Technical Regulations of the Customs Union “Electromagnetic Compatibility of Technical Devices” (TR CU 020/2011)

Since 25 February 2013, the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union “Electromagnetic Compatibility of Technical Means”; (TR CU 020/2011) have entered into force. We at EasyGOST Service take care of the certification of your products that fall within this scope.

Electrical devices often generate electromagnetic interference and thus interfere with the functioning of other devices. In addition, they can even be susceptible to such disturbances themselves. Before goods of this type can be supplied or sold, they must be tested for electromagnetic compatibility with the requirements of the TR CU 020/2011 regulations.
