The unified marking of goods will be introduced into the EEA until the end of 2017

The draft agreement on the marking of goods by means of identification in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEC) is aimed at internal harmonization. The document prepared by the working group of the Eurasian Economic Commission (ECE) will be considered by the governments of the countries of the Union. Further, after approval by the Council of ECE, the agreement will again be sent to the heads of government of the member states for signature. It is expected that it will be accepted until the end of 2017.
In the draft agreement, the developers tried to create conditions for protecting the rights of consumers, as well as life and health of people, ensuring the legal turnover of goods throughout the entire EAE. The document establishes the main marking mechanisms and helps in the implementation of the traceability of goods, the turnover of which occurs in the customs territory of the Union. The list of goods falling under its operation will be determined later during the meeting of the ECE Council.
According to the project, the goods are marked with identification means within the framework of the EAES. General requirements for such tools will be their computer readability and technological compatibility (reciprocity). The information on the goods will then be entered in a single register, which will form and lead the ECE.
The ECE Collegium also approved the draft order of the ECE Council, which defines and regulates the conduct of the tax policy of the EEA states in the field of excise taxes on alcohol and tobacco products. It has already been proposed to give the Council of ECE the authority to approve indicative rates of excise on alcohol and tobacco products, as well as ranges of deviations from them. When calculating rates, the euro will be taken into account in the national currency of the countries of the Union.
Indicative rates and ranges of deviation will be approved every 5 years for a period of one year starting from 2022. Thus, the adoption of agreements will allow further progress on the way to the creation of a single market of alcohol and tobacco products in the EEA through the harmonization of excise rates.
