Instructions and Manuals for EAC Certification
An EAC Operating Manual is required for successful EAC Certification or EAC Declaration. An EAC Operating Manual contains important details and information about the operation, construction, transportation, storage, maintenance, repair, recycling and disposal of a device. An EAC Operating Manual can be prepared simultaneously for several product series, models and types.
An instruction manual ensures safe use of the device, machine or equipment. An instruction manual must be prepared in Russian or another official Language of the EEU States.

Authorized Contractor for EAC Certification
According to the regulations of the EEU States, it is prescribed that the manufacturer must have a registered office in the Common Economic Territory of the Customs Union in order to apply for EAC Certification. If that is not the case, a manufacturer's representative is required to apply for the EAC Certification processes in the Customs Union of EEU Countries. The Authorized Contractor must be based in one of the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union.
Often the applicant is a business partner of the manufacturer from the EEU Countries. It must be taken into account that afterwards only this distributor owns the exclusive right of distribution for the entire certification period and must issue an authorization of sales activities for all other distributors. Thus, the manufacturer becomes dependent on his business partner, who acted as a contractual person during the certification process. If you wish to remain independent of individual distributors, we can provide you with a contract person. This task can be taken over by our Russian branch.
