applied to the composition of perfume and cosmetic products in the Eurasian
Economic Union's market have been clarified – the lists of substances
prohibited or permitted for use subject to specified restrictions as well as
lists of permitted colorants, preservatives and UV-filters have been updated.
The requirements have been harmonized with the EU Cosmetics Regulation.
Certain groups of products with no microbiological indicators defined have
been separated as well. These are nail polishes, oxidative hair dyes,
depilation and other products where no microorganisms can exist and grow.
A number of norms for conformity assessment, including taking into account new
standard schemes adopted by the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission in
April 2018, have been clarified. In particular, the list of documents the
applicant must submit for registering the declaration has been established, and
the term for keeping these documents in an accredited or authorized body has
been defined. Some cases have been contemplated when the declaration of
conformity can be accepted without additional tests, for example, when the
applicant's contact details or CN FEA code have been changed.
Common validity criteria for statements made in respect of perfumes and
cosmetics have been introduced. From now on, for example, no statements
declaring absence of substances prohibited for use in cosmetics are allowed.
Statements about ingredient properties should not unreasonably extend to the
product properties. In addition, they should not include any information about
the approval by executive authorities, etc.
In July last year, the EEC Board established transitional provisions for
entering into force of amendments to the Union's Technical Regulation "On
safety of perfume and cosmetic products", providing for a gradual
transition to new requirements. For instance, any conformity attesting
documents adopted before May 5, 2020, are valid until the end of their validity
period. Any documents on state registration also issued before May 5, 2020 are
valid until May 5, 2023.
