Market LaunchCertificate CU TR 032 2013

Prior to launching pressure equipment onto the Customs Union market, the manufacturer / representative should:

  • comply with the basic health and safety requirements mentioned in the Technical Regulation CU TR 032/2013
  • apply procedures for conformity assessment
  • obtain conformity documents, as well as make sure that the latter is included in products
  • make sure that products bear the EAC mark 

In practice, any products coming onto the Customs Union markets (sales outlets and commissioning sites) after customs clearance should include originals / certified copies of certificates of conformity.

Conformity Marking EACEurasian Conformity mark EAC

The conformity mark "EAC" (EurAsian Conformity) consists of an acronym. It means that the products certified are compliant with the essential health and safety requirements of the Technical Regulations of the Custom Union.

High-pressure equipment complying with safety requirements and subject to conformity assessment procedures shall be marked with a conformity marking of products prior to being put into circulation on the market of the Eurasian Union’s Member states.

Conformity mark shall be affixed to each unit of high-pressure equipment, as well as put into its operational documents.
