What will change in the documentation?

The set of documents for the draft technical regulations has been supplemented with a draft list of products subject to mandatory assessment of compliance with the requirements of the TR EAEU technical regulations, with regard to which, in the case of placing under customs procedures, compliance with the provisions of the technical regulations is confirmed. In practice, such a list is created as needed for each document, but only now has it been included in the procedure of developing the regulations.

Clarifications about the schedule

The main terms of the procedures for the development, adoption, amendment and cancellation of the TR EAEU remain unchanged. However, clarifications have been made regarding the timing of the procedures. It has been specified that the finalization of a given project may not take more than 25 working days. This also applies to the rules for adopting technical regulations. The new edition states that the decision on the adopted technical regulations TR EAEU regarding its entry into force and transitional provisions is made by the Management Board of the EAEU not later than 3 months before the date of entry into force.

It was established that the decision to adopt the technical regulations of the TR EAEU must obligatorily specify the following deadlines:

  • validity of previously adopted documents regarding the assessment of the conformity of products with the mandatory requirements, after which the issuance or acceptance of such documents is not allowed

  • authorization of production and admission to trading in the territories of the EEU member states of products with or without "old" permits.
