A public debate on changes into the program of elaboration (revision) of the standards required to ensure compliance with the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union "On the safety of perfumes and cosmetic products" (TR CU 009/2011) began on January 10, 2017.

It is proposed to expand the program of elaboration (revision) by 18 new items, including the elaboration of national interstate standards based on ISO standards.

The new standards will establish requirements for:

  • microbiology;
  • identification and criteria for natural and organic cosmetics;
  • storage conditions for essential oils;
  • the nomenclature of essential oils;
  • labeling and marking rules for essential oil containers, etc. 

The program is designed for the next 3 years: from 2017 to 2019.

The parties responsible for various standards will be the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus. The public debate on the document will last until January 30, 2017.

The program was approved by the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission No. 237 of November 27, 2012.
