Question: How do we declare compliance under Russian RoHS and what are the data requirements?
Answer: The EAC TR CU 037/2016 Regulation (Russian RoHS, EAEU RoHS, or Eurasian Economic Union RoHS) governs the restriction of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment for companies in the Eurasian Economic Union: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia. Companies operating in these countries must receive a EAC label (Eurasian Conformity Mark), which is similar to CE markings in the EU.
The data requirements for declarations are as follows:
- Application, which is to be verified by a local representative.
- Articles of incorporation of the local representative (State Registration Certificate, Tax Registration Certificate, Charter).
- Copy of the valid contract with local representative with the Liability Clause (verified by the manufacturer and the local representative).
- Technical description for all declared products.
- Test reports or other documents that confirm the compliance with the RoHS Directive (if available).
Samples may also be required, and it’s important to note that the EAC marking must be placed on the product.
