On September 8, 2020, CCIS-EXPERTISE informed its readers about recent amendments on the validity period of the State Registration Certificates for perfumes and cosmetic.

A Draft Decision of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission, which amends the Decision № 112 of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission dated July 9, 2019, has been presented for discussion.

The suggested amendment stipulates that the validity period of State Registration certificates issued before May 5, 2020, and replaced during their validity because of one of the reasons specified at the end of this article, i.e. without additional tests, shall be limited to May 5, 2023.

The full text of the amendment is presented below:

"To amend Paragraph b) of Section 1 of the Decision № 112 of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission dated 9 July 2019 as follows: “when replacing the documents specified in the first subparagraph of Paragraph b), in cases stipulated in Section 21.5 of the Rules for issuing State Registration certificates for products approved by the Decision No. 80 of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission dated June 30, 2017, such documents will be valid until May 5, 2023 inclusive.””

This amendment was introduced to prevent the release to the Eurasian market of perfumes and cosmetics products that do not comply with the requirements of Technical Regulation CU TR 009/2011.

It should be noted that the replacement of the State Registration certificate without carrying out additional tests is possible in the following cases:

1. Errors or misprints are detected in the State Registration certificate and/or the Appendix.
2. The manufacturer has changed the type of legal entity or registered office address.
3. The Applicant has changed the address of his principal place of business (if the addresses are different) (according to Article 166 of the Decision No. 44 of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission dated 18 April 2018 "On standard conformity assessment schemes")

The public discussion will continue until August 7, 2021.
