The EAC Certificate is the quality conformity certificate required for exports to the Eurasian Customs Union countries to pass through the customs gates. It is the name given to the official certificate of conformity of 5 countries formed by Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia. Eurasian countries are also called Customs Union certificate. Instead of the EAC Certificate or EAC Certificate, an EAC Declaration can be obtained according to the product type. The EAC Certificate can be obtained on a batch basis or for a period of 1-3-5 years.
In 1992, the government of the Russian Federation enacted a law to "protect consumer rights" and required that certain products be produced in accordance with certain standards in order to enter the markets of the country. It carried out a continuously renewed procedure under the headings of "Quality and quality standards" on public health and epidemiological safety. The Federal Law on “Technical Regulation” dated 27.12.2002 was adopted and a strict prohibition was imposed on the products of companies that do not have certificates.

The Customs Union Declaration of Conformity has the same legal effect as the EAC Certificate. The recipient of the declaration can only be a legal person within the boundaries of an EAC. The recipient companies mentioned in the declaration must be responsible for the quality of the products within the EAC and must accept requests, complaints and applications regarding the quality of the product. According to the EAC technical regulations, a declaration of conformity states that the registered organization in the Customs Union region will take responsibility for the product after the product is put on the market. Each declaration of conformity issued within the Customs Union must be registered with the approval body. The EAC Statement is issued for a maximum period of 5 years.
