Cosmetics, make-up, perfumes and other beauty products subject to EAC Declaration. This means that all products for hair care such as shampoo, conditioner, hair spray or gel, decorative cosmetics such as lipstick, nail polish or mascara, body care like shower gel, bath additive or body lotions, facial care such as creams, masks or peels, deodorants and perfumes need a conformity assessment, before they can be imported into Russia or the EAEU. The products must demonstrate their conformity with the technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union. The technical regulation TR CU 009/2011 On safety of perfume and toiletrie products consists of special requirements for the cosmetics.

According to the technical regulation TR CU 009/2011 there are 2 forms of conformity assessment: EAC Declaration and state registration.

EAC Declaration

The EAC declaration is a manufacturer's declaration that the products meet the minimum requirements of the technical regulation of the Eurasian Economic Union. The declaration is carried out by the manufacturer himself. The EAC Declaration becomes legally binding after its registration by a notified body in the EAEU.

The registration of the EAC Declaration may only be carried out by a company established in the territory of the EAEU. Therefore an authorized representative within the EAEU is required. If you need an authorized representative, we will be pleased to offer you a suitable company that takes over this function.

State registration

The conformity assessment of the products listed in Annex 12 occurs in the form of state registration. The state registration acknowledges the conformity assessment of the products with the sanitary-hygienic regulations of the EAEU.

The notified bodies accredited by Rosstandart or Rospotrebnadzor are responsible for issuing certificates of state registration. The registration procedure includes both an analysis of the manufacturer's documents, as well as laboratory tests and, in some cases, an inspection of the production. All certificates of state registration are entered in a special register and kept there.

The products that are subject to state registration:

  • tanning creams
  • products for skin whitening
  • compounds for permanent make-up
  • perfumery and cosmetic products for intimate care
  • cosmetics for children
  • peeling
  • depilatory
  • hair lighteners
  • perfumery and cosmetic products for permanent waves and hair straightening
  • perfumery and cosmetic products with nanoparticles
  • fluorinated oral hygiene products with a mass fraction of fluorides exceeding 0.15%
  • teeth whitening agents containing hydrogen peroxide, carbamide peroxide, zinc peroxide (hydrogen concentration not exceeding 0.1 to 6%)

Process of conformity assessment

Before you can register the EAC Declaration, the products must be tested by an approved laboratory in the EAEU.

The products are tested for the following criteria:

  • composition
  • physical and chemical parameters
  • microbiological parameters
  • content of toxic elements
  • toxic data
  • clinical (clinical-laboratory) measurements
  • processing
  • consumer packaging
  • marking of production

The corresponding requirements and permitted values are specified in the Annexes to the technical regulations 009/2011:

  • Annex 1 contains a list of prohibited substances
  • Annex 2 gives the maximum permissible values for the ingredients in tabular form
  • Annex 3 contains the list of authorized dyes
  • Annex 4 lists the authorized preservatives
  • Annex 5 lists the approved UV filters
  • Annex 6 contains the permitted pH values
  • Annex 7 provides information on microbiological product safety
  • Annex 8 contains requirements for the toxicological indicators

After successful tests, the labs create test reportss. These test reports shall be submitted at the registration of the EAC Declaration in one of the certification body.

Since January 25, 2017, perfumes and cosmetic products can be declared according to 3 schemes:

  • Scheme 3d is intended for series production
  • Scheme 4d applies to a delivery
  • Scheme 6d is used for serial production if the manufacturer has implemented a GMP-compliant quality management system.

Period of validity of the EAC Declaration

Since January 25, 2017, new provisions have been applied to the validity period of the EAC Declaration.

  1. For series production (Scheme 3d) - 5 years.
  2. For Scheme 4d, the validity period of the EAC declaration is limited to the shelf life of the product.
  3. The declaration according to the scheme 6d is issued for a maximum of 7 years.

EAC marking

TR CU 009/2011 On safety of perfumes and cosmetic products

The products declared according to TR CU 009/2011 must be marked with the EAC conformity mark before launching in the market. The conformity mark shall be affixed to each unit of perfumery and cosmetic production and (or) shipping documents.
