of EAC certification too.

Are keyboards and mice subject to EAC certificate (or declaration)? What if they are embedded to non-PC products?
Sam 3/8/2017 11:32:49 AM
Hi Sam,
Keyboards and mice are not a subject of EAC certificate or declaration in any case because of a very low and safe electrical power (+3 … +5 V).
