Russian market access for batteries

March 12, 2017

The most common source of power for modern mobile devices are lithium-ion (Li-ion) and lithium-polymer (Li-Pol) rechargeable batteries.

 

Modern Li-Pol batteries provide specific characteristics comparable with the characteristics of Li-ion batteries, but due to the lack of liquid electrolyte they are safer to use.

 

To date, the order of importation and use of such batteries in Russia is regulated both by the National System of Conformity Assessment of the Russian Federation and by the Uniform Requirements of the Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union (the Russian Federation is a member of this economic union, which also includes: Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan).

 

Depending on the technical requirements scope and product design - batteries can be subject to conformity assessment both in terms of safety standards and electromagnetic compatibility.

 

There are two types of batteries according to the following design features: 

 

1) Batteries that do not contain active electronic components; 

 

2) Batteries that do contain active electronic components.

 

Depending on the group, it is determined what is necessary to conduct an assessment to ensure Russian market access for the batteries.

 

1) Batteries that do not contain active electronic components:

 

  • Such batteries need only to comply with safety requirements within the National System of Conformity Assessment of the Russian Federation.

  • The conformity assessment of such batteries is carried out in accordance with standard GOST-R IEC 62133 (identical to the international standard IEC 62133).

  • Approval type is Declaration of Conformity.

  • The document confirming the conformity of the products to the established requirements is the National Declaration of Conformity of the Russian Federation (GOST R-DoC).

  • The conformity mark is "GOST-R".

 

2) Batteries that do contain active electronic components:

 

  • Such batteries need both a safety assessment in the framework of the National System for Conformity Assessment of the Russian Federation and an assessment of compliance with electromagnetic compatibility within the framework of the Unified Requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

  • The conformity assessment of such batteries is carried out both in accordance with GOST-R IEC 62133 (identical to the international standard IEC 62133), and according to standards describing the requirements for interference emission and immunity. As a rule, requirements are described in standards GOST 30805.22 (identical to CISPR 22) and GOST 30805.24 (identical to CISPR 24).

  • Approval type is Declaration of Conformity.

  • The conformity of the products to the established requirements is confirmed by two documents:

  • a) The National Declaration of Conformity of the Russian Federation (GOST-R DoC) - confirms the compliance of batteries with the established safety requirements.

  • b) The Unified Declaration of Conformity of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU DoC) - confirms the compliance of batteries with the established EMC requirement.

  • The conformity marks, which must be marked on the products - "GOST-R" and "EAC".
