The Common Production Mark was approved April 7, 2011 in Decision No. 605 by the 26th Congress of the Customs Union Commission. The Customs Union is made up of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, and was created on January 20, 2005.
The Common Production Mark will be used for marking of products in the Customs Union (CU) and Eurasian Economic Community (EAEC or EurAsEC). EAEC countries include the CU countries, plus Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
Products eligible for the Mark must be on the Common List of Products, and pass all conformity assessment procedures defined by the technical regulations.
The Mark is analogous with the European Union’s CE mark for product safety.
