Case study: EAC Certificate for Bluetooth Speaker TR CU 020/2011, 037/2016, FAC, FSS
Bluetooth speaker is a common product, often exported to Customs Union (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.). However Certification process of Bluetooth speaker is quite complicated. Here is a scheme of EAC certification for this type of equipment.
I. Speaking of TR CUs, Bluetooth speaker requires Certificate of conformity to TR CU 020/2011 “Electromagnetic compatibility of technical means” and Declaration of conformity to TR CU 037/2016 “RoHS”. Bluetooth speaker also requires elaboration of technical passport and operation manual.
To obtain Certificate of conformity with Technical Regulations of the Customs Union for serial production, site audit is required. One certification expert will go to the site audit for 1-2 working days + travel days.
The expert will need a translator during a site audit and it is necessary to organize meeting of the expert in the airport and take him / her to an airport after a site audit (certification experts do not speak foreign languages). If required, you can order WWG assistance for a site audit. In this case, one of our managers will act as a translator, will arrange airport transfer and will make sure that everything goes smoothly.
The list of necessary documents for FSS Exemption letter:
- Exact list of models/product names;
- Exact name, telephone number and address of the manufacturer;
- Legalized (apostilled or approved by consulate) power of attorney (POA) from the manufacturer (original).
EAC Local representative is required. WWG offers Local representative service for FSS Exemption letter and FSS Notification for free.
Lead time: 15 working days after all documents are applied to the FSS.
In practice however it may take about 3-4 weeks to finalize FSS Approval because one of the necessary documents is an apostilled and notarized power of attorney (POA) from the manufacturer to the Local representative (WWG or other company).
This POA is required to certify that the Local representative has the right to apply for FSS on behalf of the manufacturer to issue Approval for a certain product.
It is recommended to obtain FSS Approval for a period of 5 years maximum.
III. FAC Declaration is required for products that connect to a fixed network or wireless network (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.). The Ministry of Communications certifies the compliance of the equipment with the stated parameters. The document is valid only in Russia.
Basic required documents:
- Application (completed by us, verified by the Applicant);
- Technical description;
- CE test reports (if any).
Validity period is unlimited but we recommend to obtain it with 5 years validity. Lead time is 45 days after all necessary documents are provided.
WWG is always glad to assist you with registration of Declarations and Certificates of Conformity with every type of TR CU.
