EAC certifications issuance process
In order to have the needed compliance documents issued, it is necessary to provide a series of documents intended to add up to product file. This package of documents differs depending on whether it is a Declaration of conformity EAC or a Certificate of Conformity EAC.
An additional variable, with regard to the required documentation, is the chosen certification center. Both the EAC certifications are not issued by institutions or state agencies, but the assessment and emission are delegated to private laboratories accredited to one of the five state agencies (Russian, Belorussian, Armenia, Kirghiz and Kazakh) for the overview of certification bodies. This differentiation is also perceived throughout certification procedures, although in the end, the same result is to be achieved. For customers, this translates into large pricing, timing and procedural differences.
Generally, however, the Certificate TR CU (according to Technical Regulation of the Custom Union, interchangeable to the EAC reference that instead appear on the standard marking) compared to the Declaration TR CU requires more time, higher costs, a much more extensive documentation, inspections of manufacturing facilities and the presence of an ISO certificate.
