New changes in the (EAC) regulations on perfumery and cosmetic products
On March 15, 2019, the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission has officially published the order, which approved the draft amendments to the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union “On the safety of perfumery and cosmetic products” (TR CU 099/2011).
The first changes concern the terminology used in the regulations. Thus, the list of definitions will be updated with new positions:
- Make-up for tanning;
- Microbiologically low-risk products;
- Sterile cosmetics.
Security requirements for certain categories of perfumes and cosmetics are being changing as well. This concerns the composition of oral hygiene products: a ban is imposed on the use of sucrose and other easily fermentable carbohydrates.
Hydrogen index (pH) will not be regulated by the following types of products:
- Depilatory waxes;
- Anhydrous hair styling gels;
- Grease wax products;
- Hair sprays;
- Lump toilet soap;
- 100% essential oils, etc.
The list of goods for which microbiological indicators are not considered was determined. Among these goods, there are: nail polishes, deodorants, antiperspirants, bath salts, etc.
In addition, the project includes the specifications of standards for product labeling, storage and disposal.
The changes will be approved by the Council of the EEC in the near future.
