The EAEU Technical Regulation 020/2011 «Electromagnetic Compatibility of Technical Products» (EAEU TR 020/2011) is applied to all the electrical and electronic products which are capable to generate electromagnetic disturbances and (or) whose quality of functioning depends on the exposure to the external electromagnetic disturbances.
This Technical Regulation contains an exemption list of products that are not in the scope:
Wires, cords, cables and cable assemblies.
Technical products that contain only resistive load and have no automatic switching devices, e. g. electric heaters for household use that have no thermostats or fans.
Electric batteries and accumulators and lighting equipment powered by them with no active electronic circuits.
Headsets and speakers with no amplifying function.
Protective equipment generating transient electromagnetic disturbances of short duration (less than 1 second) as a result of its actuation in case of short circuit or abnormal situation in the electric circuit, with such protective equipment containing no safety devices (emergency cutout devices) with active electronic parts.
High-voltage equipment whose internal sources of electromagnetic disturbances are caused only by localized insulation defects (e.g. high-voltage field magnets or high-voltage transformers) provided that the said equipment contains no active electronic parts.
Capacitors, e.g. capacitors for power factor correction.
Quartz-crystal timepieces (with no extra functions, e.g. radio reception).
Plugs, sockets, fuses, switches and automatic switches with no active electronic circuits.
Passive aerials for radio and television reception.
There are two applicable forms of conformity compliance in accordance to the EAEU TR 020/2011:
The Regulation contains a list of products subject to mandatory certification procedure. The following products are subject to mandatory EAEU CoC:
Electric household appliances and devices.
Personal electronic computing machines (personal computers).
Technical products to be connected to personal electronic computing machines:
- uninterruptible power supply units;
- active acoustic systems powered from the alternating current mains;
- multimedia projectors/viewers.
The Technical Regulation works in a way, that if you cannot find the electrical or electronic product in the list of products subject to certification or in the exemption list, than the product is subject to the EAEU DoC procedure.
The main difference between the EAEU CoC and the EAEU DoC is that certification must be conducted with the third-party involvement (certification body and laboratory accredited in the EAEU system). For the EAEU DoC it is possible to accept the declaration on the basis of its own evidence without the third-party involvement.
Both the EAEU CoC and the EAEU DoC are mandatory documents and allow to put the products on the territory of EAEU members.
The EAC mark is applicable for both procedures - EAEU CoC and EAEU DoC and has the same power.
