WWbridge LLC can act as your applicant for EAC certification since our company is based and registered in Russia. 

There are several advantages of choosing us as your applicant instead of distributors.

If you distributor acts as an applicant for EAC certification, it means that EAC CoC/DoC belongs to him and he has the rights to deny the usage of the approvals to other distributors. If you have several distributors in the CU market, it makes competition between them troubles to you as the manufacturer. Making certification by yourselves gives you a possibility to manage your EAC certification and the rights to use approvals for each distributor or customer.

Our company is an independent party,it means that we do not compete with distributors. Being an applicant for EAC DoCs and CoCs, we can give Power of Attorney to your customers and distributors that empowers them to use approvals. Power of Attorney is a document that enables your Russian importers or distributors to use EAC DoC or CoC.
