Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU): Approval of Eurasia REACH and Finalization of Central Chemical Inventory Delayed

The expected approval of the revised chemical regulation (Eurasia REACH or TR EAEU 041/2017) will be delayed by one year, to 2023. The war in Ukraine and the related postponement of finalization of the central chemical inventory are the reasons.

Because of the confusion caused by the war, the five member states of the EAEU (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, and Russia) were unable to assemble their lists of chemicals on time. The deadline expired at the end of September, and the lists were to be combined into a central inventory in October. The inventory is a supporting pillar of Eurasia REACH.

Speculation indicates that the sanctions against Russia have made many chemicals unavailable on the Eurasian market.

At an international conference, Khimia 2022, to be held in Moscow from October 31 to November 3, representatives of the Russian Ministry for Industry and Trade (Minpromtorg) will report on the current status of the draft regulation.
