Questions and Answers webinar on Eurasia REACH: Recap and actions to become compliant
29th of October 2020
Placing chemical substances on the EAEU market?
The new technical regulation in EAEU (TR041) is expected to be postponed to the 30th of November 2022. Under this regulation, companies placing chemical products on the Eurasian Economic Union – Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia – are required to register chemical products that are placed on the EAEU market. A special full registration (e.g. Lead Registration) is foreseen for the new chemicals before those can be placed on the EAEU market on their own or as part of mixtures. Similar to the EU REACH, Non-EAEU companies can appoint a Nominated Representative in the EAEU for the purposes of compliance with the technical regulation requirements.
As part of Eurasia REACH regulation implementation plan, the EAEU member states will be forming their own national existing chemical substances inventories in order to eventually compile a common inventory during 2021. The notification period in Russia has ended on the 1st of August 2020 and the final national inventory of substances is still being compiled based on the submitted notifications and corrections requested by the authority. Substances listed in the final inventory will be regarded as existing chemicals, where chemical products containing such substances could benefit from much lighter registration requirements. In addition to the existing substances inventory, TR041 also foresees a process of the mixture inventory compilation. However, mixtures inventory will be formed during the mixture registration process estimated to start in 2027.
