EAC Declaration – last update 15.04.2016

EAC Declaration of conformity logoThe EAC Declaration of conformity for the Customs Union EAC is one of two new EAC Certifications documents introduced with the reform of technical regulations (TR CU) in Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. The latter being the EAC Certificate for the Custom Union EurAsEC.

The first, predominant difference compared to the GOST R Certifications is the validity extended to the three member countries of the Eurasian Customs Union: Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.  Shortly to be extended to Armenia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

The new rules have not entered into force simultaneously for all sectors of production, the legislation EAC in fact was scheduled in a three years time frame. The schedule is reported in the page devoted to the EAC regulations agenda.

In practice, for the EAC Declaration applicant, several differences are to be taken into consideration if compared with the issuance of a Certificate GOST R, a Declaration GOST R or a Certificate issued according technical regulations Gost TR.

New legislation on the EAC Declaration applicant

EAC declarationA significant difference for foreign manufacturers, is the need to be supported in the request of the Declaration of conformity EAC, by a representative established in the territory of the Eurasian Customs Union. This means that it is not possible for a manufacturer, not registered in one of the countries of the Customs Union, to attain the Declaration of conformity EAC independently. The applicant may either be a subsidiary of the producer on the territory of the Custom Union EAC, an importer, a distributor or a company that provides representation services for certification purposes. The name of the representative is therefore on the Declaration of conformity and it is entitled to use the document at will, including to authorize its use by other entities, including the manufacturer, through a provided proxy.

The most important differences with regard to the issuance process of the document are
concentrated undoubtedly in the verification procedure, which requires in some cases (depending on the type of product, the possibility to be easily transported and the validity of the declaration required) either inspection and testing of the product at the production facility or shipment of samples to the laboratory. Finally the assessment procedure is combined and sometime substituted by an analysis documents.
