A letter issued by the Russian environmental protection authority (RosPrirodNadzor) No. AC-10-02-36/13739 dated 28 June 2017, explains that it is the trademark owner who is responsible for compliance with the recycling targets or for paying the environmental charge in relation to products and packaging they have placed on the Russian market.
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology has drafted amendments to the Law on Industrial and Consumer Wates No. 89-FZ. The amendments would clarify that manufacturers and importers of product components (rather than finished products) or any materials that are to be used for manufacturing other goods will not have to comply with any recycling targets within the extended producer responsibility (EPR) concept.
Draft law that would amend the Law on Consumer Protection and the Law on Sanitary and Epidemiological Welfare of the Population has been proposed by the Government of the Russian Federation. According to the proposed amendments the market surveillance authority (RosPotrebNadzor) will be allowed to make test purchases as a part of market surveillance activities with the purpose of checking compliance with the applicable sanitary and epidemiological requirements.
As of 10 December 2017, product manufacturers (and not suppliers, as is currently the case) are required to declare compliance of their products and it is the manufacturers, rather than suppliers, who will be responsible for compliance of their products with all applicable statutory requirements and for the accuracy of all declared product properties.
As of 1 January 2018, manufacturers and importers of certain products and product categories are no longer required to obtain conformity certificates for such products.
Decree No. 855 of 17 July 2017 amended the list of products subject to compulsory certification (adopted by Decree No. 989 of 1 December 2009).
The Eurasian Economic Commission has published, on 8 August 2017, a draft agreement that would establish the legal framework for the common system of labelling products with control (identification) signs.
If the agreement is adopted, it would put in place a system where certain products will be marked with an “identification means” or a “material carrier” which will be used for product identification purposes.
