The growing demand for cosmetic and personal care products makes Russia one of the most preferred markets in the world. The current cosmetics legislation in Russia is called the Technical Regulation on the Safety of Cosmetic Products (CU TR 009/2011). These regulations for cosmetic products in Russia came into force in 2012 and are managed by the Russian Ministry of Health (MoH). However, the same cosmetic regulations i.e., CU TR 009/2011 have been adopted by countries such as Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan along with Russia to form the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), (formerly Customs Union) to create a harmonized regulation. For the sale of cosmetic and personal care products in the Russian market, it is crucial to have an EAEU-based authorized representative. The roles and responsibilities of the representative are like that of the Responsible Person (RP) in the European Union (EU). The representative is responsible for the safety and compliance of the cosmetic product and to maintain the technical documentation.
Cosmetic products in Russia are classified into two (02) categories based on associated risks:
- High-risk products (skin whiteners, tanning products, intimate care products, baby care, straighteners, etc.) require a pre-market registration to validate their safety.
- Low-risk products require a declaration of conformity (EAC declaration) to a body approved by the Rospotrebnadzor.
The russian cosmetic registration process proves challenging for brand owners desiring seamless market entry in Russia. As a proven Regulatory partner, Freyr provides cosmetics Regulatory services in Russia and supports cosmetic manufacturers to achieve compliance with Russian cosmetic regulations.
