ЕАС certification

EAC certification (EAC – Eurasian Conformity) is a procedure for confirming product conformity with Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union EAEU (former Customs Union CU). Five states are members of the Union: Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. There are two ways to confirm conformity in accordance with the Technical Regulations – issuing certificate and registering declaration. EAC certificates and EAC declarations are a guarantee of quality and safety of products imported into and circulating in the EAEU countries.

WR Group has its own accredited certification body and provides services on products conformity assessment for the Eurasian Economic Union markets. WR Group’s accredited experts will assess compliance of goods and production equipment with current Technical Regulations and will issue required ЕАС certificates and declarations.

An ЕАС certificate for a product is required in two cases:

  • to import goods or equipment into one of the EAEU countries
  • to put products into circulation or to commission equipment on the territory of the EAEU

ЕАС certificate is a permit document confirming that quality characteristics of imported products are compliant with the requirements of Technical Regulations and allowing the sale of products within the EAEU countries without hindrance.

Only certification bodies accredited in the national certification system are entitled to issue ЕАС certificates. WR Group’s certification body is registered in the Russian Federation and is included in the national part of the Unified Register of Accredited Entities of the Federal Accreditation Service Rosakkreditatsiya.

Preparing for ЕАС certification

Before starting conformity assessment procedure, it is necessary to determine:

1. Is the product subject to mandatory conformity assessment?

Based on the information about the name and purpose of the product, as well as HS code, WR Group’s experts will evaluate the necessity of product conformity assessment according to Technical Regulations of the EAEU.

Some products do not require confirmation of their conformity with Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union. In this case, the applicant obtains a refusal decision. A negative decision on an application is issued exclusively by an accredited certification body. The refusal must be submitted to the customs authorities when importing products into the territory of the EAEU. It is a justification for the non-submission of product permits to the supervisory authorities.

WR Group will issue a refusal decision for products that are not subject to mandatory conformity assessment according to TR EAEU.

2. Requirements of what Technical Regulations apply to the product?

A total of 49 Technical Regulations are in force in the Common Territory of the EAEU. WR Group’s experts will determine which Technical Regulations apply to the products and provide a list of documents required for conformity assessment.

3. What type of confirmation is required?

There are two ways of confirming compliance with Technical Regulations: by issuing an EAC certificate or registering an EAC declaration. Which one of the two conformity assessment forms is applicable to the product is specified by the Technical Regulations. The main difference between ЕАС certification and ЕАС declaration is the distribution of responsibility between the manufacturer and the organization performing conformity assessment. With the issuance of the EAC certificate, the applicant and the accredited certification body are equally responsible for the conformity of the product. With the registration of the EAC declaration, the applicant alone bears the responsibility. WR Group issues ЕАС certificates and ЕАС declarations in accordance with the requirements of current Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union.

4. Which conformity assessment scheme may be applied?

Conformity assessment schemes are specified in the Model Conformity Assessment Schemes approved by EEC Council Decision No. 44 of 18.04.2018. There are 9 certification schemes and 7 declaration schemes. The schemes applicable to products are prescribed in each Technical Regulation. The model schemes define the specific actions and elements of the procedure necessary to decide on the product conformity, differentiating between serial products, batch and single products.WR Group’s certification experts will help to determine certification or declaration scheme, considering the number of items imported, and will provide a list of documents required for conformity assessments.

ЕАС certification process

ЕАС certification process

The procedure of product conformity assessment according to Technical Regulations of the EAEU is a complex process. WR Group consistently goes through all process stages of issuing EAC certificates or EAC declarations and takes full responsibility for compliance with all norms and laws.

1. Application to certification body

According to EAEU laws, only a legal entity registered in the member state of the Eurasian Economic Union can apply for ЕАС certificate or EAC declaration.

WR Group provides the applicant service in the Russian Federation. Our applicant is a registered legal entity on the territory of the EAEU. We will draw up an applicant contract and provide a power of attorney for signing. We will supervise the completion and submission of the application to an accredited certification body.

2. Provision of required package of documents

With the application to the certification body, the applicant has to submit a set of documents from the manufacturer. The package of documents is formed individually, in accordance with the requirements of the Technical Regulations. All legal and technical documents necessary for conformity assessment should be provided with a translation into Russian.

