Bellis letter # 888 dd. 23.09.2020 EAEU Belarus market access update in the Covid-19 situation


Dear Partners,

After having reviewed and systemized multiple enquires from our partners, we would like to inform you about the current situation regarding the establishment of a unified temporary conformity assessment procedure of mass-produced products in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) in the COVID-19 situation.

The 37-th meeting of the Consultative Committee for Technical Regulation, Sanitary, Veterinary and Phytosanitary Measures will be held on September 24, 2020, where will be considered the issue of temporary permission to carry out remote factory inspection and sampling products procedures using IT tools.

BELLIS fully supports this approach of conformity assessment procedures when restriction of experts' departure for conducting on-site factory inspection and sampling is exist. This will minimize negative consequences for the global industrial sector in terms of providing access to the EAEU market through remote mandatory conformity assessment procedures.

Additionally, we would like to inform you about some changes that are planned:

  • In EAEU TR 037/2016 on the Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances in Electrotechnical and Radio-electronic Product in order to implement the latest amendments to Directive 2011/65/EU including supplementation with 4 mandatory hazardous substances (certain types of phthalates) in the EAEU TR 037/2016 as well as expand the scope of EAEU TR 037/2016;
  • In EAEU TR 048/2019 on The requirements for the energy efficiency of energy-consuming devices in order to implement actual requirements of the European Union and to eliminate mistakes and inaccuracies have made during the development of EAEU TR 048/2019.
