WHAT TO MAKE: CERTIFICATE FOR LAW VOLTAGE EQUIPMENT OR DECLARATION?

TR CU 004/2011 has only list of equipment which must be certified (you can't cell this equipment in Russia and Custom Union with out certificate). No list of equipment for declaration of conformity.

Article 7. p. 2. Low-voltage equipment that is not included in the above-mentioned List is subject to conformity approval in the form of declaration of conformity (Schemes 1d, 2d, 3d, 4d and 6d). The selection between conformity declaration schemes for low-voltage equipment that is not included in the above-mentioned List is made by the manufacturer (manufacturer’s authorized person) and/or importer.

ATTENTION! Declaration can be changed for certification. As may be decided by the manufacturer (manufacturer’s authorized person) and/or importer, the conformity approval of low-voltage equipment that is not included in the above-mentioned List (list of equipment which need certificate  (TR CU certificate) for selling equipment in Russia) may be changed in the form of certification in accordance with clause 5 hereof. 
 
or
Example of TR CU 010/2011 declaration (scheme1), and TR CU 004/2011 certificate for low vantage equipment (GOST certificate for loudspeakers) .

Most of the technical regulations of the Customs Union, allows you to change the declaration of products for certification. Certification is a rigorous process of conformity, with stiffer evidence. In contrast to the declaration, a declaration which the applicant may take evidence on the basis of their own (or their laboratory testing laboratory, but the test pieces which prepare the applicant) for the certification is always carried out sampling for testing and the tests are carried out only in the laboratory entered in the register Laboratory of the Customs Union. Moreover when sertifiikatsii serial production, as opposed to the declaration, the analysis of the state of production and inspection.
  • According to para. 5 of Article 8 TR CU 010/2011: According to para. 2 of Article 7 TR CU 004/2011: According to the decision of the applicant's declaration in lieu of compliance in respect of machinery and (or) equipment included in the list referred to in paragraph 1, item 4 this article may be performed by certification schemes Certification schemes equivalent declaration of conformity provided for cars and (or) equipment this technical regulation, including the absence or inadequacy of the applicant's own evidence of conformity requirements of TR CU.
According to the 184-FZ (Federal Law) declaration and certificate have equal legal force. But in practice, many manufacturers often instead declaration decorate certificate.
  • Article 23, Law 184: 3. The declaration of conformity and certificate of conformity have equal legal force and effect on the entire territory of the Russian Federation in respect of each unit of product manufactured in circulation on the territory of the Russian Federation at the time of the declaration of conformity or certificate of conformity for shelf life or the life of products, established in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation. (p. 3, ed. Federal Law of 18.07.2009 N 189-FZ)
Benefits of certification declaring:
  • Greater consumer confidence, regulatory authorities. Despite the fact that the certificate and declaration have equal legal force, more often, a declaration made on a sheet of white paper, not a protected form, and has no information about Orago certification (except for the code number of the declaration in the body) and experts is not enough confidence. Moreover, for such confidence, there are objective reasons. Declaration can register for 1-2 days, and many bodies have not right to do so has a straightforward, not even request documents (safety justification, specifications, etc.);
  • The advantage in tenders. Pumps and pumping units fall under the declaration of TR CU 010/2011. Our clients have been cases when the tender committee preferred the products to which the certificate issued, and on submission of the declaration requested further test report and safety case;
  • The certificate - requirements contracts. In terms of legislation it is not right, but if you have already signed the agreement, which agree to provide a certificate, then you will have to issue a certificate. Recommended in contracts to write a document confirming compliance with technical regulations or permits, in accordance with applicable law;
Advantages of the Declaration on the certificate:
  • The rate of production. If you have a set of documents, a declaration can be registered for 3-4 days, certification is in any case will take from 2-4 weeks;
  • No need for inspection control. The declaration does not provide for an annual inspection control;
  • We do not need factory analyze. Get Declaration on serial production for 5 years, you can not exit the production, which greatly saves the cost of the procedure;
  • Price. Declaration by 40-50% (except for declarations on the scheme 5d) cheaper certification procedures.
