Changes to the list of products which are subject to sanitary and epidemiological supervision in the customs territory of EAEU

By the decision of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Community of September 4, 2020, changes were introduced to the Unified list of products (goods) subject to state sanitary and epidemiological supervision at the border and in the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union, approved by the decision of the Customs Union Commission No. 299 of May 28, 2010. The introduced changes relate to chapters II and III. We discuss them in detail below.

Changes in Chapter II

Chapter II of the document in question concerns the list of products (goods) that are subject to state registration. The introduced amendment applies to the paragraph on salts and esters listed in the commodity nomenclature of the foreign economic activity of the Customs Union, which are not subject to state registration. By decision of the EAEU Commission the designations "2915 70" were replaced with "2915 70 000 0", the designations "2915 90" with "2915 90 000 0" and in the fifth paragraph the designation "2917 34 100 0, 2917 34 900 0" was replaced with "2917 34,000 0 ".

Changes in Chapter III

The changes also apply to Chapter III. The eighth paragraph has been replaced by the following in the definition: “second-hand products (goods)”. Thus, it replaced a longer, complicated definition, which contained information about the method of sale by dealerships and special-purpose stores.

Paragraph 10 has also gained new meaning. Instead of referring to Art. 363 paragraph. 4 of the Customs Code of the Customs Union, a more detailed definition was formulated: "products (goods) transported across the customs border of the Eurasian Economic Union as deliveries in accordance with the specific procedure and conditions of movement of deliveries across the customs border provided for in the Eurasian Economic Union Customs Code".

Small changes of great importance

Although the discussed changes concern details, they may be of great importance for producers and exporters whose activities are regulated by the above-mentioned document of the Eurasian Economic Community. The decision on changes shall come into force after 30 calendar days from the date of its official publication.
