EAC TR CU and FSB (FSS) Notification Requirements for Unfinished Electronic Devices or Devices Without Enclosure
In cases when a foreign company needs to ship unfinished electronic devices or electronic devices without enclosure to EAEU countries (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia or Uzbekistan) it may need to obtain necessary conformity documentation that will enable the devices to pass through EAEU customs. Generally, unfinished products are not subject to EAC regulations, however, FSB requirements may still apply if a product has encryption capabilities.
Electronic devices are usually subject to EAC TR CU 004/2011 “On safety of low voltage devices” and EAC TR CU 020/2011 “Electromagnetic compatibility of technical means”. Unfinished electronic devices are exempted from EAC technical regulations and therefore a foreign supplier may obtain an Exemption Letter or an Exemption Decision for these products to prove that they are not subject to mandatory EAC certification.
FSB (also known as FSS) requirements that are imposed on electronic devices with encryption may still apply to unfinished products if these products have encryption capabilities (for example input or output interfaces that use encryption). In this case, FSB Notification or FSB Exemption Letter should be issued for such product so it can successfully pass the EAEU customs clearance.
Applicant for an FSB Notification or an FSB Exemption Letter can be only a company that is registered in one of EAEU countries. It usually takes 15 – 20 working days to obtain such document. One of the requirements of FSB for a Notification or an Exemption Letter is to present an original hard copy of notarized and apostilled Power of Attorney from manufacturer to applicant. It takes around 2 weeks to prepare such document, thus increasing the overall timeline.
