Ex Certification for Russia and EAEU

Electrical and non-electrical components, devices and equipment intended for use in explosive or potentially explosive atmospheres require the ATEX-Ex EAC Certificate note.png prescribed by the Russian Technical Regulation TR CU 012/2011 "On the safety of equipment for work in explosive environments ".

The global regulation on ATEX equipment is defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Russia has shared its approach. For this reason, if the equipment is already ATEX/IEC Ex Certified, the requirements foreseen by the TR CU 012/2011 will be intrinsically met, consequently the equipment will be able to successfully obtain the Ex EAC Certification foreseen by Russian legislation. Conversion remains necessary, the presence of the International Certificate is not sufficient to export the equipment in the Eurasian Custom Union (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia), but it is mandatory to obtain the Russian EAC Certificate of conformity for Ex-proof equipment.
The Technical Regulation TR CU 012/2011 establishes that explosion-proof equipment always falls under the Ex-proof EAC Certificate; in order to obtain the Atex EAC Certificate it is necessary to perform specific tests on the components or on the equipment, to examine the manufacturing procedures, to inspect the production plant and process the technical documentation in Russian language.
The conformity marking consisting of the EAC and Ex symbols as shown below:
