Technical Regulation TR CU 041/2017 comes into force on June 2, 2021.
The new technical regulation applies to all chemical substances and replaces national regulations.
A number of measures have been developed to prepare industry for the entry into force of the technical regulation – such as the inventory of the chemical substances.
Inventory is the first step in establishing of the national part of the Register of chemicals substances and mixtures of the Union.
Information from the inventory is then entered in the national part of the Register. If a chemical substance is not listed in the register, it is considered a new substance and requires notification.
All chemicals, either separate substances or as part of the mixtures must be inventoried. In the case of mixtures, all constituents whose concentration is more than 0.1 percent by weight are taken into account.
The inventory of chemical substances is voluntary. The company may submit information about chemicals to be included in the register, thereby declaring “existing” of the chemicals in the customs territory of the Union. After the entry into force of TR EAEU 041/2017, all chemicals, which are not listed in the register, are considered as "new" and must be notified before they can be placed on the market. Notification is a comprehensive study of dangerous properties and an analysis of the risks to human health and the environment. After that a chemical safety report is issued.
For the chemical inventory only minimum information on chemicals is required. It is also not necessary to prove that the substance is already on the Union market. For companies that for some reason have not participated in the inventory and have determined after the entry into force of EAEU TR 041/2017 that their substances are not listed in the register (and are therefore labeled as new chemicals), can until June,2 2023 have the substances entered in the register without notification. However, proof is required that the chemical substance had already been placed on the Union market before TR EAEU 041/2017 came into force. Supply contracts or waybills can serve as evidence.
