The Technical Regulations of the EAEU States include certification schemes and declaration schemes describing the possible process of obtaining admission documents.

EAC Declaration Process

As a rule, the EAC Declaration is executed by the manufacturer, importer or Authorized Person under the contract and is entered into the Unified Register of the EAEU Accreditation Body. Various declaration schemes are used to formalize the EAC Declaration.

The EAC Declarations are drawn up in accordance with the safety requirements of the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union and on the basis of test reports and product samples.

The Difference between Certification and Declaration

Certificates are issued for more dangerous and responsible products. The responsibility for the products lies more on the certification body that issued the certificate. The list of products subject to mandatory certification is clearly defined by the technical regulations.

The declaration is accepted by the applicant (a person authorized by the manufacturer) on the basis of their own evidence obtained with the participation of the manufacturer or a third party – the testing laboratory. The procedure is declarative (notification) in nature. The responsibility for the declaration lies with the applicant (a person authorized by the manufacturer).

The cost and time of registration of the certificate depends on several factors:

  • The Cost of Registration Depends on the Volume and Complexity of Testing Samples
  • Availability of Operational Documentation
  • Type and Properties of Products
