The ECE Council decided to accept the second protocol on changing of the Agreement on unified principles and rules of trade of medical devices (items for medical purposes and medical technical items) within the bounds of the Eurasian Economic Community.
The protocol determines the extension of validity of the national rules of registration of medical devices up to the end of 2022. The most of manufacturers see the extension of validity of the national rules of registration and rescheduling of turning to the EAEU rules as an effective supporting measure under the condition of restrictions.
The protocol is coming into force in the EAEU countries that have accepted the policy of temporary application of international regulations. Russia accepted such a policy in the end of 2021.
