EEC amends technical regulations for textiles

The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has recently approved changes to the technical regulations of the Customs Union 'on safety of the production of light industry'. This will simplify procedures for certification of compliance for textiles, apparel and accessories. The EEC oversees the Customs Union consisting of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia.

The changes made by the EEC apply to carpets, matt, felt, nonwoven materials, and their products. For these products, EEC requirements with respect to biological and chemical safety were termed excessive by the European Union. Now, they have been made simpler, in particular by removing 'hygroscopicity' regulation for table and kitchen linen and 'air permeability' regulation for blankets and pillows.

The EEC has also amended the certification procedure of conformity with mandatory requirements. Table and kitchen linens, handkerchiefs, swimwear, towels and sheets, and scarfs are currently subject to compliance certificate. Post-amendment, they will be subject to declaration.

Similarly, for large businesses with their own laboratories, the procedure for obtaining compliance documents will become considerably simpler.

For underwear, corsetry and bathing products, the compliance assessment shall be in the form of certification.

The technical error in standardising of water-washable chromium mass fraction in fur products has been corrected. The correct value shall not exceed 3.0 mg/kg.

“The changes have made it possible to balance the Technical Regulations, take into account the practice of its application by all market participants, and simplify access of safe finished products to the markets,” said EEC minister for technical regulation Valery Koreshkov.

The minister mentioned that an applicant can now use test certificates of materials and components from which they are manufactured as evidence of compliance of the finished products.

All these changes will come into effect in 12 months from the date of the publication of the EEC. (RKS)
