03 March 2014 E2S are pleased to announce the attainment of these new certifications for products from their fire & industrial, explosion proof and wide area disaster notification portfolios. The new TR CU Declaration of Conformity certifies compliance to the new, harmonised Technical Regulations of the Eurasian Economic Community (Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan) and fulfillment of safety requirements. The new TR CU Certificate of Conformity for the Customs Union for safety of equipment for use in explosive atmospheres is mandatory for any electrical equipment that is to be operated, or installed, in hazardous areas and potentially explosive atmospheres in these countries. The certification enables products to obtain clearance at the Russian and Customs Union borders. These certifications replace the GOST-R and Ex GOST-R national Russian certification system that is being gradually withdrawn.
For hazardous areas, the TR CU Certificate of Conformity covers the BEx and GNEx explosion and flame proof signals and the IS intrinsically safe ranges.
For fire & industrial applications the TR CU Declaration of Conformity is awarded for majority of the product ranges such as Sonora, AlertAlarm, AlertAlight, Spectra, Hootronic as well as many wide area disaster warning products and panel mount status lights.
The new certifications use the market circulation marking of the Customs Union (EAC and EAC Ex markings) which can be found on all the product labels supplied to these countries by E2S.
The certifications add to the company’s portfolio of worldwide approvals including ATEX, IECEx, UL, cULs, INMETRO and VDS which ensure compliance and acceptance and positions the company at the forefront of global supply of life saving signalling devices.
The details of all the certifications including downloads of the certificates can be found on their website at www.e2s.com.