WR Group’s specialists will compile a list of documents and information necessary to assess conformity with the Technical regulations applicable to the products. We will help to prepare documents. WR Group’s technical writers will develop complete and detailed technical documentation in Russian language, taking into account requirements of national standards.

Accredited translators of the WR Group will promptly translate texts from any language into Russian and provide documents in an edited format.

3. Product sampling for testing

Depending on the chosen certification or declaration scheme, the manufacturer should provide product samples for testing in an accredited laboratory on the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union. Sampling is conducted in accordance with the requirements of the current interstate standard GOST 31814 “Conformity assessment. General rules of sampling for product testing upon confirmation of conformity” and certain Technical Regulations of the EAEU.

WR Group’s specialists will organize sampling for testing and monitor compliance with the requirements of the procedure, including sealed packaging, samples shipment and formalization of relevant acts.

4. Samples importation and testing in an accredited laboratory

Samples testing as a part of the EAC certification procedure must be carried out strictly in an accredited testing laboratory in any of the EAEU countries. The samples, as well as any other cargo crossing the borders of Russia or other EAEU countries, should undergo a customs clearance procedure. The availability of a cargo customs declaration is a prerequisite for the subsequent issuance of an EAC certificate by an accredited certification body.

WR Group will quickly and reliably deliver samples to the accredited test laboratory. We will import samples for testing to the territory of the EAEU, including customs clearance and issuance of customs declaration.

5. Production audit

Conducting production audit is one of the conditions for issuing an EAC certificate for series-produced products. An accredited expert of the certification body visits the manufacturer of the declared products for production audit. The expert checks the availability of normative and technical documents operation and intended use of the equipment, competence of the personnel, marking of the equipment, the system of incoming, acceptance and periodic tests, the state of the measuring instruments. A plan of procedures as well as objects of inspection are drawn up for each production facility individually. The progress and results of the inspection, as well as the necessary corrective actions, are documented by the accredited auditor in the production analysis report. The certification body makes a decision on issuing an EAC certificate based on this act.

The procedure of the production audit is regulated by the national standard GOST R 54293 “Production audit upon conformity assessment”.

WR Group will arrange visit of an accredited expert to the production site around the world. During the production audit, WR Group experts will check the state of production control facilities in accordance with the program and assess meeting of each requirement. We will provide an expert opinion in the form of an act with all annexes.

6. Submission of certificate or declaration layout for approval

Approval of the EAC certificate or EAU declaration layout is an important step for the WR Group in the conformity assessment process. Before issuing the ЕАС certificates and ЕАС declarations, we send the document layout to the manufacturer for checking and confirming the correctness of the data contained in the document. We provide the layout of the certificate or declaration with an English translation for easy verification of the data by a foreign manufacturer.

7. Issuance of EAC certificate or registration of EAC declaration

Once an EAC certificate or an EAC declaration has been issued by an accredited certification body, its number is entered in the Unified Register of the national accreditation system of Rosakkreditatsiya. The original document is sent to the applicant and is kept by him/her until the expiry date. A certified copy of the EAC certificate/declaration is provided to the client.

EAC marking

Products that have obtained certificates or declarations of conformity with the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union should be marked with an EAC sign on a mandatory basis. The EAC mark as a single sign of products circulation in the EAEU markets, its shape, size and rules of application are approved by the Decision of the Customs Union Commission No. 711 of July 15, 2011 “On a single sign of products circulation on the market of the Eurasian Economic Union and the order of its application”.

The single circulation mark is depicted by a combination of 3 stylized letters “E”, “A”, “C” which are made using right angles with the same width and height and form the exact proportions of a square on a contrasting or light background. The abbreviation EAC stands for Eurasian Conformity.

The place of the EAC mark application on products, packaging and shipping documentation is set out in the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union TR CU / TR EAEU. If the marking cannot be affixed to the products themselves, it is affixed to the operational documentation. The size of the Single Mark is determined by the manufacturer or supplier who has obtained the right to use it. The basic size must be at least 5 mm.

The EAC marking attests that the certification or declaration procedure has been completed and the necessary laboratory tests have been carried out and visibly confirms that the products comply with the requirements of the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union that apply to them.

WR Group will advise on product marking and check the correctness of the marking layouts. We will translate the marking layout into Russian. We will develop bilingual marking layouts with the Single EAC mark for equipment in compliance with the requirements for the image and placement of the marking.

