PED certification in Russia

PED certification in Russia.JPG

In order to export equipment working under pressure to the territory of the Customs Union, Certificate or Declaration of conformity with Technical Regulation of the Customs Union (EEU) “On safety of the equipment operating under excessive pressure” (TR CU 032/2013) may be required. It is almost similar to PED (Pressure Equipment Directive) in Europe.

Usually, manufacturers do not take seriously this technical regulation but it is considered as one of the most difficult and time consuming among other TR CU. Execution period is from 30 to 45 days.

In order to process such a request, the following information is required:

  1. Working pressure
  2. HS code
  3. Volume (m3) or diameter(mm)
  4. Medium (Liquid\Gas\Vapour, etc)
  5. Working environment:

  • Group 1: working environment, consisting of a flammable, oxidizing, flammable, explosive, toxic gases, liquids and vapors in the single-phase state, as well as mixtures thereof

  • Group 2: all other operating environments, not covered by group 1

This info allows to understand what type of document is required declaration or certificate TR CU 032 which influences immensely the costs, the list of documents required, execution period and the procedure of certification itself (whether production site audit is required or not).  

Furthermore the list of necessary documents for certification may require elaboration of Safety Justification, Strength calculation, Operation manuals, Technical passport etc. We can always assist with this.
