Digital technical regulation within the EAEU
On August 14, 2021, the decision of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission No. 63 on the implementation of the project "Digital technical regulation within the Eurasian Economic Union" entered into force.
Services planned to be implemented
On the basis of the above decision of the EEC Council, the project passport and implementation roadmap were adopted. The project provides for the creation of a system including such services as:
- services for creating a uniform list of products subject to mandatory requirements within the EAEU countries
- services for the development of technical regulations of the EAEU and lists of standards for the regulations
- services of generating a set of data on forms of conformity assessment, mandatory requirements for products
Digitization of technical regulation processes
The key objective of the digital technical regulation project is the digitization of the processes of creating mandatory requirements for products, the development of technical regulations and lists of international and regional standards necessary for the application and implementation of the requirements of technical regulations, implementation of conformity assessment, proposals for the development of development programs (changes, revisions) of such standards, and also creating a uniform list of products for which uniform requirements apply.
Goals of digital regulation
As expected, the digitization of technical regulations is to lead to:
- accelerating the creation and marketing of new products that meet the requirements currently in force in the EAEU
- shortening the time and financial expenses incurred in the process of assessing the compliance of products with the requirements of the EAEU technical regulations
- shortening the time needed to develop EAEU technical regulations, lists of standards and other documents in the field of conformity assessment
The authors of the project estimate that within 2 years of the project implementation, the share of technical regulations in digital format will be at least 90%. A similar percentage is provided for the share of goods included in the resulting uniform list of products.
