On March 12, 2010 at the first reading, the State Duma considered and approved the draft Technical Regulation on Safety of Packaging. This Law aims to prevent situations where consumers are misled.

This Technical Regulation establishes safety requirements for most of the packing used in Russia except for packing for specific types of products, the requirements for which will be determined by individual documents. The Technical Regulation stipulates the requirements for production, storage, transportation and conformity verification of packing. Also, the document establishes the requirements for the product itself, for example, requirements regarding the composition of materials for its manufacture.
