TR CU 025/2012 On safety of furniture

Technical regulation of the Eurasian Customs Union (TR CU) 025/2012 is a set of requirements to ensure the furniture product safety before being launched in the territories of Russia and EAEU member States. It aims to protect consumers from poor-quality furniture and unscrupulous producers.

What does TR CU 025/2012 cover?

The technical regulation covers personal furnishings for adults, children, trade, hotels, sanatoriums, catering and financial institutions. However, medical, antique, used and repaired furniture, as well as exhibitions, promotions and transport applications are not.

Proof of Conformity

If your activity is related to the production or delivery of products covered by the technical regulation on furniture, you will have to pass the conformity assessment with the regulations by obligatory EAC Certification or EAC Declaration.
