EAC and Fire Safety Labeling of Carpets for the Russian Market | EAC Carpet
Depending on the application field and material composition of carpeting, a mandatory fire certificate for Russia may be required.
Products or equipment subject to the mandatory certification procedure in accordance with Federal Law on Technical Regulation No. 184-FZ are marked with a special conformity sign. The mark of conformity with the technical regulation is applied to those products with respect to which the technical regulation is already in force, and a certificate of conformity has been obtained in accordance with this technical regulation (TR).
Products subject to fire safety requirements should be labeled with the appropriate conformity mark. The market circulation sign is a combination of the letters “T” (with a dot above it) and “P” inscribed in the letter “C”, stylized as a measuring bracket, having the same height and width.
The image of the conformity sign should be one-color and contrast with the color of the surface on which it is applied. Below are examples of its application:
In addition to fire safety certificate, carpets may also require additional documents. Thus, declaration of conformity to TR CU 017/2011 “On the safety of light industry products” is issued for carpets and machine-made products (carpets, carpet paths, floor paths, textile floor coverings).
For carpets that are not subject to the declaration of conformity to TR CU 017/2011 “On the safety of light industry products”, an Exemption letter against TR CU 017 and 982 regulation (GOST R) can be issued. If needed, a voluntary certificate GOST R can be issued for carpets as well. Voluntary certificate can be a benefit for sales in Russia.
Labeling of products subject to the requirements of the technical regulations of the Customs Union is as follows:
Labeling of products that obtained a Voluntary certificate GOST R looks like this:
