On March 3, 2017, the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission passed the technical regulation „On safety of chemicals“. The document determines unified requirments for chemical products manufactured within the EAEU as well as rules regarding conformity assessment, rules of identification, requirements for terminology and marking.
The technical regulation corresponds with the EU's REACH regulation.
The regulation intends the protection of the population's life and health as well as of the environments. It is supposed to prevent actions that are misleading consumers.
