Technical Regulation of Customs Union (TRCU)
The Federal Law on Technical Regulation No. 184-FZ dd. introduces the definition “Technical Regulations” on December 27, 2002. The law separates the technical requirements from the legislation requirements and establishes the approach of obtaining certification to the standards by meeting the mandatory requirements for safety and health insurance for different kind of products from the technical regulations.
Republic of Belarus, Republic of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Russian Federation commenced on June 2010 with the establishment of the unified technical regulation system. Government agencies of the three countries now delegate to the relevant authorities the adoption of the technical regulations of the Customs Union Commission. At the same time this Commission coordinates the three countries efforts to applying the technical regulation. The national norms/regulations prior to this adoption will be superseded by these new technical regulations of the Customs Union.
This new certification process is called EurAsian conformity and bears the mark EAC. Currently over 47 priority regulations have been added to the schedule of the Customs Union. These are:

EAC conformity and export of goods, declared according to TR CU
The Technical Regulations state what products require mandatory certification and the type of certification. These could be either a declaration of conformity (DoC) or certification of conformity (CoC). Once the CoC or DoC is issued, they are valid throughout the territory of the Customs Union (Republic of Belarus, Republic of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Russian Federation). During the period of transition to the new EAC certification process all other certificates were valid until March 2015. After this date the product had to comply with the new EAC requirements.
The EAC certification process requires the manufacturer to provide product documents such as the technical construction file, safety instructions, operators manuals and others, which will be checked by BAKIT to ensure compliance with the minimum requirements of the CU regulations and its referenced technical standards/ norms. After successful certification the manufacturer is allowed to mark the product with the EAC mark.
The TR CU certificate of conformity (CoC) or TR CU declaration of conformity (DoC) are an important part of the export document package and needs to be provided at the entrance boarder to the territory of the Customs Union.
