Field of application.

Technical regulations apply to machines and (or) equipment manufactured equipment issued for use inside the uniform customs territory of CU, and establishes sufficient minimum required safety requirements.

Technical regulations apply to machines and (or) equipment, including those used at hazardous industrial facilities (HIF).

Ensuring conformity with safety requirements.

Conformity of machines and (or) equipment to the technical regulations is ensured by fulfilling its requirements directly, or by fulfilling the requirements of interstate standards, application of which on a voluntary basis ensures compliance with TR requirements.

Fulfillment of requirements of standards on a voluntary basis represents the conformity of machines and (or) equipment with TR safety requirements.

Confirmation of conformity.

Evaluation of conformity with the requirements of these technical regulations is performed in the form of confirmation of conformity and in the form of state control (supervision).

Machines and (or) equipment being in operation, or manufactured for their manufacturers own needs, as well as components and spare parts for machines used for repair (maintenance) of machines and (or) equipment, are not subject to confirmation of conformity with the requirements of these technical regulations.

Confirmation of conformity.

Confirmation of conformity of machines and (or) equipment to TR requirements is performed in the form of:

  • Certification by an accredited certification body included in the Unified Register of certification bodies and testing laboratories (centres) of the Customs Union;
  • Declaring of conformity based on their own evidences, and (or) the ones obtained with participation of the certification body or an accredited testing laboratory (centre) included in the Unified Register of certification bodies and testing laboratories (centres) of the Customs Union.

Confirmation of TR CU 032/2013

Technical Regulations of Customs Union TR CU 032/2013 "On Safety of Equipment operating under excessive pressure", approved by the Eurasian Economic Commission Councils Decision No. 41 dated July 2, 2013 and put in force on February 1, 2014.

Certification body of NTP Truboprovod has been accredited for confirmation of conformity of equipment operating under excessive pressure to TR CU 032/2013.

Field of application

Technical regulations establishes unified requirements inside the Customs Union, mandatory for application and fulfilment of safety requirements to the equipment operating under excessive pressure, issued for operation inside CU for the first time.

TR CU 032/2013 covers the following types of equipment (operating parameters in accordance with i. 2, section I, TR CU 032/2013):

  • Vessels operating under excessive pressure;
  • Boilers with a capacity of more than 0.002 m3;
  • Pipelines with a maximum allowable working pressure of more than 0.05 MPa and nominal diameter of more than 25 mm;
  • Equipment components (assembly units) and appropriate accessories that withstand pressure impact;
  • Pipeline valves;
  • Indicating and safety equipment;
  • Pressure (altitude) chambers (except for single medical ones);
  • Safety instruments and devices.
  • Requirements for substantiation of safety for equipment

    From September 1, 2017, by Order of the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology No. 714-st dated July 18, 2017, an interstate standard GOST 33855-2016 “Equipment safety substantiation. Guidelines for preparation”; at that, the national standard GOST R 54122-2010 “On safety of machinery and equipment. Safety substantiation requirements” was abandoned.

    A new standard covers the equipment, for which in the technical regulations (TR) safety substantiation is provided.

    GOST 33855-2016 establishes:

    • Rules for preparation of safety substantiation for equipment used to confirm its conformity with TR requirements;
    • Rules for the development and presentation of a separate document "Safety Substantiation", which is drawn up, if technical documentation package does not fully prove (confirm) safety of the equipment.

    Term "Equipment safety substantiation" according to the new standard, has a new definition, as follows:

    • Technical documentation package;
    • or

    • Specially developed document used to confirm safety of equipment and conformity with TR requirements.

    Technical documentation package

    Package of safety substantiating documents includes:

    • Design documentation (drawings, data sheets, calculations, etc.);
    • Operating documentation;
    • Test certificates and (or) reports;
    • Analytical materials (analysis and (or) risk assessment, operating reliability analysis, etc.).

    Safety substantiation for vessels and apparatus operating under excessive pressure is confirmation of their strength, stability and tightness during the estimated service life by strength calculation and fulfilling a set of technical requirements related to it.

    Document "Substantiation of safety"

    In general, substantiation of safety shall have the following structure:

    Section 1. General description of equipment:

    Section 2. Main parameters and specifications of the equipment:

    • Parameters and specifications;
    • Completing equipment with components;
    • Images of equipment indicating overall, installation, connection or other dimensions.

    Section 3. Risk assessment (if possible):

    • Risk analysis, including:
      1. Hazard identification (hazardous events) during operation;
      2. Calculation of risk degree for each hazard or hazardous event;
    • Comparison of the calculation risk value with the allowable one (if specified).

    Section 4. Evidences of equipment conformity to TR requirements:

    • Description of the design solutions adopted by the developer, ensuring the equipment safety during commissioning, operation and disposal, with indication, if necessary, of their conformity with standards;
