    EAEU Technical Regulation Energy Requirements Postponed to 2022

    Earlier this year, the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), the international economic union and free trade zone made up of five membering countries, announced its new energy requirement and energy label will be postponed until 2022 to ensure a smooth transition.

    This Technical Regulation, which is the basis for the requirements for the energy efficiency of energy-consuming devices under TR EAEU 048/2019, will now be implemented as of September 1, 2022.

    This mandatory requirement will affect all organizations who manufacture and sell products in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia markets. These energy-consuming devices, as listed in Annex 1, include:

    • Air conditioners and electric fans
    • Asynchronous electric motors
    • External power supplies
    • Circulation and water pumps
    • Computers and servers
    • Directional and electric lamps, LEDs, and related equipment
    • Televisions and set-top boxes
    • Residential dishwashers, washing machines, and tumble dryers
    • Refrigeration appliances
    • Household and office electrical equipment
    • Fluorescent lamps without integrated ballast, high-intensity discharge lamps, and parts that operate such lamps
    • Vacuum cleaners

    In addition to submitting the proper technical documentation, reporting, user manuals and technical sheets, some manufacturers will also need to include the indication of the energy class, written in Russian, which is calculated according to this new regulation. This additional requirement is product dependent. The exact layout for this energy label will be defined by the EAEU in the coming months.

    Products must be evaluated according to the requirements laid out in TR EAEU 048/2019. However, an EAC Declaration of Conformity is mandatory in many cases, but the certification will remain a voluntary option for most — with the exception of:

    • Electric lamps
    • Fluorescent lamps without integrated ballast, high-intensity discharge lamps, and parts that operate such lamps
    • Directional lamps, LEDs, and related equipment
    • Computers and computer servers

    Manufacturers who fail to adhere to these Technical Requirements will be forced to withdraw their product from the market until they are able to prove compliance after September 1, 2021.

    Upon implementation, TR EAEU 048/2019 will replace other, current national requirements, however the EAEU will provide further clarification on the regulation by March of 2022.
