Legislative framework.

Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 23, 2021 No. 2425 contains the entire detailed list of products that should be put on sale only with certification.

In case of non-compliance with the requirements, the enterprise will have to pay an administrative fine and close business activities for up to three months. And also, the authorized bodies have the right to withdraw all non-certified products.

Technical regulations and types of certification of pressure equipment.

For all types of pressure devices, the norms of one Technical Regulation apply – TR CU 032/2013.

To confirm the safety of products in accordance with the requirements of this document, a quality certificate or a declaration of conformity is issued. You can find out for which product which document needs to be issued in the detailed list of Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 23, 2021 No. 2425.

When issuing a quality certificate, the following schemes are considered:

1C – serial assessment with analysis of the state of production;

3C – evaluation of a sample from the batch;

4C – evaluation of a piece of equipment;

7C – serial evaluation of the main constituent elements with an analysis of the state of production.

Schemes for declaration:

1D – serial evaluation by the manufacturer;

2D – assessment of the batch by the manufacturer;

3D – serial assessment by the certification center;

4D – assessment of the batch by the certification center;

5D – evaluation of equipment after installation for commissioning.

Validity periods for pressure equipment certification are from one to five years. Some documents are issued indefinitely, for example, according to schemes 3C, 4C, 1D and 3D.

What is the difference between certificate and declaration?

The certificate of conformity and the declaration of conformity differ only in the appearance of the document and the responsible person.

That is, the certificate is filled in on a special form – this is done by the certification center. He also takes responsibility for the compliance of the information in the certificate with the requirements of the Technical Regulations.

And the manufacturer himself fills out the declaration of conformity on a regular sheet of A4 format, he is also responsible for the authenticity of the document.

Both documents have the same legal force, they also equally confirm the compliance of the safety and characteristics of the equipment with the requirements of the Technical Regulations.
