Intertek offers a full compliance solution for the Russia RoHS (CU TR 037/2016) law for brand owners placing their products on the Russian market.
As of March 1, 2020, companies placing electrical and electronic equipment on the Russian market are required to comply with the Russia RoHS law. This law falls in line with the Eurasian Economic Union Technical Regulation (TR EAWU 037/2016).
The Technical Regulation of the Eurasian Economic Union TR EAWU 037/2016 on restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment contains mandatory safety requirements. These requirements restrict the same hazardous substances as the EU RoHS Directive. The Russia RoHS law also maintains the same restriction limit of 1000 ppm & 100 ppm (Cadmium) as the Directive.
Companies placing electrical and electronic products on the market must comply to maintain their EAC mark on their product. Without compliance, their EAC mark is no longer valid and would require removal from the market.
