Important Considerations About EAC Certificate
• If a product is covered by one or more technical regulations related to EAC, an EAC mark must be placed on it in countries where the EAC Certificate is valid before it is placed on the market. In this context, all technical regulations concerning the product should be reviewed.
• Manufacturers of products covered by EAC are responsible for what technical regulations they must comply with during the manufacturing process.
• A product covered by the EAC Certificate may be placed on the market provided that it complies with the provisions of the most up-to-date technical regulations. In this context, manufacturers should closely follow all developments regarding EAC procedures.
• After getting the EAC Certificate, the manufacturer must place an EAC mark on it before placing the product on the market.
• The manufacturer should work with an authorized agency for EAC conformity assessment, if necessary.
• The EAC mark placed on the product has a specific format, just like the CE mark. Therefore, no other sign or seal of approval is allowed, which may replace the "EAC" statement with the EAC sign.
• The EAC mark indicates that the product fully meets the basic safety requirements specified in EAC procedures and related technical regulations.
Benefits of EAC Certificate
Certified producers have a faster access to the markets of the countries within the Eurasia Customs Union. In addition, it minimizes all kinds of legal risks and responsibilities related to the product. Within the EAC process, information is shared about the products that are guaranteed for conformity. This minimizes the time associated with works such as design, production, testing etc. and minimizes costs.
Producers holding EAC Certificates also increase the number of countries they can export. This increases operating income and profitability rate; it also improves business prestige. The sale of products that meet the necessary compliance and safety criteria abroad also increases the customer satisfaction of the manufacturers and ensures that all stakeholders have a respected business identity.
