EEC Council adopted number of decisions to change COG rules for public procurement

By Decision of the Eurasian Economic Commission's Council, amendments were made to Annex No. 1 to the Rules for determining the country of origin of goods for public procurement (COG).

Conditions for the manufacture of medical gloves (heading "Medical Products") were developed and agreed upon jointly with representatives of the Union countries' public bodies authorized in the field of procurement and business, using a point approach to calculate their production localization level.

According to Bakhyt Sultanov, EEC Minister in charge of Competition and Antitrust Regulation, earlier the Russian Federation had restricted access to public procurement for this heading according to Resolution No. 617 of the Government of the Russian Federation dated April 30, 2020. "Now the EAEU goods, information about which will be included in the Eurasian Register, will have free access to public procurement," the EEC Minister noted.

Besides, the Decision of the Commission's Council extended until December 31, 2024 the period during which the goods included in Annex No. 1-1 of the COG Rules are entered into the Eurasian Register of Industrial Goods based on the ST-1 certificate of origin.
