Scope of application

The CU NR 020/2011 applies to the technical equipment released into circulation within the common customs territory of the EAEU and can cause electromagnetic interference and (or) the operational quality of which depends on external electromagnetic interference.

The CU TR 020/2011 objects are as follows:

  • Household equipment:
    • for cooking and storing food;
    • for cleaning;
    • for hygiene;
    • for hair, nails and skin care;

  • electro musical instruments.

The CU TR 020/2011 does not apply tothe equipment:

  • which is used as an internal part of other equipment by its manufacturer and is not designed for autonomous use;
  • which is passive with regard to electromagnetic compatibility;
  • which is not included in the Common list of products that are subject to mandatory requirements in the Customs Union adopted by the Commission of the Customs Union


Component – a structurally complete part of technical equipment designed to be integrated into the apparatus by consumer (user);

Technical equipment – any electrical, electronic or radio-electronic product, as well as any product containing electrical and (or) electronic components that may be categorized as: a component unit, an apparatus and an installation;

Electromagnetic compatibility – the ability of technical equipment to operate with given quality in a given electromagnetic environment and not to cause harmful electromagnetic interference with other technical equipment;

Electromagnetic interference – an electromagnetic phenomenon or a process that reduces or may reduce the operational quality of technical equipment.

Technical equipment, passive with regard to electromagnetic compatibility – technical equipment that by virtue of its design and functionality, if used without additional protections against electromagnetic interference, such as screening or filtering, is unable to create electromagnetic interference that disturb the operation of communications devices and other technical equipment as intended, and is able to operate without degradation when exposed to electromagnetic interference, provided that electromagnetic environment conforms to this technical equipment operational documents

Confirmation of conformity

The technical equipment should undergo the procedure of confirmation of conformity in the forms of certification or declaration (Certificate of Conformity, Declaration of Conformity)
