Process to Register Cosmetic Product

Cosmetics can be imported and sold without having to register with the government. However, it is planned to update and standardize local legislation with the EAEU’s entry. A Certificate of State Registration of Products/Products Declaration received through a “centralized” method in one of the EAEU member states is currently accepted. 

The Applicant, a resident of an EAEU member state, should commence the registration (evaluation of conformity) of the cosmetic product. The Applicant is responsible for ensuring that cosmetic items meet the requirements outlined in all applicable EAEU technical regulations.

Additional Information

Before a cosmetic product can be placed on the market in the EAEU, it must have a common mark indicating the product’s circulation. The mark is placed on each product’s package and shows that it complies with the applicable EAEU Technical Regulations and has passed the conformity assessment.

Before beginning the declaration procedure, samples of perfumery and cosmetic items must be researched (tested) in an EAEU Member State’s recognised testing laboratory.

As a result, the declaration procedure may be broken down into the following steps:

  • Carrying out research (tests) on samples in an accredited testing laboratory.
  • Examining the application, the results of investigations (tests), and other essential documentation that prove the products’ safety and adherence to the EAEU Technical Regulations.
  • Registration of the declaration with an accredited body.

Labelling

When it comes to labelling, the Technical Regulation imposes additional requirements compared to those of the European Union. These include:

  • Identifying the company’s name and address registered within the Customs Union, responsible for product distribution.
  • Specifying the shade or dye for makeup and hair dye products.
  • Noting the fluorine content by weight for oral hygiene products.
  • Providing the expiry date and manufacturing date of the product.
  • Displaying the Eurasian conformity mark.

In terms of technical specifications, Regulation TR TC 009/2011 is influenced by European legislation, which includes a list of prohibited substances in cosmetics, restrictions on substances that can only be used under certain conditions, and positive lists of permitted substances such as colorants, preservatives, or UV filters. Additionally, the regulation addresses pH value, microbiology, and other aspects not extensively covered in European directives or regulations.
