The EAC Certificate is the most important document with regards to exporting to the Eurasian Union.

As was (and is) the case with GOST, it is the technical regulations themselves that establish which products require an EAC Certificate of Conformity and which products require an EAC Declaration of Conformity, in order to be marketed within the Euroasian Economic Community.

👉 With respect to the GOST regulations, the EAC Certificates are innovative in three specific aspects. Regarding the first two (Applicant and Technical Passport) we recommend that you read the pertinent articles on the subjects. The third innovative aspect is the procedure that regulates how you obtain this certificate; it consists of the following 5 phases:

  1. Preparation, analysis, and compilation of the technical documentation
  2. Production control
  3. Technical tests
  4. Approval and registration of the Certificate of Conformity
  5. Product marking

Point 2 may involve an annual inspection for companies, including foreign companies, in the case of a Certificate with a duration of 5 years. The EAC Certificates for a single contract do not usually require an inspection.

The inspection usually delays the obtaining of the certificate, as well as increasing its costs; this is due to the Russian ministerial inspector having to go in person to the exporting company’s premises, with the company paying the expenses.

Due to the volume of certifications that the Russian or Eurasian authorities have to deal with, the inspection doesn’t always take place, but the exporting company has to be aware of this legal requirement. On the other hand, ⚠️ sending the samples for laboratory analysis is something that can’t be avoided; these are always mandatory. Please contact us for further information on these issues.

Finally, it should be remembered that, for any type C certification scheme, among the documents that the exporting company should be ready to provide are:

  • Any documentation that demonstrates the product’s quality and reliability, as well as clear guidelines and measures regarding its maintenance
  • The product’s technical documentation
  • Methodologies adopted to control production
  • Security Analysis and Management
  • Technical passport

👉 It normally takes 20-25 days to obtain the EAC Certificate of Conformity, upon receipt of the samples at the laboratory, whereas the EAC Declaration of Conformity will take around one week. This and other information can be referred to in the section dedicated to the EAC Declaration of Conformity.
