TR EAEU 043/2017 On requirements for fire safety and firefighting devices

TR EAEU 043/2017 is valid from January 2020. This technical regulation was developed to protect people, their property and the environment from fire, as well as to prevent attempts to mislead consumers. Its provisions are obligatory to all member States of the EEU. The technical regulations contain rules for identifying fire safety and fire extinguishing equipment, and provide both Certification and Declaration to confirm their compliance.

Conformity confirmation features

  • For certification there are schemes 1c, 3c and 4c, and for declaration – 3d, 4d and 6d
  • A certificate for serial production is issued for five years. For a batch (single specimen) ─ without a specified period. The declaration is registered for up to five years. For a batch (single specimen), the period is not set.
  • Information about documents is entered into the Unified Register
  • Products are marked with a single mark of circulation in the EAEU market
  • A set of supporting documentation is stored for 10 years from the expiration date of certificate or declaration for batch production, and at least 10 years from the selling date of the batch´s last specimen.

  • Technical conditions (description)
  • Technical documentation (any available is permitted)

  • Contract (supply agreement) and shipping documentation (for schemes 3c and 4c are used)
  • Agreement with the manufacturer (a copy), including with a foreign one, on ensuring the compliance of the supplied products with the requirements and on liability for non-compliance with these requirements (for a person authorized by the manufacturer) (Scheme 1c)
  • Documents confirming the conformity of the materials from which the product is made, its constituent parts or components

Declaration features

The declarant must collect the same set of documents as for certification, just adding next documentation, depending on the declaration scheme:

  • Product test report
  • Protocol (act) of production control (for serial production)
  • QMS certificate

The applicant can collect the necessary evidence documents by his own or with the help of a testing laboratory. TR EAEU provides the possibility for products certification, instead of declaration. Such a replacement is possible at the request of the applicant.
