IECEE CB Scheme – a tool to ensure products access to the Russian market
National statutory acts governing participation in IECEE 1. Decree No 963-r of the Government of the Russian Federation dated July 17, 2001 entrusting Gosstandart of Russia with participation in IECEE. 2.Decree No 2236-R of the USSR Council of Ministers dated October 24, 1985 for joining IECEE. 3.Decree No 526-r of the Government of the Russian Federation dated April 17, 2006 entrusting the Federal Agency on Technical Regulation and Metrology with responsibility of ensuring participation of the Russian Federation in IECEE.

Level of harmonization of national standards with IEC Standards average level of harmonization of low voltage standards - 35% level of harmonization of low voltage standards belonging to IECEE categories - over 60%
New Approach Low Voltage Directive 72/23/EEC Low Voltage Directive Guidelines – official publication of the European Commission IECEE Rules and Procedures ( Russia participates in IECEE since 1985: Decree No 2236-R of the USSR Council of Ministers dated October 24, 1985; Decree No 526-R of the Government of the Russian Federation dated April 17, 2006 Regulatory base – about 300 IEC standards 3 The concept of the Low Voltage Technical Regulation is based on the following international documents:
Requirements relating to all technical regulation items Mandatory safety requirements for all types of low voltage equipment 1. The low voltage equipment design must rule out electrical shock in normal operation All moving parts of low voltage equipment which may be a potential cause of injuries must be located, enclosed and safeguarded to ensure the required protection of users from possible injuries To meet the requirements of this clause one may voluntarily use national standards from the list published in the organ of the federal body for technical regulation and in the public information system
Correlation between mandatory safety requirements included in the Low Voltage Technical Regulation and national standards as an evidentiary base for attestation Technical regulations clauses containing requirements Embedded (reference) standards over 2000 National standards 390 (harmonization level – 75%

Attestation For attestation purposes hazard ranking of low voltage equipment is used. To attribute low voltage equipment to one of hazard groups the following criteria apply: - amount of safety requirements to be met to ensure safety of low voltage equipment; -number of units of a given type of low voltage equipment put in operation; - minimum qualification level of persons allowed to use this low voltage equipment; - applicability of other forms of conformity assessment as specified in the Federal Law on Technical Regulation. Conformity assessment procedures meeting the criteria valid for each particular product are based on applicable statistics obtained during monitoring of mandatory attestation results.
