Confirmation of the conformity of an elevator and elevator safety devices, as indicated in Appendix 2 to TR CU 011/2011, to the requirements of the present technical regulations is made in the form of a compulsory certification prior to their release into circulation on the territory of the Customs Union member states.

Certification of an elevator and elevator safety devices is made in the following sequence:

— Certification of an elevator and elevator safety devices, indicated in the Appendix 2 to TR CU 011/2011, is performed by a certification agency, accredited in accordance with the established procedure (hereinafter referred to as the Certification agency), on the basis of a contract with an applicant;
— compulsory certification of an elevator and elevator safety devices, designed for mass production, is made as per figure 3c (for a batch manufactured all at the same time) and per figure 4c (for a one-off manufacture), indicated in Appendix 3 to TR CU 011/2011;
— for compulsory certification, an applicant files an application for certification which is to include the following information:
— name and address of the applicant;
— name and address of the manufacturer;
— information that allows identifying the subject for certification;
— information on the location for performing tests on the subject for certification;
— information on standards used on a voluntary basis for ensuring compliance of the elevator and elevator safety devices with the requirements of the present technical regulation;
— the application for certification should be accompanied by documents proving compliance with the requirements of the present technical regulations:

  1. a) for elevator certification:
    — technical description;
    — operation manual (instructions);
    — electrical schematic diagram with a list of components;
    —  hydraulic diagram with a list of components for a hydraulically driven elevator;
    — test and measurement protocols, risk assessment protocols, made by the manufacturer or on its behalf (if any);
    — copies of certificates of conformity with technical regulations or, in cases established by the present technical regulations, test and measurement protocols,
    — copy of a quality management system certificate (if any), issued by a body accredited within the territory of a Customs Union member state;
  2. b) for certification of an elevator safety device:
    —  technical documentation (description, drawings, pictures);
    — copy of a quality management system certificate (if any), issued by a body accredited within the territory of a Customs Union member state;
    — when certifying an elevator, an applicant should provide for tests an assembled elevator of a one-off manufacture, a standard sample of a batch manufactured simultaneously or a standard sample of the elevator dimension range of mass production, and those documents indicated above
    — when certifying elevator safety devices as indicated in Appendix 2 TR CU 011/2011, shall be provided by the applicant to the certification agency for tests within the territory of the Custom Union member states:
    — a safety device of a one-off manufacture, a standard sample of a safety device of a batch manufactured simultaneously or a standard sample of the elevator dimension range of mass production;
    — component parts required for tests of the safety device being certified;
    — documents, as indicated above.
    Elevator safety devices produced by an elevator manufacturer which are used for the completing of elevators of its own production and supplied as spare parts for the replacement of identical elevator safety devices of elevators it has manufactured are not subject to compulsory certification. The test procedure for such elevator safety devices is established in standards from the list approved by the Customs Union Commission.
    Results of such tests are drawn up in protocols. Copies of protocols should be provided during the elevator certification;
