Starting from March 1, 2020, all products in scope of EEU RoHS TR 037/2016 must comply with the legal requirements before they are placed on the market in Eurasian Economic Union. For imported products, the market surveillance will start at the border, as the customs authorities are entitled to require the proof of compliance for the concerned goods.
EAEU RoHS establishes restrictions for Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) with the same thresholds as per EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU. While product scope and exemptions are very similar compared with EU RoHS Directive, the key differences can be found in the field of personal scope and conformity assessment.
The conformity assessment procedure includes among others the registration of the declaration of conformity and EAC marking. It can be initiated by manufacturer with legal seat in one of the countries members of Eurasian Economic Union or by its authorized representative as well as by the importer.
