The meeting of the Advisory Committee on Technical Regulation, Application of Sanitary, Veterinary and Phytosanitary Measures, chaired by Viktor Nazarenko, Minister in charge of Technical Regulation of the Eurasian Economic Commission, approved draft amendments No. 2 to the Customs Union's Technical Regulations "On safety of railway rolling stock", " On safety of high-speed rail transport" and “On safety of rail transport infrastructure” to be sent for public discussion.

Draft amendments No. 1 to the Customs Union's Technical Regulation "On safety of small size vessels" and the program for developing interstate standards to two Technical Regulations of the Union - "On safety of products intended for civil defense and protection against natural and man-made emergencies" and “On safety of underground rolling stock” were approved for consideration at the EEC Board's meeting.

The Advisory Committee also recommended to send for consideration at the EEC Board's meeting the Rules for regulating the circulation of veterinary disinfectants, insecticides and decontaminants, envisaging uniform requirements and conditions for the circulation of these types of goods in the Union market, and draft amendments to Decision No. 1 of the EEC Council dated January 21, 2022, which will determine transition periods for complying with the requirements to marking of medicinal products for human use and veterinary medicinal products, as well as the Good Manufacturing Practices of the Eurasian Economic Union. 

As advised by the Union States' authorized bodies, the Advisory Committee approved the updated composition of the Expert Working Group on drafting second-level documents as part of implementing the Eurasian Economic Union's Technical Regulation "On safety of chemical products".

Following the consideration of amendments to certain technical regulations of the Union on the basis of the research activities carried out by the Commission, including the assessment of the scientific and technical level of the Union's technical regulations, the Member States' authorized bodies will further examine the results of such research activities to prepare proposals for making amendments to the Plan for developing technical regulations.
