EAC marking

After certification of compliance with the requirements of the Technical Regulations, PPE can be up for sale with the EAC marking. It is a visual confirmation of the quality for a customer. It may also become a significant advantage for business partners and large wholesale customers. The labeling is shown both on the packaging and the product. The presence of the EAC sign indicates that the product is made of materials of good quality that fully meet the environmental requirements and does not have components that can cause injury or any other sort of health damage.

Requirements for foreign products and products of the Customs Union are the same, and the certification schemes also coincide.
