The heads of government of the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union determined the rules for the functioning of a single market for sensitive types of products. By order of the EMPS, the free circulation of such goods in mutual trade is fixed within the framework of the approved indicative balances. This was reported by ElDala.kz with reference to the press service of the Eurasian Economic Commission.
“The list includes wheat and meslin, barley, corn, sunflower seeds, sugar, sunflower oil, recycled paper or cardboard, as well as waste and scrap of ferrous metals,” Andrey Slepnev, Minister for Trade of the EEC, informed.
The Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission, together with the governments of the Union states, was instructed to organize the preparation of balance sheets for goods from the specified list.
When exporting these products to third countries, the parties will not allow circumvention of export control measures established by one or more states, including when adopting unilateral and (or) uniform export control measures within the Union.
The EMPS Order comes into force from the date of official publication and is valid until September 30, 2024.
