Safety Assessment for EAC Certification

Safety Assessment for EAC Certification

A Safety Assessment for EAC Certification or EAC Declaration is an official document in which the risk assessment and required safety measures are specified on the basis of design documents and technical data. The EAC Safety Assessment contains information about risks and safety measures for a machine or plant. The EAC Safety Assessment is permanently updated, all innovations, repairs and extensions must be entered into the EAC Safety Assessment and EAC Risk Assessment.

Safety Assessment for EAC Certification 

The purpose of the safety assessment is to protect the environment, prevent accidents and ensure the safety, health and well-being of employees.

The requirements for safety assessments are specified in the following guidelines:

  • GOST-R Standard 33855-2016: Safety Assessment
  • GOST-R Standard 54122-2010: Requirements for Safety Assessments
  • TR CU 010/2010 - On the Safety of Machinery and Equipment
  • TR CU 032/2013 - On the Safety of Equipment Operating with Overpressure

The GOST Standard 54122-2010 - Requirements for Safety Assessment was developed together with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

Types of EAC Safety Assessments

Full Safety Assessment: Is this case, evidence and testing of the machinery is required. This form of safety assessment includes test results and is issued in writing.

Short Safety Assessment: No evidence is required here. This form of safety assessment is used to declare the compliance of the installation with the requirements of the Technical Regulations (TR CU).

Requirements for the EAC Safety Assessment

The EAC Safety Assessment is a required document for successful EAC Certification. A safety assessment is necessary to obtain proof of conformity for the plant, machinery or equipment operating under pressure. This takes the form of an EAC Certificate or an EAC Declaration. 

Creating the EAC Safety Assessment

The EAC Safety Assessment is issued during the development and production of the machine. All major risks are considered and recorded. A safety assessment can be developed for multiple series, types and models. The original safety assessment is kept in the engineering office or with the manufacturer. The exporters, operators and distributors each receive a copy of the EAC Safety Assessment.

Structure of the EAC Safety Assessment

A EAC Safety Assessment is structured according to the producer's technical data and the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, Annex VII: Technical Documentation for Machinery.

The individual sections of the safety assessment are:

  • Introduction
  • Parameters and Characteristics of the Machine
  • General Safety Concept and Design of the Machine
  • Requirements for the Reliability of the Machine
  • Requirements for Personnel
  • Risk Assessment of the Machine
  • Safety Requirements, Commissioning of the Machine
  • Safety Management, Machine Operation
  • Quality Management, Machine Operation
  • Environmental Management, Machine Operation
  • Information Analysis, Machine Operation
  • Safety Requirements for the Disposal of the Machine

The following documents are required for the preparation of the safety assessment:

  • Instructions of Use, According to GOST-R Standard 2.610-2006
  • Certificates for Individual Installation Parts
  • Technical Passport
  • Technical Drawings
  • Detailed Calculations
  • Internal Test Results

Duration of the EAC Safety Assessment

The duration and cost of preparing the EAC Safety Assessment depend on both the product and the industry in question as well as the related Technical Regulations and necessary tests.

Authorized Contracting Person for EAC Certification

According to the regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union, it is required that the manufacturer must have a registered office in the Common Economic Territory of the EEU States in order to apply for EAC Certification. If that is not the case, a representative of the manufacturer is required to apply for and conduct EAC Certification processes in the Customs Union.

The contracting person must have a registered office 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 after the certification only this distributor owns the exclusive right of distribution for the entire certification period and must issue an authorization of sales activities to all other distributors.

In such situations, the manufacturer becomes dependent on his business partner, who acted as the manufacturer's contract person during EAC Certification. If you wish to remain independent of individual distributors, we can provide you with a legal contract person. This task can be performed by our Russian branch. After successful EAC Certification, we will issue an authorization for sales activity to all your business partners. For detailed information regarding the requirements of a contract person, please contact our team, we will help you.

EAC Marking of certificated Products 

All certified and declared products must be labelled with an EAC Marking of the EEU States. The EAC Marking demonstrates EAC Compliance with the EEU States' Technical Regulations (TR CU/TR EEU). The requirements for EAC Conformity Marking of the Eurasian Economic Union were established in the decision of the Eurasian Economic Union Commission N711. The EAC Marking of products subject to mandatory certification according to the standards of the EEU States is a basic requirement for access to the EAC market.
