The conformity assessment process
The conformity assessment with the requirements of the technical regulation TR EAEU 041/2017 On safety of chemicals is carried out in the form of state registration either as a notification or as a permit. The permit procedure is applied to novel and potentially hazardous chemicals. Otherwise, the simple notification will suffice.
An SDS (Safety Data Sheet) must be issued by the manufacturer in order to place chemical products on the EAEU market.
The products declared according to TR EAEU 041/2017 must be marked with the EAC marking before launch. The label shall be attached to each package and (or) label. The marking must take place in such a way that it is easily recognizable and readable throughout the period of use.
Validity period of the conformity assessment
The notification is valid for the entire period of use; the permit is valid for a maimum of 5 years.
