New National Technical Regulation for R&TT Products in Belarus

August 9, 2018

 

Currently in Belarus, R&TT products fall under the Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus #849, dated October 21, 2016. According to this Resolution,  R&TT products in Belarus are subject to the national conformity assessment procedure.

 

However, according to the Resolution 469 dated June 20, 2018 a new national technical regulation TP 2018/024/BY on RTTE will come in force from January 2019. The TP 2018/024/BY will replace the Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus #849 with regards to RTTE requirements.

 

Nevertheless, the national conformity documents that have been issued within the Resolution #849 are valid until their expire date.

 

For now, the national conformity mark СТБ is voluntary for use if the product meets the national technical requirements according to the Resolution #849. Starting from January 2019, the conformity mark TP BY is becoming mandatory to use when a product proves compliance with the requirements of TP 2018/024/BY.

 

The national conformity mark TP BY is formed of letters “T” and “P” symbolizing first letters of Belarusian phrase translated as"Technical Regulation". They are placed in a round-cornered frame that is broken by letters "BY" that symbolize "Belarus".

The graphic symbol of the national conformity mark TP BY is shown in figure 1:

In this Figure, "a" is a minimum measurement unit of the reference grid.

Minimum size "H" shall be at least 5 mm.

The conformity mark placed on equipment must be visible, legible, and indelible.

 

Conclusion:

 

  • Currently, RTTE products must meet the national technical requirements of Belarus according to the Resolution #849

  • The national conformity mark СТБ is voluntary to use

  • Starting from January 2019, the new national technical regulation TP 2018/024/BY on RTTE is coming into force to replace the Resolution of the Council of Ministers of Republic of Belarus #849 with regards to the RTTE requirements

  • The national conformity mark TP BY will be mandatory for the product that meets the requirements of TP 2018/024/BY
