Russia: Draft Amendments to EAEU Technical Regulation on Food Additives

On January 10, 2019, Russia notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) of draft amendment No. 2 to the Technical Regulation (TR) of the Customs Union “Safety Requirements for Food Additives, Flavorings and Technological Aids” (TR TS 029/2012). The measure is based on the Eurasian Economic Union’s analysis of the first five years of the TR implementation. As a result, some definitions are added or updated and additional requirements to food additives, flavors and technological aids are introduced. The public comment period for the draft will close on March 10, 2019. Interested U.S. parties are encouraged to share their comments and concerns with the National Institute of Standards and Technology at ncsci@nist.gov.
