The Eurasian Conformity mark (EAC, Russian: ÐÐ²ÑÐ°Ð·Ð¸Ð¹ÑÐºÐ¾Ðµ ÑÐ¾Ð¾ÑÐ²ÐµÑÑÑÐ²Ð¸Ðµ (ÐÐÐ¡)) is a certification mark to indicate products that conform to all technical regulations of the Eurasian Customs Union.

The new Customs Code should replace the existing national certification rules such as Russian GOST-R, TR or Kazakh GOST-K standards by the uniform technical regulations and technical guidelines of the Customs Union.
Products, which thus meet the requirements of the technical regulations of the Customs Union or the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) (consisting of Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan), are marked with the EAC mark.
