Costs and Time Frames for EAC TR CU 037 RoHS will Increase in March 2020
Technical regulation of the Customs Union 037/2016 “On restriction of use of hazardous substances in electronic and radio devices” will become mandatory March 1st 2020. Starting from March 1st it will be obligatory to present a document of conformity or an exemption letter for TR CU 037 RoHS during customs clearance and for sales on the territory of the Customs Union.
Certification bodies are expected to increase their prices for Declarations and Certificates TR CU 037 in the nearest future. The number of accredited certification bodies for TR CU 037 is small now.
Additionally, it is expected that certification bodies that are accredited for TR CU 037 RoHS will be experiencing an overload because of increased number of requests for certification in March. Therefore, it will be taking longer than usual to process requests. The execution period for TR CU 037 Declarations and Certificates will increase.
For these reasons, if your product is subject to TR CU 037 RoHS, WWG highly recommends to apply for conformity assessment to this technical regulation as soon as possible. This will help you avoid unnecessary expenses and obtain the necessary documents without any delays.
