The Russian Industry and Trade Ministry has released the country’s Existing Chemical Substances Inventory on the Governmental Industry Information Exchange Platform (GISP). There are 80,002 substances are present in inventory now.

This enforcement of Technical Regulation on Safety of Chemicals (TR EAEU 041/2017) is prepared by five EAEU countries, including Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia. The current existing Chemical Substances Inventory in Russia is a part of the Combined Existing Substances Inventory under TR EAEU 041/2017.

After the TR EAEU 041/2017 takes effect, substances that have not been listed in the Combined Existing Substances Inventory are considered as new substances in EAEU and will require record-keeping or registration before coming into the market. Besides, the data requirements for new substances are also stricter than that of the existing substances.

The TR EAEU 041/2017 was due to take effect on 2 Jun. 2021, but will be postponed as the “secondary legislation” is still under amendments. It is still not sure when will the regulation be implemented.
