EAEU established uniform Rules for regulating circulation of veterinary disinfectants, insecticides and decontaminants

On December 12, the Eurasian Economic Commission's Council approved the Rules for regulating the circulation of veterinary disinfectants, insecticides and decontaminants in the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union.

The document has been elaborated and agreed upon by the EEC jointly with the EAEU countries' authorized veterinary bodies since 2014. It covers the entire area of regulating the circulation of the said products. 

With the adoption of the Rules, the Union establishes uniform procedures for the registration of veterinary disinfectants, insecticides and decontaminants, uniform requirements to their quality, efficiency and safety and criteria for their evaluation, as well as uniform rules and procedures for control and supervision of their circulation in the EAEU customs territory. This creates more favorable conditions for the functioning and development of the Union’s common market.

It should be noted that so far all aspects of the circulation of these products have been regulated by national legislation, which made it impossible for the EAEU common market to function in an efficient manner. The adopted document creates more favorable and transparent conditions for the circulation of veterinary disinfectants, insecticides and decontaminants in the Union.

The EEC Council has established some transitional periods. In particular, it is determined that the EAEU Rules will come into effect on September 1, 2027. 

Registration certificates for veterinary disinfectants, insecticides and decontaminants and other documents required for the release of such products into circulation, issued before September 1, 2027, will be valid for the periods established in accordance with the Union countries' legislation, but not later than December 31, 2032. The marketing authorization application of these products registered under the EAEU States' legislation shall be harmonized with the Union Rules by December 31, 2032.

Besides, in accordance with the Rules, the circulation of veterinary disinfectants, insecticides and decontaminants registered in accordance with the Union countries' legislation before September 1, 2027 is allowed in the EAEU until December 31, 2032. It is also allowed to circulate these products put into circulation in accordance with other procedures envisaged by the Union States' legislation until they are registered in accordance with the procedure stipulated by the EAEU Rules.
