EAC Marking:

According to the EAC Customs Union certification mark, which became effective in 2013, all goods imported and sold within the Eurasian territory must undergo compulsory certification. During the process, products are evaluated to ensure conformity with technical regulations, and if they meet the requirements, they are marked with the EAC symbol on the packaging.
