The Russian Ministry for Industry and Trade (Minpromtorg) has published the final version of its chemical inventory (Russian only). The list contains some 80,000 chemicals. The list is to be integrated into the register of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), whose members includeArmenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. The goal of the EAEU is to use the EU as a model to record and monitor all chemical substances on the market in the EAEU.
The inventory list is a pillar of the new chemicals law in the Eurasian Economic Union (TR EAEU 041/2017, or Eurasian REACH) that should take effect at the end of 2022.
Companies had until August 2020 to register their chemicals. If your firm has missed the deadline but still want to market your chemicals within the EAEU, you can catch up until June 2, 2023. However, in this case you are obligated to provide evidence that the chemicals in question were on the market before the new regulation took effect. Acceptable evidence includes customs documents, invoices, delivery contracts, and shipping documents.
If you miss the deadline in June 2023, you must register your substances as new chemicals, even if they are parts of mixtures. In general, the registration requirements correspond to those of Annex VIII of REACH. The data required includes information on the physical-chemical properties, the results of studies on toxicity and ecotoxicity, an assessment of persistence and potential for bioaccumulation, and a risk assessment in case of exposure.
