Technical regulations 044/2017 "On the safety of packaged drinking water, including natural mineral water" are coming into force in the Eurasian Economic Union starting from January 1, 2019.
New TR is applicable to packaged drinking water related to food products intended for consumers, including:
Natural mineral water
Blended drinking water
Natural and processed drinking water
Drinking water for children
Artificially mineralized water
All processes of production, transportation, storage, and sale of drinking water, offered in any package
In order to confirm the compliance of the proposed water with the standards of the specified Technical Regulation, it will be necessary to obtain the Declaration of Conformity. Moreover, for certain categories of products, the state registration procedure is required as well.
Products compliant with the requirements of the EAEU TR are marked with the conformity mark (EAC).
The mark is applied to each consumer packaging on the place where clarity and visibility is guaranteed during the whole warranty period of a product.
If drinking water is packed in a container, that will be sold to the end consumer, the conformity mark can be applied on the accompanied documents.
