The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEU) has agreed on the simplification of regulatory requirements on textiles, clothing and their accessories.

The changes they have agreed upon are listed below:

  • Exclusion of provisions on “hygroscopic” for table and kitchen linen, and “breathability” for blankets and pillows, due to their redundancy
  • Requirement of declaration of presence of articles containing harmful substances only, instead of requiring certificate of conformity for items, such as carpets, felts, non-woven fabrics and other products
  • Reduction of net migration limit for chromium in water leachable fur products to 3.0 mg/kg
  • Application of control to the migration of harmful substances from the inner surface of footwear, instead of only exterior surfaces

The changes will take effect after all four member countries have signed the regulation.

The decision was made during a meeting of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission on August 9, 2016.
