Certification of blankets and pillows

Blankets and pillows are accessories for sleep, so the quality of these products must be strictly checked for compliance with standards established by technical regulations. In order to avoid low-quality products sold in the EAEU, mandatory certification is provided for this category of goods.

Regulatory framework.

Blankets and pillows belong to the category of light industry goods. Materials such as cotton, silk, wool, down, feather, synthetic winterizer, holofiber and others are used in their production.

To assess the quality of this type of product, there are two main technical regulations (TR CU) in the EAEU:

1. TR CU 017/2011 – establishes requirements for light industry products. This TR CU tests blankets and pillows intended for adults.

2. TR CU 007/2017 – contains requirements for all children’s products, including bedding.

Pillows and blankets connected to the mains (massage, heated) are also evaluated according to other technical regulations:

TR CU 004/2011 – contains safety requirements for low-voltage devices;

TR CU 020/2011 – establishes requirements for the electromagnetic compatibility of electrical devices;

TR CU 037/2011 – regulates the content of hazardous substances.

Is certification for blankets and pillows mandatory?

According to requirements of technical regulations, pillows and blankets for adults and children are subject to mandatory declaration. Each entrepreneur who manufactures or sells these products on the territory of the EAEU is required to have a permit. Optionally, you can issue a voluntary certificate for pillows and blankets. Failure to comply with requirements of the law leads the entrepreneur to administrative responsibility and a large fine.

Procedure and terms of registration.

You can issue a declaration and a certificate for blankets and pillows both for serial production or import, as well as for individual consignments of goods. The validity of declaration is 1 – 5 years, the certificate is valid up to 3 years. Registration of compliance documents takes maximum 2-3 weeks.
