Registration of food supplements

Functioning of the common market for special food products within the EAEU is carried out in accordance with the Agreement on the Eurasian Economic Union of May 29, 2014, the Decision of the Customs Union Commission of May 28, 2010 № 299 “Unified sanitary-epidemiological and hygienic requirements for products (goods) subject to sanitary-epidemiological supervision (control)”, as well as in accordance with acts of the Eurasian Economic Commission in the field of food products circulation.

Specialized food products are subject to state registration under the “centralized” procedure according to the EAEU Technical Regulations, the main of which is the Technical Regulations CU 021/2011 “On food safety”. Registration gives the right to circulate products in all countries of the Eurasian Economic Union: Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. However, national language and labeling requirements should be taken into account.

Speciality food products include:

  • biologically active food additives (BAA);
  • food products to feed athletes;
  • food products to feed pregnant and lactating women;
  • food products for child nutrition;
  • food products for dietetic therapeutic and dietetic preventive nutrition;
  • natural mineral water, therapeutic table water, therapeutic mineral water with salinity exceeding 1 mg/dm3 or with less salinity containing biologically active substances in an amount not lower than balneological norms;

State registration of specialized food products of foreign production is performed before their import to the EAEU customs territory.

Common mark of the product circulation on the EAEU market must be affixed on the food product prior to it’s placing on the market. The mark is affixed to the package of each individual food product, and indicates compliance with the requirements of all applicable EAEU Technical Regulations and passing the assessment of conformity.

The manufacturer, Applicant and importer shall be responsible for the quality and safety of food products and for compliance with the requirements of Technical regulations.

Registration (assessment of conformity) of the food product should be initiated by the Applicant, resident of the EAEU member state. The Applicant shall be obliged to ensure conformity of food products to the requirements established by all applicable Technical regulations of the EAEU.

Prior to the registration procedure it can be required to conduct research (testing) of samples of specialized food products in accredited testing laboratories in the territory of the EAEU member states. Thus, it is possible to present the state registration procedure in following steps:

  • Expert examination of the Application, results of studies (tests) and other necessary documents which confirm safety and conformity of the products to the requirements of the EAEU Technical regulations;
  • Issue of a certificate of conformity and entry of information into the common register of specialized food products.

Prior to the registration we advice to perform feasibility study: to check the product composition, quality, safety and labeling requirements for compliance with the requirements of EAEC Technical Regulations, for example:

  • Technical Regulations 021/2011 “On Food Safety”, in particular Annex 7 “List of Plants and Products of Their Processing, Objects of Animal Origin, Microorganisms, Fungi and Biologically Active Substances Banned for Use in the Composition of Biologically Active Food Additives”;
