Can CIG023 be Accepted for EAC (TR CU) Certificate?
We are often being asked if a manufacturer needs or has to provide CIG023 for EAC certification. CIG023 is a Factory Inspection Report issued by designated certification authorities.
TR CU conformity assessment procedures are established in the relevant technical regulations taking into account the Decision of the Customs Union Commission of April 7, 2011 № 621 “On Regulation on Procedures for Application of the Model Schemes of Conformity Assessment (Confirmation) with the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union”.
According to TR CU requirements, EAC (TR CU) Certificate of conformity should include an Act of the Production Site Analysis made up by an accredited in TR CU certification authority.
Production Site Analysis itself includes evaluation of documents provided by the applicant for a certificate, which confirm their ability to manufacture products stably, as well as checking the condition of the objects of conformity assessment (with an audit of the production site (factory inspection).
Thus, CIG023 Factory Inspection Report cannot replace Production Site Analysis in EAC (TR CU Certification) and is not accepted by Russian certification authorities.
CIG023 Factory Inspection Report can be provided additionally as one of the documents required for certification, but it is not mandatory.
