What are EMC, LVD, and ROHS?

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility): This refers to a device’s ability to function without generating electromagnetic interference that could disrupt other devices. In simpler terms, it's about being a good electromagnetic neighbor.

LVD (Low Voltage Directive): If you're playing with electrical devices, safety is non-negotiable. LVD ensures that your electronic products operate within specific voltage limits to safeguard the user against risks like electric shocks.

ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances): The planet is our home, and ROHS assures that your products don't harm the environment by restricting the use of certain hazardous materials in electronic devices and equipment.

Why Is Certification Important?

Let’s face it: Your products aren't just pieces of metal and plastic. They are promises of quality, safety, and environmental responsibility. Certification isn’t just a piece of paper; it’s a badge of credibility, a seal of approval that tells the world that your products are ready for the global stage. Furthermore, it's often legally required for market access. Miss out on these certifications, and you're essentially closing doors to international opportunities.

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility)

Compliance here ensures your products get a seat at the global table, but the rules can vary. Here’s a quick look at country-specific requirements:

  • Brazil: INMETRO Certification is a must.
  • South Africa: NRCS sets the tone for EMC compliance.
  • Australia: RCM marking is the way to go.
  • South Korea: KCC marking is mandatory.
  • Russia & CIS Countries: EAC marking stands as your ticket to the market.  

LVD (Low Voltage Directive)

Safety isn’t just a standard; it's a universal language. However, the dialects change from country to country

  • Brazil: INMETRO also manages LVD aspects.
  • South Africa: Your go-to here is SABS.
  • Australia: Reliance on AS/NZS standards is critical.
  • South Korea: KC marking is your safety passport.
  • Russia & CIS Countries: GOST-R and EAC certifications apply.
  • We've got your back, helping you to not only meet but exceed these global safety standards.

ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)

Being environmentally responsible is not an option, but a necessity. Here’s a glimpse of how this pans out across our specialized countries:

  • Brazil: Check compliance with ABNT NBR standards.
  • South Africa: SANS 1-1-1 is your guiding light.
  • Australia: RoHS compliant labeling is imperative.
  • South Korea: KC certification has provisions for hazardous substances.
  • Russia & CIS Countries: GOST-R certificate often includes RoHS evaluation.

List of Main Product Categories for Certification

The spectrum of products requiring EMC, LVD, and ROHS certifications is wide, yet targeted. The following categories are the most commonly certified:

  1. Consumer Electronics: Smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc.
  2. Industrial Machinery: Generators, pumps, conveyor systems, etc.
  3. Medical Devices: MRI machines, ECG monitors, etc.
  4. Automotive Electronics: GPS systems, electric car components, etc.
  5. Telecommunications Equipment: Routers, switches, antennas, etc.
  6. Household Appliances: Washing machines, refrigerators, etc.
  7. How to Determine if Your Product Requires Certification?

If your product falls under any of the categories above, it likely requires certification. Additionally, if your product interacts with electricity or emits any form of radiation (including heat and sound), it generally needs to be certified. When in doubt, consult with our experts to identify the specific certifications relevant to your product.

Important information, legislative agenda


Is the local representative company required for handling the EAC certification?
In accordance with the Customs Union legislation, a foreign manufacturer must have a Local representative company (an Applicant) on the territory of the Customs Union (CU) to issue the certificate/declaration. This means that an Applicant for you can be your customer, distributor or official representative company in CU. WorldWideBridge LLC will be mentioned on certificate/declaration as a local representative. 
What does Annual maintenance inspection assume?
Each serially producing product that requires Certificate of conformity is subjected to Annual Maintenance Inspection (or so-called Inspection control) in case of applying for more than 1-year certificate. It assumes that certification body which issued the CoC needs to confirm that the product is still produced at the same quality. It can be done through the re-testing or reviewing of Quality Management System documents. In some cases, the certification body can initiate a production site audits during AMI.
What does the cost of certification services depend on? Is there any price list?
The cost of certification services depends on the type of the required approval document and technical characteristics of the product itself that influences the scope of tests that are to be conducted. We have no price-list because used to work with a wide range of certification bodies, testing laboratories, and other specialized state institutions (Federal Security Service (FSS) licensing center, Radiofrequency center (RFC), Rostekhnadzor, Roszdravnadzor, etc.)And this means that the price can vary depending on product specification and certain certification body's pricing policy. If we are talking about the product specification, then the cost can be affected by the number of models, differences in applied models, the number of communication standards used (for radio products), the number of declared protective properties (for PPE), metrology characteristics ( for measuring devices) and so on. Each product is unique, each request must be carefully calculated to determine the type of document, the amount of testing, the most optimal certification scheme, the number of test reports, etc. Also, it is important to note that CU certification bodies have a certain accreditation (product range they can approve). So, in case of big projects that include different products for certification we should apply to several different authorities. Each of those has individual pricing policies due to their testing facilities. This fact can significantly affect the pricing and process. Our goal is to provide accurate consulting services in a specific case. Therefore, we are happy to evaluate the client's application, which contains the name and description of the product and the HS code (Customs code).
What is the EAC mark and when should it be applied?
EAC mark is an approval sign for products that are needed to be imported to the Customs Union (CU). This mark gives the opportunity to enter the markets of Russia, Belarus, Kazakstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, distribute products throughout the entire territory of these countries, and extend your audience to almost 200 millions of people. EAC mark can be obtained only after the certification procedure according to the Technical Regulations of the Customs union is finished. ЕАС abbreviation stands for “Eurasian Conformity”. The unified mark is applied to each unit of production, packaging or accompanying documentation. The image of the unified mark has to be one colour and contrast with the surface colour on which it is applied. The place of application of the unified mark on the product, packaging and documentation is established in technical regulations of the Customs union.
Can the production site audit be replaced by CIG report?
The production site audit can be required in case the product requires the Certificate of conformity to the Technical Regulation of the Customs union. A lot of our clients are interested whether the production audit can be replaced by CIG report that use to be issued by most European producers. Customs union approval procedure does not assume replacing of the audit by providing CIG report because the expert from certification authority is obliged to check the QMS personally according to our law.
How is determine whether the Declaration of conformity or Certificate of conformity is required?
The necessary form of the approval document depends on the product description and HS code (Customs code). In each technical regulations of the Customs union, there is the List which determines whether Certificate of conformity or Declaration of conformity is required for certain product according to its HS Code and application field. In some cases, technical parameters must be also taken into consideration (for pressure equipment, PPE products, etc.).
What is required to import the samples for tests?
The samples can be imported for test only after all the preparations. Firstly, we should prepare the application for the certification and confirm it with the client.  On the second stage, the client s preparing the invoice for samples delivery that is needed to be sent to us for the check.  When the samples arrived at the customs clearance office the receiver prepare all the necessary documents confirming the import purpose and pay all the required fees to the government.  Import fees depend on the announced product price according to the shipping invoice. Products that are valued less than 200 EUR are free from such fees.  The final stage assumes the registration of the cargo declaration that confirms that the samples passed the customs clearance and can be used on for certification.
How can the EAC approval documents be prolonged after the expiration date?
Customs union certification system does not assume the prolongation procedure. This means that the certification process must be repeated including tests, production site audit if required. After all the procedures are done you will receive a new approval document. 
Is there an open register where the issued EAC approval document can be checked?
Almost all approval documents are to be registered in the open registers. Here you can refer to some of them: the Registered EAC Certificates of Conformity ,  the Registered EAC Declarations of Conformity , the registered State Registration Certificates , FFS Notifications (encrypted means) register.  If you need additional information please apply to [email protected]
