Speaking of implementation of EAC quality requirements, it is necessary to say that for each Technical Regulation of the Customs Union a transition period was established. Starting from 2019 almost all technical regulations came in force in Armenia. There are only two TR EAEU that still can be replaced by inner approval certificates (CoC) or Declarations (DoC) of Conformity according to the national standards. These technical regulations are TR EAEU "On the safety of motor road" (ТR EAEU 014/2011) that should be fully implemented in 20121 and TR EAEU "On safety for wheeled vehicles“ (TR EAEU 018/2011) in 2022.

National requirements as to for the quality of the exported goods are stipulated in Law of the Armenian Republic № 603-II “On technical Regulation”. The main governmental supervision body is National Institute of Standards at the Ministry of Economy of Armenian Republic.

  • measuring devices in terms of measuring accuracy;
  • radio-frequency means in terms of applicability of used frequency bands;
  • fire safety appliances and building materials.
