Certification of bags
For production and sale of goods on the territory of the Russian Federation and the EAEU, entrepreneurs are required to obtain a declaration or certificate for bags, knapsacks, briefcases, purses and suitcases. This is necessary to confirm the compliance of goods with the standards established by the technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
According to the established requirements, for all types of bags, briefcases, knapsacks, purses and suitcases, a mandatory TR CU declaration is required. In addition, the entrepreneur has the right to conduct voluntary certification of his products, which will serve as an additional confirmation of its quality.
Confirmation of the quality of goods throughout the EAEU is carried out in accordance with the requirements of technical regulations (TR CU). All bags, backpacks, briefcases, suitcases and handbags are subject to two TR CU: 017/2011 and 007/2011.
All types of bags, briefcases, knapsacks, backpacks, purses and suitcases are subject to TR CU 017/2011, which regulates the requirements for all products belonging to the category of light industry. This includes leather, leatherette, textiles, knitwear, felt, synthetic fabrics and non-woven materials.
Bags, satchels and backpacks intended for children of school age, regardless of the material from which they are made, are subject to TR CU 007/2011, which establishes safety requirements for all children’s products.
This means that all types of bags intended for the adult population must be assessed only according to TR CU 017/2011. School bags, backpacks and any other children’s bags are tested immediately according to two technical regulations – TR CU 017/2011 and TR CU 007/2011.
Why do you need EAC declaration of conformity for bags.
The Declaration of Conformity is the main document confirming the quality of bags on the territory of the EAEU. All bags that are produced or sold on the territory of the EAEU are subject to mandatory declaration in accordance with the requirements of the TR CU. This requirement is established in Article 11 of TR CU 017/2011 and Article 12 of TR CU 007/2011.
The production, import and sale of bags without a declaration is illegal. For non-compliance with the requirements of the law, an entrepreneur can receive a large monetary fine. It is also possible confiscation of existing goods and a ban on further activities.
