Certificate of Conformity of ТR CU 031/2012

Agricultural and forestry tractors, trailers and their components are subject to certification. For this purpose, tractors and trailers are classified into categories and types according to Annex 3 to the Technical Regulations.

If the manufacturer manufactures not only them, but also components for his assembly production, a test report issued by an accredited laboratory is required for the components listed in Annex 1. Testing of the vehicles themselves for the purpose of certification may only be commenced if a test report or certificate has been obtained for the components.

The applicant, i.e. the person in whose name the certificate is issued, can be a manufacturer, seller or representative of a foreign manufacturer registered in the territory of the EEU.

For products manufactured in series, the certificate is issued for 5 years. In the case of a batch (single copy) the period of validity of the document is not set, but it specifies the characteristic features of this batch, by which it can be identified.

Stages of the certification

  1. The certification expert and the manager who will lead your application will explain in detail how the service is to be provided.
  2. You will be given the documents that need to be collected in your particular situation (including the documents that are required for production evaluation, if it is part of the certification scheme).
  3. The expert will select product samples and organize their testing in an accredited laboratory.
  4. If serial products are being certified, the expert will check their production. It is necessary to make sure that the manufacturer has the necessary conditions to ensure the compliance of manufactured products with the requirements of technical regulations.

  6. If the certificate is issued for serial products, during the period of its validity it will be subjected to inspection at specified intervals. It is necessary to make sure that the manufactured products continue to meet the requirements, compliance with which was confirmed at certification.
