User manuals for obtaining TR CU (EAC) certificate or declaration

The manual for the operation of equipment, instruments, machines and other things is a mandatory accompanying document that is required for structurally or technically complex, as well as potentially hazardous products. Without the presence of an operating manual for the specified products, the sale of these goods to the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union is not allowed. 

In this article, we'll answer some of the most frequently asked questions about manuals for electronic means and electrical devices:

- what the operating manual should contain;
- what language should the document be in;
- in what form it can be issued - electronic or printed;
- whether the manufacturer should be specified or not;

Certification for low-voltage equipment

The most common requests for manuals are received in relation to TR CU 004 "ON SAFETY OF LOW-VOLTAGE EQUIPMENT" (TR CU 004/2011) and TR CU 020 "ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY OF TECHNICAL MEANS" (TR CU 020/2011). These TR CU regulate the requirements for almost all electronic devices, household appliances that operate from the network and have a voltage of up to 50 Volts.
