On September 30, changes to the technical regulation of the Eurasian Economic Union “On the Safety of Oil Prepared for Transportation and (or) Use” come into force.
By Decision No. 89 dated August 29, 2023, the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission amended the technical regulation, supplementing it with a unified oil data sheet form, the presence of which is stipulated by the technical regulation, and rules for filling it out. Certain provisions of the technical regulation relating to the data sheet form were clarified for the uniform application of its requirements.
In order to ensure the transition to the unified form, data sheets issued for the crude oil run before enacting this decision, i.e. not according to the unified form, shall be valid until November 1, 2023.
Besides, the amendments envisage the frequency of oil testing to be established in the standards included in the list of standards for methods to the technical regulation.
The amendments ensure the formation of unified approaches to the release and circulation of oil in the Union's territory, including with regard to the execution of documentation.
