TR CU 018/2011 applies to vehicles (hereinafter – TC) that are in use in the territory of the EEU (regardless of the place of production) or which are planned to be released into circulation on the market of the Union, as well as their components (spare parts). The list of standards to meet the established requirements is approved by the Decision of the Board of the EEC No. 219 of 25.12.2018.

1. Vehicles of four categories:

  • L – motor vehicles (motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, etc.);
  • M – passenger vehicles with four or more wheels (cars, buses, trolleybuses, etc.)
  • N – trucks and their chassis (load capacity up to 3.5 tonnes, from 3.5 tonnes to 12 tonnes and over 12 tonnes)
  • O – (semi-)trailers to the vehicles of the above categories (up to 10 tonnes and over).

2. chassis;

3. components (parts) of vehicles, which affect their safety.

The general list of objects that are subject to TR CU 018/2011 is provided in Annex 1 to TR CU 018/2011. A detailed list (with TN VED codes) is established by Decision of the EEC Board No. 77 of 14.07.2015.

Paragraph 3 of Chapter I of the technical regulation specifies the CU that are an exception and do not fall under its scope.

Conformity assessment

For different objects TR CU 018/2011 establishes different forms of assessment. Annex 12 to TR CU 018/2011 specifies the documents that the applicant must collect according to each of them.

 ObjectsEvaluation formExecutorFeatures of the procedure
1.Vehicle and chassisType approvalCertification body (with the participation of a testing laboratory)They are subdivided into types according to Annex 11 to TR CU 018/2011. Chassis manufactured in the EAEC are tested for compliance with the requirements for their type:
● when they are released in circulation and (or) when they are transported to the place of further completion;
● if on the basis of the contract the responsibility for compliance with certain requirements of TR CU 018/2011 is shared between the manufacturers of the chassis and the vehicle.
2.Single vehicles to be put into circulationTechnical expertise of the design (tests and measurements may be required)Testing laboratoryOnly complete vehicles are tested
3.Vehicles in operationTechnical inspection, state control (supervision) over road safetyThe owner of a car, State Traffic Safety InspectorateThe scope of inspection and its procedure are established by the national legislation of the EEU member-states.
4.Operational vehicles, the design of which is amendedPreliminary technical expertise + safety check + technical inspectionTest lab, State Traffic Safety InspectorateCheck registered vehicles with modified constructional parameters or components. Exceptions are:
● Installed components that were originally designed for this vehicle and have already passed conformity assessment in its composition (this must be confirmed by documentation from the manufacturer);  
● Components specified in the operational documentation by the vehicle manufacturer.
5.Components (spare parts)Declaration or mandatory certification. Their purpose is to confirm that the components belonging to the declared type comply with the requirements specified in paragraph 20 of TR CU 018/2011.Certification body and (or) testing laboratoryComponents that are delivered to the customer with a delivery package are not subject to confirmation of conformity:
● components that are supplied to the assembly plant (unless the UN Regulation requires that they be confirmed separately);  
● components that have already been used;  
● reconditioned components (other than tyres)
Reconditioned components (other than treaded tires).

Our capabilities

We have a certification body and testing laboratory accredited to check the safety of motor vehicles and their components.

We are ready to provide you with the following services in accordance with TR CU 018/2011:

  • test the vehicle for the purpose of further issuance of SBCTS/OTS/OTTS;
  • conduct a technical design examination (if the design of the vehicle has been changed);
  • assess the components of the vehicle in the form of a declaration/certificate of conformity if they fall under the scope of this technical regulation.

If you, as a foreign company, do not have an official representative in the territory of the EEU, we are ready to carry out the procedure of conformity assessment on our behalf.

We will agree the layout of the product approval document with you in advance to avoid possible errors in it.

The service is provided on the basis of a contract for the function of a foreign manufacturer in terms of ensuring compliance of the supplied products with the requirements of the technical regulations of the Customs Union and in terms of liability for non-compliance of the supplied products with the requirements of the technical regulations of the Customs Union.
