EAC TR CU Certification of Towel Heaters for Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan
Prior to exporting and selling towel heaters in EAEU countries (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan), the products need to receive relevant documents that prove their conformity to EAC regulations.
Towel heaters are subject to:
- TR CU 004/2011 “On safety of low voltage devices”
- TR CU 020/2011 “Electromagnetic compatibility of technical means”
- TR CU 037/2016 “RoHS”
Heaters require an EAC certificate of conformity to TR CU 004/2011 + TR CU 020/2011 (which includes both technical regulations) and an EAC declaration of conformity TR CU 037/2016. Sometimes TR CU 037/2016 can be included in an EAC certificate TR CU 004/2011 + 020/2011, which means that there will be no need to obtain a separate EAC declaration TR CU 037/2016.
Factory audit is required to obtain an EAC certificate TR CU 004/2011 + TR CU 020/2011. Usually, a certification expert from an accredited certification body travels to a production facility for 1 day to conduct an overview and to select product samples that will be sent to a laboratory for testing afterwards.
Once production site audit and testing are conducted, it takes 10-20 working days to register and issue an EAC certificate.
It is important to keep in mind that after an EAC certificate is issued, the certification body that issued the certificate needs to conduct annual inspection control to maintain the validity of the certificate. Annual inspection control is conducted by a mean of factory audit or sample testing every year after the certificate is issued. An EAC certificate issued for 5 years requires 4 inspection controls to be conducted.
