Phase-out of ozone-depleting substances
and fluorinated greenhouse gases in the Russian Federation

Legislation of the Eurasian Economic Union

Back

The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) unites Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. Participating countries use common customs tariffs and other measures regulating commerce with third countries. The regulating authority of EAEU is the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).

EAEU’s predecessors were the Customs Union and Common Economic Space.

EAEU’s regulations on protection of the ozone layer and climate cover transboundary movement of ODS and—after adoption of the Kigali amendment by members of EAEU—fluorinated greenhouse gases.

Resolution of the Eurasian Economic Commission dd. 21.04.2015 No. 30 (as amended on 13.06.2016) “On non-tariff regulatory measures”

The document bans import of all ODS, except for HCFC, and products containing them into the territory of EAEU and a reporting form for import, export and use of ODS.

Import and export of HCFC and products containing them shall be licensed and/or by application of other administrative regulating measures for foreign trade.

Legislation of the Eurasian Economic Union Agreement on movement of ODS and products containing them and recording ODS during mutual trade between members of the Eurasian Economic Union dd. 29.05.2015 (as of 01.10.2018 has not come into effect)

The agreement provides for information exchange between appropriate authorities about issued permits for ODS movement and reporting for persons importing and exporting ODS into/from the countries of EAEU and persons producing such substances.

Legislation of the Eurasian Economic Union Resolution of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission dd. 27.11.2017 No. 162 “On a unified form of permits issued in accordance with the Agreement on movement of ODS and products containing them and recording ODS during mutual trade between members of the Eurasian Economic Union dd. 29.05.2015 and Agreement on movement of service and civilian weapons between members of the Eurasian Economic Union dd. 20.05.2016”

The resolution stipulates that the form of permits approved by the Resolution of the Board of EEC dd. 16.05.2012 No. 45 is the unified form of movement permits for ODS and production containing them in the customs territory of EAEU.

This rule comes into effect from the effective date of the Agreement on movement of ODS and products containing them and recording ODS during mutual trade between members of the Eurasian Economic Union dd. 29.05.2015.
