Electrical devices within the Customs Union
Electrical devices shall comply with technical requirements within the Customs Union in order to be launched on the market.
Since EAEU technical regulations include mandatory requirements for safety aspects, the requirements of the EAEU technical regulations can be met by the application of relevant standards.
General Technical Regulations particularly relevant to electrical products are:
EAEU TR 004/2011 on the safety of low-voltage equipment
EAEU TR 020/2011 on the electromagnetic compatibility of technical means
EAEU TR 010/2011 on the safety of machinery and equipment
EAEU TR 037/2016 on the restriction of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment
No matter, if products are subject to conformity assessment according to the technical regulation EAEU TR 004/2011, they might be subject to other regulations as well, such as TR 020/2011 “On electromagnetic compatibility of technical devices”.
Note that the applicant for the conformity assessment procedure against EAEU TRs can only be a legal entity or a person that is registered in EAEU member countries.
Please keep in mind that some categories of electrical products have further national requirements within EAEU members countries.
At the moment, there are no common regulations on these areas within the EAEU. Thus, some members countries use their national regulations.
