According to a decision of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) simplified requirements for the marking of products with the EAC sign have been introduced and are in force until September 1, 2023. The document stipulates that it would be possible to apply the EAC mark on products after they are imported, i.e. after customs procedures are completed.
This also applies to putting information such as composition, shelf life, manufacturer, etc. on the label.
Important! The marking must be applied to the products prior to their sale to the consumer.
During the established transitional period, the governments of the EAEU Member States may set forward clarifications and peculiarities of the application of the decision of the EEC Council No. 130 of November 12, 2021, which concerns the definition of procedures and cases for submission of conformity assessment documents (information about such documents) to customs authorities when products are placed under customs procedures.
We remind you that the requirements stipulated on the national level regarding the import of products subject to mandatory conformity assessment in the EAEU do not exclude the mandatory conformity assessment procedures with the requirements of the EAEU technical regulations.
Simplifying the labelling rules is one of the measures adopted by the EAEU authorities to increase the economic stability of the EAEU Member States, including the macroeconomic stability (according to Decree No. 12 of the EEC Council of March 17, 2022). The official publication of the document is pending.
