New standards for perfumes and cosmetics

On December 28, 2020, the decision of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission No. 177 taken on December 22, 2020 was officially published, approving the update of the list of international standards for the technical regulation TR CU 009/2011 "On the safety of perfumes and cosmetics". The updated list will replace the previous one, which entered into force at the same time as the TR CU 009/2011 regulations, i.e. in September 2011.

Incorporation of 184 international standards

The list includes 184 international standards harmonized with the standards of the ISO and EN series. They apply on a voluntary basis. After the implementation of international standards, only those national standards harmonized with ISO which relate to the management systems of STB ISO 9001-2015, ST RK ISO 9001-2016 and similar are still in force.

GOST 32048-2013 will be valid until 2022

The standards from the previous edition of the list, which were not included in the updated list, cease to apply from the new year. However, an exception was made for one of the standards, namely the GOST 32048-2013 standard for perfumery and cosmetic production. According to the provisions of the document, it will be in force longer, i.e. until January 2022.

56 standards in the field of research methods

The new edition of the document contains 56 items describing the research method. Some of the GOST standards are also intended to be used during state control over compliance with the standards of the technical regulation TR CU 009/2011. In addition, from July 1, 2021, two dedicated standards will be introduced, dedicated specifically to these purposes. We are talking about the GOST EN 16956-2020 and GOST ISO / TR 18818-2020 standards.

8 GOST ISO standards for microbiology with a limited period of use

The period of application of some standards was also limited by the documents until January 1, 2022. It concerns 8 GOST ISO standards in the field of microbiological testing, which cover:

  • detection of Candida albicans yeast

  • general requirements for microbiological control

  • detection and enumeration of mesophilic aerobic microorganisms

  • detection of Escherichia coli bacteria

  • detection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa blue oil bacteria

  • detection of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria

  • calculations of yeast and mold content

  • detection of specific and non-specific microorganisms.

It should be noted that the discussed list of standards already includes updated microbiological testing methods. After updating the document, they apply from January 27, 2021.
