The type approval process for RF, telecom and other equipment capable of creating electromagnetic emissions in Customs Union is administered by the Eurasian Economic Commission.

There are two types of conformity assessment procedures as follows:

Public consultation on changes to CU TR on EMC and Safety have started.
On 16th of November 2021, public consultation on projects for amendments to Technical Regulation of the Customs Union 004/2011 "On safety of low-voltage equipment" and TR CU 020/2011 "On the electromagnetic compatibility of technical devices" have been started by the Eurasian Economic Commission Council.

There are multiple substantial changes proposed in both projects, amongst which is an option to use the test reports, certificates and other documents issued by international certification systems if they are made in accordance with the established conditions.

With this in mind, all interested parties are strongly invited to submit their comment and further proposals for each change introduced if in favour, which could ease certification process significantly. 

For more details on all of the changes proposed in both projects or if you wish Eleos help in filing comments, please get in touch.

Amendments to the EAEU TR 010/2011 "On the safety of machinery and equipment".
Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission conducted a public consultation this summer on the draft "Amendments to the technical regulations of the Customs Union "On the safety of machinery and equipment" (TR CU 010/2011)", proposing important changes that also affect EAEU TR 020/2011 on EMC and 004/2011 on Safety.

The main changes are aimed at clarifying and/or amending the following sections of the regulations:

  • - Scope of applications of the TR.
  • - List of products subject to TR.
  • - Definitions. 
  • - A set of documents supplied with the equipment.
  • - Lists of standards.

The Draft is expected to come into effect on 1st of December 2021 (6 months from official publication), however no official date was yet confirmed, and it is likely to be pushed out into 2022.

It is expected that transition period will be also given for the products that will no longer require Type Approval under TR 010/2011 and would need to prove compliance under 020/2011 and/or 004/2011 (e.g. household appliances for home use only, audio and video equipment and other).
