Clarification on when new requirements for GLN are or aren't needed.
ELEOS Team have been recently receiving multiple enquiries to clarify new Global Identification Number (GLN) and Global Item Trade Number (GTIN) requirements that have been introduced earlier this year in Russia, therefore a short summary below was prepared to understand what it is, when it is or isn't required and what stand do other Member States take on this.  

Firstly, requirement for the GLN and GTIN numbers was proposed by the Russia Governing Bodies in the Order No. 877 from 30.12.2020 of The Ministry of Economic Development, which came into effect on 09.02.2021 and in the Resolution No. 1856 from 18.11.2020 of the Government of the Russian Federation, which came into effect on 01.01.2021.

According to these documents, listing of the GLN number will become mandatory in Russia from:
- 01.07.2021 for all DoC applications;
- 01.08.2021 for all CoC applications.

Requirement to list GTIN number on the other hand will remain voluntary.

Secondly, it is important to emphasize here that provision of the above numbers is only required if EAC Approval application is handled by the Russian Certification Bodies and is registered in the Russian national registry. If, however, application is handled and registered in other Member States, then neither of the numbers are required.

Discussions on whether GLN and GTIN number should be a harmonized requirement across all Member States is still ongoing. As it stands, there is a significant opposition from other Member States to follow suit of Russia's approach, however should anything change, further update will be issued.

As a side note, GLN is part of the GS1 systems of standards, which is compliant with ISO/IEC 6523. It is used to identify a location such as a warehouse or a legal entity. GTIN on the other hand is used to look up product information in a database which may belong to a manufacturer or other legal entity.

Effective date of TR 048/2019 on Energy Efficiency postponed until 01/09/2022.
On January 29, the EEC Council decided to postpone the effective date of the TR of EAEU "On The Requirements for Energy Efficiency of Energy Consumption Devices" (EAEU 048/2019) from 01-Sep-21 to 01-Sep-22.

Furthermore, subsequent decision was made to postpone the effective date for the EEC Council Decree, which sets the forms for labels of energy-consuming devices of different types and the rules of their registration to 01-Mar-2022, which is a pre-requisite for the above TR on EE to come into effect.
The full text of the announcement in RU language can be found here
For those who haven't been following development of this TR, then please continue to read for a brief overview on what it entails, as well as what it will mean for the manufacturers once introduced.

The EAEU TR 048/2019 was developed to bring a harmonized approach from the compliance perspective across all EAEU Member States (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia) to ensure energy efficiency and resource conservation. 

It defines requirements for conformity assessment, including rules on product classification, general requirements for labelling and accompanying documents, as well as rules on energy efficiency class determination. 

Similarly as for current EAC EMC, Safety & RoHS schemes, to comply with the EAEU TR 048/2019, manufacturers would have to follow compliance route via a Declaration or Certification scheme. A single EAC Approval can cover all applicable TR, however, in certain cases, it would be more beneficial to obtain a separate Declaration to cover just RoHS and EE for example, bespoke assessment of which will be performed by ELEOS Team on start of every project and aligned with each customer. 
Most of the products however will fall under the declaration scheme, with the exception of computers and servers that are connected to a mains power source, as well as few other devices. The full list of products that are subject to certification or declaration can be found in Appendix No. 1 of the draft EAEU TR 048/2019 (page 25).

Finally, please note that a grace period of 24 months was recently introduced for the EAEU TR 048/2019 from the effective date. This means that once the grace period is over, all national level certificates on Energy Efficiency will be replaced by EAC.

Clarification on local holder requirements
On October 25th 2019, the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council published Decision Number 10 which has now been signed by all 5 member states of the Eurasian Customs Union (EAEU).

This Decision provides clarification as to who can be considered a local holder for approval purposes within the Customs Union, which was previously open to interpretation by CBs.

The document states that a local holder must be a company registered within the Eurasian Customs Union “that carries out activities on behalf of the manufacturer during release of products for circulation at the territory of EAEU and bears responsibility for non-compliance of products with the requirements of the EAEU Technical Regulations”. To be in compliance with this Decision there, the local holder should therefore be a local importer.
