Russia EAC Certification

Russia EAC Certification

In order to appease industrial inspection authorities and meet national regulations, nearly all products imported into the Eurasian Customs Union (ECU) require Eurasian Conformity (EAC) certification. The ECU includes Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. The EAC mark confirms that a product is compliant with all safety and EMC standards set by the ECU.

The EAC mark has been in effect since August 2013; before that time, the GOST-R mark was prevalent in Russia. The EAC certification process has recently become muddled by:

  • changes in requirements from GOST-R to EAC
  • inconsistent information from certification agencies

G&M Compliance’s goal is to obtain certifications quickly and efficiently, and we partner with Russian certification bodies that share the same vision. In order to provide a smooth and expedient process for customers, we:

  • Work with certification bodies to agree on requirements at the start of the project
  • Use our technical expertise to resolve potential problems during the project
  • Track progress of the certification program to ensure it stays on track

G&M Compliance can assist with EAC certification in the following product categories:

  • Mining and heavy industrial equipment
  • Machinery
  • Low-voltage equipment (<600V)
  • Lighting

Rosstandart is the Russian government organization charged with maintaining and enforcing this certification system. In line with the current European approach, Russian law offers options for conformity assessment covering mandatory certification, accreditation, and self-declaration.

Key Steps for Obtaining the Russia EAC mark

Russian EAC certification requires going through a number of steps, including:

  • Analyzing requirements
  • Applying for certification and preparing for evaluation
