Ministry of Economy of Ukraine has approved a new Technical Regulation on crystal glass

In the EU, the Council Directive 69/493/EEC of 15 December 1969 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to crystal glass is currently in force. In order to gradually achieve compliance with EU technical regulations under Article 56 of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine adopted Order No. 896 dated 10 February 2023, “On Approval of the Technical Regulation on Crystal Glass” (hereinafter – “Regulation“).

The Regulation establishes features and requirements for the labeling of certain types of crystal glass: of high-, medium-, and low-lead crystal glass as well as barium crystal glass. In particular, the requirements relate to the shape and color of the packaging, the application of the corresponding identification symbol, as well as the necessary information in cases where the trademark, manufacturer’s name, or any other inscription can be confused with the name of the type of crystal glass (see Appendix 1 to the Regulation). To determine the type of crystal glass, the methods for determining the chemical and physical properties of crystal glass specified in Appendix 2 to the Regulation are applied.

The Regulation applies to products introduced and provided on the Ukrainian market (except for products for export purposes). It relates to the heading 7013 of the UKT ZED: glassware used for table, kitchen, toilet, office, indoor decoration or similar purposes.

The Regulation will ensure that the requirements for crystal glass products are identical to those in the European Union, which will promote the competitiveness of Ukrainian products in the European and global markets and prevent business practices that mislead consumers (users).