Pattern approval certificate

Current Russian legislation sets certain requirements for measuring instruments. Measuring devices, installations and systems used in the Russian Federation must comply with the requirements of Technical Regulations in Russia and provide unified objective and reliable measurement results.

One of the forms of state regulation in the field of ensuring the uniformity of measurements in Russia is metrological certification. Within the framework of metrological control, the type of measuring instruments is approved. Measuring instruments pass through metrological tests and, upon their successful completion, are included in the state register as approved measuring instruments in Russia. Certified measuring instruments can be used in Russia.

WR Group registers measuring instruments and interacts with metrological centers and laboratories at the stage of technical and metrological testing. Technical and metrological tests of measuring instruments in the Russian Federation are carried out by FBU “Rostest-Moscow” and other state centers for testing measuring instruments.

Approval of the type of measuring instruments and the issuance of a Pattern Approval Certificate are carried out by the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology Rosstandart on the bases of successfully completed tests of measuring instruments. WR Group provides the documentation package and test protocols to Rosstandart and maintains communication with the Agency in the decision-making and certificate issuing processes.


The Pattern Approval Certificate is registered in the uniform state register of measuring instruments and allows the certified measuring instrument to be used on the territory of the Russian Federation. You can find approved measuring instruments by the number of the Pattern Approval Certificate on the FSIS “Arshin” portal: https://fgis.gost.ru/fundmetrology/registry

We register Pattern Approval Certificates. We will help you collect a complete set of documents and develop missing technical documentation. We will send samples of measuring instruments to an accredited testing laboratory or metrological center in Russia. We will provide the test reports to the Rosstandart. We will take over the interaction with government agencies until the issuance of the Certificate.

Primary calibration

Primary calibration is another form of state metrological control and supervision in Russia, along with the Pattern Approval Certification. Approved measuring instruments should be calibrated to confirm the compliance of their indicators with the established metrological requirements. During calibration, errors are determined, the values of which should not exceed the permissible limits specified in the description of the type of a specific measuring instrument and its operational documentation. Calibration is regulated by article 13 of the Federal Law of the Russian Federation No. 102 “On ensuring the unity of measurements”.

WR Group conducts primary calibration of certified measuring instruments. WR Group organizes the visit of accredited experts for calibration to any place, depending on the possibility of transporting the verified measuring instruments and economic factors. The results measuring instruments calibration are authenticated by a verification mark and/or a calibration certificate.

Certified measuring instruments must be primary calibrated prior to the commissioning and after repairs. The availability of a Pattern Approval Certificate is a prerequisite for the primary calibration. Results of the primary calibration are registered in the Federal Register and entered in the operation manual or technical data sheet of the device. During operation, measuring instruments are subject to periodic verification. The time interval between such verifications is determined and approved during the type testing and is specified in the Pattern Approval Certificate and in the method of verification.


Verification can be extraordinary if the calibration mark or seal on the measuring instrument was damaged during the operation. Also, an extraordinary verification is required after re-adjustment of the measuring instrument or putting the measuring instrument into operation after long-term storage.

Only accredited verification bodies in the Russian Federation are entitled to carry out primary calibration.

WR Group calibrates measuring instruments in accordance with the state verification scheme procedure and relevant method of verification established when approving the type of measuring instrument.

By means of primary, periodic or extraordinary calibration we will determine the accuracy of measuring instruments and confirm their conformity with metrological requirements.

Fire Safety Certification

In the Russian Federation, fire safety requirements apply to certain product groups. A fire safety certificate is required for the sale and operation of such products on the Russian market, along with conformity assessment in accordance with the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union. The list of products that are subject to mandatory fire safety certification is contained in article 146 of Federal Law No. 123 of July 22, 2008. Fire certificates issued for products from the list are valid only in the territory of the Russian Federation.

WR Group confirms the compliance of products with fire safety requirements developed and approved by Russian legislation. In accordance with the characteristics of the products, WR Group’s specialists will choose a certification scheme and ensure that fire tests of samples are carried out in an accredited laboratory on the territory of the Russian Federation. WR Group’s accredited certification experts will issue fire safety certificates based on the test reports of selected samples.

A mandatory fire safety certificate is issued for potentially hazardous products and confirms its safety and the safety of the materials from which the products are made, in terms of flammability, combustibility, toxicity, etc.

