The Ministry of Trade and Industry of the Russian Federation has again extended the deadline for the inventory procedure for chemical substances. Companies, which produce chemical substances and import them in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), may register their chemicals until the 1st of August 2020 in the inventory.
This was announced in the Ministry's letter of 24 April 2020. These measures are necessary in order to support companies in this difficult economic situation due to COVID-19.
All chemical substances which are already in circulation or planned to be put on the market have to be registered in the inventory of chemical substances. Information, which comes from this inventory is subsequently entered in the national part of the register. The Chemical Inventory is the first preparatory step for the introduction of the the technical regulation TR EAEU 041/2017 On safety of chemicals, which comes into force on June 2, 2021. The new technical regulation applies to all chemical substances and replaces the existing national regulations.
