Eurasian Economic Union EAEU RoHS

EAEU ROHS COMPLIANCE

The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) between Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia has enacted the Technical  Regulation (TR) 037/2016 on the restriction of hazardous substances (RoHS) for electrical and electronic equipment, requiring product testing or assessment. 

 

This Economic Union and the Eurasian Customs Union have agreed to restrict the same 6 first European Union RoHS substances at the homogeneous material level:

  • Cadmium,
  • Chromium hexavalent
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • PBBs
  • PBDEs

The thresholds are the same too. 

 

However, restricted phthalates under the EU RoHS are not in the scope of the EAEU one.

 

The obligation to comply with EAEU RoHS, sometimes called Russia RoHS, comes into force on March 1st, 2020.

How to comply?

  • As a manufacturer or an importer, be ready to show evidence of a comprehensive technical file.
  • The technical documentation includes a RoHS test report or an EU RoHS Declaration of Conformity (DoC), the bill of materials (BOM), manufacturers ISO certificates, user guide in Russian and a local representative agreement.
  • To prepare the technical file, the same approach as for EU RoHS is recommended, using standard IEC 63000.
  • The DoC must be signed by a local representative and submitted to an accredited Certification Body in one of the EAEU Member States, along with the technical documentation.
  • This approach is aligned with the EMC and Safety Approval process.
  • The DoC of your products is published in a database managed by the EAEU.
  • EAC mark the product.