The presence of a fire certificate is a prerequisite for conformity assessment of products according to requirements of the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union TR CU and TR EAEU as well as the GOST R system, and the subsequent issuance of certificates or declarations of conformity.

The procedure for obtaining and issuing a fire safety certificate in Russia is determined by the Technical Regulations on Fire Safety Requirements. The most important stage in fire safety certification procedure is samples testing in an accredited laboratory. Methods and a detailed description of the testing process are contained in the regulatory documents – Technical Regulations of the EAEU or GOST standards, – the requirements of which the products fall under.

We will help you prepare a package of documents required for the fire safety certification. We will prepare and send samples for testing and organize fire tests in a specialized accredited laboratory. Accredited certification experts of WR Group will issue a fire safety certificate.

State Registration Certificate

The State Registration Certificate SGR is an expert opinion on the safety of product that has passed hygienic tests in an accredited laboratory. State registration procedure is required for goods that are listed in the Unified List approved by the Decision of the Customs Union Commission No. 299 of May 28, 2010. The purpose of state registration is to confirm that the products meet the requirements of state sanitary and epidemiological production regulations and are safe for human health.

WR Group issues state registration certificates required for importing products into the EAEU countries. WR Group’s specialists support manufacturers in the state registration procedure, from analyzing the required documents and completing the application to sending samples for testing and issuing certificate.

State registration has replaced national hygiene certification systems. The unified procedure of state registration has been in effect in the Eurasian Economic Union since July 1, 2010.

The conformity of the declared products with the established sanitary and hygiene standards in Russia is confirmed by Rospotrebnadzor. Certificate of state registration of the declared product is issued once and for an indefinite period. The issued state registration certificate is valid in all countries of the Eurasian Economic Union.

We will determine the need to go through the state registration procedure for your products. We issue state registration certificates for mineral water, alcoholic products, children’s food, dietary supplements, cosmetics and disinfectants, household chemicals, personal hygiene items and other products according to the Unified List.

GOST

A GOST certificate is an official confirmation that the products comply with national quality and safety requirements.

The abbreviation GOST dates back to the times of the Soviet Union. The State Committee for Standardization – Gosstandart, founded in the USSR in 1925, fulfilled the tusk of developing and approving mandatory and recommended standards for many years. In the USSR, GOST meant “state all-union standard”. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union and unification of states in the CIS, GOST has become an “interstate standard”. In 2003, the state and interstate standards operating in Russia were recognized as national standards.

National standards are adopted in any state by the national standardization body: in the Russian Federation – Rosstandard, in Belarus and Kazakhstan – Gosstandards, in Ukraine – UkrNIUC, in Uzbekistan – Uzstandard, etc. In Russia, national GOST standards are applied voluntarily, with the exception of standards for defense products and for the protection of information constituting state secrets or other information of limited access.

Certification according to the Russian GOST is provided by certification bodies accredited by the Rosstandard. The basis for GOST certification in Russia is Federal Law No. 104-FZ of April 5, 2016 “On Technical Regulation’.

WR Group has an accredited certification body and conducts conformity assessment according to the GOST R certification system. WR Group’s specialists will issue mandatory GOST R certificates and declarations for certain product types and help to obtain voluntary GOST R certificates.

The GOST R certification system has long been the main system in Russia for assessing product conformity with state standards. After the Decision of the Eurasian Economic Union countries of June 18, 2010 on harmonization of national safety standards between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan came into force, the former national rules of technical regulation and GOST were gradually abolished and replaced by new Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union TR CU and TR EAEU in each industry.

GOST R certificates are still widely used. Conformity assessment in accordance with the requirements of GOST R standards remains mandatory for many types of products.

Products subject to mandatory certification according to GOST are subject to the Government’s Decree No. 982 of December 1, 2009 “On approval of the unified list of products subject to mandatory certification and the unified list of products compliance confirmation of which is made in the form of declaration of conformity” when imported into Russia.

A voluntary GOST certificate is issued at the initiative of the applicant for goods that are not included in the mandatory certification lists.

GOST R certificates are valid throughout the Russian Federation. Goods cannot cross the Russian border without mandatory GOST R certificates.

WR Group’s certification experts will determine which system the products are subject to and carry out the appropriate conformity assessment procedure. We provide applicant services in the Russian Federation. We develop technical documentation and prepare a necessary document package. We send samples for testing to an accredited laboratory. We issue mandatory and voluntary GOST R certificates.

