Many “sensitive” issues, such as fire safety certificates or the registration of medicines, have not been subject to the complex community rules of the Eurasian Union. However, there is another area, equally or even more sensitive, which is regulated by the Technical Regulation CUTR 012/2011. Weโ€™re talking here about safety in potentially explosive environments.

This regulation applies to all machinery (and all its components) intended for operation in environments where deflagration (combustion) may occur, but it doesnโ€™t apply to the personal protective equipment used in such environments. Nor does it apply to medical technology, and, in this respect, it differs from the European Union’s ATEX regulation.

Based on the different types of potentially explosive environments the certified machinery will operate in, the regulation is divided into three macro groups:

Group I – Equipment for mines, quarries, and mineral processing plants

Group II – Equipment for use in areas exposed to gas, except underground construction

Group III – Equipment for use in hazardous areas, except underground construction

Within each group, it defines three levels of explosion protection (A, B, C) as well as six levels of fire protection.

Of all the EAC certificates, the Russian EX Certificate is undoubtedly one of the most expensive, and it can take longer to obtain, largely because they frequently require an inspection at the manufacturer’s premises. It should be noted here that EU ATEX certification is required.

After obtaining the Russian ATEX Certificate, which is valid for 5 years, one of the EX logos shown here must be added to the product’s label, next to the EAC logo.Logotipos del Certificado EAC EX para ambientes potencialmente peligrosos (ATEX)
