EAC Certificates and Declarations
On January 1, 2010 Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan established a Customs Union (now evolved into Eurasian Economic Union — EAEU). In 2014-2015 two more countries joined the Union: Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. At present time, the participating countries have common customs legislation and a common certification system.
All products produced in the EAEU or being imported into the EAEU are obliged to be certified in accordance with EAEU Technical Regulations.
There are more than 40 Technical Regulations adopted at this moment. Each Regulation covers a specific group of products, for example:
- Electronic devices;
- Machines and equipment;
- Road Vehicles;
- Products for children;
- Clothing and footwear, etc.
Documents to be obtained
The certificate is issued on an official forge-protected blank, signed by certification authority representatives and stamped.
The declaration is issued on a blank A4 paper sheet, signed and stamped by the applicant.
The above EAC documents confirm that the product meets the requirements of Technical Regulations.
In Russia certificates and declarations are registered by the Federal Service for Accreditation (RusAccreditation) and published on its official website:
Who can require EAC Certificate or Declaration?
- EAEU Customs authorities — when the products are being imported into EAEU.
- Other EAEU bodies (health services, supervision inspectors etc.) — when the products are sold within EAEU.
- EAEU customers who buy the products.
Does your product really need EAC Certificate or Declaration?
It depends on:
- characteristics of the product;
- its purpose and functions;
- HS code.
In order to be sure whether your product should be certified or not we recommend to refer to Technical Regulations or contact our experts.
How to get EAC document?
To receive an EAC document the manufacturer should submit an application to the EAEU certification authority. The application should be composed in EAEU member country national language and contain general information about product and manufacturer.
In most cases, the certification authority will then request samples of the product to conduct testing on compliance with the requirements of Technical regulations, along with the technical documentation, datasheets, etc.
If the tests succeed the EAC document is issued and submitted to the proper register for publication. Published EAC document is officially recognized all over the EAEU and can be used, in particular, for customs clearance.