FSB notification

Computers, mobile gadgets, radios, high-frequency devices, wireless devices with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth are encrypted equipment. This type of equipment can be imported into the territory of the EAEU only if a special permit document FSB notification is available. The notification informs government agencies about the presence of cryptographic/encryption elements in products. Based on the results of the notification, a certificate is issued that confirms registration of the device in the unified register of notifications. The registered device can be imported, exported and in circulation on the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union.

WR Group provides support in issuing permits for import of goods with elements of encryption and cryptography into the territory of the EAEU countries. WR Group’s specialists check registered FSB notifications for the products and determine the need to register new notifications. We will help you prepare a package of documents and receive a notification from the FSB for the import of products to Russia.

Often, the objects of the FSB notification are electronic devices that can be used on the territory of the Russian Federation for both civil and military purposes. The purpose of the FSB notification is to detect, register and manage such devices in order to prevent a possible threat to national security. A complete list of devices subject to approval is established by the Decision of the EAEU Economic Commission of April 21, 2015 “On measures of non-tariff regulation”.

Registration of notifications on the characteristics of products containing encryption tools in Russia is carried out by the Center for Licensing, Certification and Protection of State Secrets of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation. In other EAEU countries, notifications are registered by their own state authorities.


Information about registered notifications is contained in the unified register of notifications
We will determine the category of controlled product and help to prepare the necessary document package. We will send documents and materials to the authorized body for registering the notification. We will ensure the unhindered movement and circulation of products with encryption elements throughout the EAEU.

Industrial safety

Compliance of industrial equipment with the technical standards and safety requirements is confirmed by ЕАС certificates and declarations, as well as by conclusions of industrial safety examinations. The purpose of the examination is to assess conformity with the rules approved by the legislation of the state in which the equipment is operated. In the Russian Federation, the fundamental regulatory document in the field of industrial equipment is the Federal Law No. 116-FZ “On the industrial safety of hazardous production facilities”.

WR Group will arrange an industrial safety examination of technical devices, buildings and facilities in accordance with federal regulations and standards. We will register hazardous production facilities in the Rostekhnadzor. WR Group cooperate with licensed partners and has its own experts in the field of industrial safety.

According to the Federal Law, the industrial safety examination procedure is mandatory for:

  • hazardous production facilities
  • technical devices used at hazardous facilities
  • buildings and structures

The industrial safety examination applies to equipment that is not subject to the requirements of the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union. The equipment must undergo an examination in two cases: before the start of its operation at a hazardous production facility and when it is re-commissioned after modernization, resale, etc. Industrial safety examination is carried out in order to prevent accidents and incidents at industrial facilities.

Only expert organizations licensed by the Rostekhnadzor are entitled to carry out industrial safety expert examination. The examination includes several stages, from the selection of materials and documentation to the appointment of experts and carrying out of the inspection. The expert opinion with the conclusion about the compliance / non-compliance of the facility with the industrial safety requirements is signed by the experts and entered into the register of industrial safety expert opinions of the Rostekhnadzor.

According to Federal Law No. 116-FZ, objects are recognized as dangerous if they use / process / store / transport:

  • flammable, combustible, explosive, toxic and other hazardous substances
  • high pressure equipment
  • lifting mechanisms
  • melts and alloys of ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • as well as objects for mining and underground work

Depending on the level of potential hazard of industrial accidents, hazardous production facilities are divided into 4 classes: from low hazard facilities (IV class) to extremely high hazard facilities (I class). By the conclusion of the examination and when registering a hazardous production facility in the state register, it is assigned a hazard class I, II or III.

WR Group’s experts identify a hazardous production facility, develop and approve information characterizing the facility in the Rostekhnadzor. We submit documents for registration of hazardous industrial facilities to the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision Rostekhnadzor.

The WR Group provides educational courses and workshops for workers in the field of labor protection, fire, environmental and industrial safety. We hold seminars and courses for advanced training, professional retraining, pre-certification training, as well as vocational training and certification of specialists in production areas.

We will determine the conformity of the objects of examination with industrial safety requirements in accordance with the established procedure. We will issue and provide an industrial safety expert opinion. We will register a hazardous production facility. We will provide training for personnel, workers and specialists.
