TRCU is the abbreviation term of “Technical Regulation of Customs Union”. With the foundation of “EACU, Eurasian Customs Union” in 2010, signed by Russia, Kazakhstan, and Belarus, and with the establishment of “EEU, Eurasian Economic Union” in 2015, unified conformity assessment procedure was introduced to its serving member states. Currently, with its 5 member states, Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, and Armenia of EEU approved to adopt unified code of Technical Regulation and agreed to coordinate efforts to terminate national norms after its new regional certification procedure.

Introduction of TRCU directly affected all member states. Aims for single duty customs tariff, and single economic space throughout the member states eliminated inconveniency of obtaining each national (regional) GOST certificates for importers/exporters and exempted custom duties/taxes within the union.

TRCU certification procedures follow consolidated informative assessment code to validate products’ compliance to Customs Union requirements. EAC mark on certificates refers to Eurasian Conformity, and the mark can be used for products certified under TRCU regulation. TRCU is the official regulation approved by the Union, supporting the conformity assessments within member states.

On the other hand, items not yet been included in unified TRCU lists may still need GOST certificates in accordance with each relative state. Therefore, to receive precise and up-to-date information on your products’ certification, consultation with experts is necessary.
