EEU (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan)
The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has commenced work on creating a system that will allow the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) to exchange information on measures taken to prevent or limit the sale or use of products that pose a serious risk to the health and safety of consumers.
As of 1 October 2018, the amendments to the EAEU Technical Regulation on the Safety of Products for Children and Adolescents entered into force.
The amendments clarified the definition of a “type sample”. The previous version of the TR required one separate type sample for each age group, even though the products were made by one manufacturer from the same materials and according to the same technical documentation.
As of 18 July 2018, a revised regulation on conformity assessment modules (applied to certification, declaration and product registration) entered into force in the EAEU. The conformity assessment modules are to be applied by manufacturers, importers and persons authorised by manufacturers in order demonstrate product conformity with the requirements imposed by EAEU Technical Regulations.
