Case study: EAC Certification of Valves TR CU 032/2013 | WWG
WWG is experienced in certification of various types of machinery and equipment. Based upon this experience, we post in our news block typical certification cases. This time we would like to tell about certification of valves.
In order to export pressure working equipment such as valves, a Certificate or Declaration of conformity with the Technical Regulation of the Customs Union (EEU) “On safety of the equipment operating under excessive pressure” (TR CU 032/2013) may be required.
This document complies with the PED (Pressure Equipment Directive) in Europe.
Depending on HS code and technical characteristics of valves, they might subject to Certificate or to Declaration conformity with TR CU 032/2013 “On safety of the equipment operating under excessive pressure” or even fall into exemptions from this TR CU 032 PED. In this case an Exemption decision or a Letter of Exemption (Refusal letter) can be issued.
Such technical characteristics as Diameter, Volume, Medium, Working Environment Group, Design Pressure, Design Temperature and Manufacturing Material Standard determine the type of conformity assessment document. For more information please study the tables: Equipment categories for Group 1 and 2 of Gases and Liquids are determined in accordance with tables from the appendix of the official statement on TR CU 032/2013
