Authorized Representation for EAC Certification

According to the regulations of the EEU States, it is required that the manufacturer must have a registered office in the Common Economic Territory in order to apply for EAC Certification. Thus, a representative of the manufacturer is required if the manufacturer does not have an establishment in the Eurasian Economic Union.

The representative must be located in one of the member states of the Customs Union. Often, a business partner or a distributor of the manufacturer from one of the states of the Eurasian Economic Union acts as the applicant. It is necessary to take into account that afterwards only this partner has an exclusive right of distribution for the entire certification period and must issue an authorization of sales activity for all other distributors.

In such situations, the manufacturer becomes dependent on his business partner, who acted as the manufacturer's contractual person during the EAC Declaration. If you wish to remain independent of individual distributors, we can provide you with a contract person. This task can be carried out by our Russian branch.

After successful EAC Certification, we will an authorization of sales activity to all your business partners. If, over time, you decide to part with certain distributors, we will support you in your decisions and withdraw the authorization accordingly.

EAC Certification processes are applied for and carried out in all participating states of the Eurasian Economic Union according to the same principle.
