New lists of standards applied for TR CU 012/2011 “On safety of equipment operating in hazardous environments”
New lists of standards have been adopted for the technical regulations for explosion-proof equipment
On December 7, 2020, the 158th decision of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission was published, which approved new lists of standards for voluntary and mandatory compliance with the requirements of the technical regulations of the Union TR CU 12 “On safety of equipment operating in hazardous environments”.
The document was adopted by the members of the EEC Board on December 1. It will start working traditionally in 30 days from the date of publication.
The new list of standards with test methods for explosion-proof equipment, including the rules for sampling used to assess the conformity of such equipment and compliance with TR CU 012/2011, has 81 items.
As in the previous version of the lists, the items are grouped thematically by product type and standard provisions. In particular, these are GOST And GOST IEC with General requirements for equipment for explosive environments, GOST with rules for sampling for testing and inspection control, as well as standards for:
- mine devices of electric explosion;
- fuel stations;
- intrinsically safe systems;
- internal combustion piston engines;
- gas analyzers, etc.
Some submitted standards will be applied until a certain period of time. For example, until June 30, 2023, IEC state Standards are applied for electrical installations, GOST for the performance characteristics of headlamps used in mines, etc.
The new list of standards for voluntary compliance with the technical regulations for equipment for working in explosive atmospheres has a similar number of items-81. Some standards will also be applied until June 30, 2023.
As for the availability of national standards in the lists, they are applied until the corresponding GOST is included in the list.
Please note that the current version of the list of standards for testing and conformity assessment includes 104 items and the list of "voluntary" standards – 110.
