EEC called upon for removing barrier - eliminate restrictions on scrap and waste of ferrous and non-ferrous metals exported from Republic of Kazakhstan to Member States

10/15/2020
On October 13, the Eurasian Economic Commission’s Board decided to notify the Republic of Kazakhstan of the need to enforce the law of the Eurasian Economic Union.

Since the end of October 2018, the Republic of Kazakhstan has restricted the export of scrap and waste of ferrous and non-ferrous metals by road and since June 2020 it has restricted export by rail.

The Board has qualified actions to restrict export of scrap and waste of ferrous and non-ferrous metals from the Republic of Kazakhstan to the Member States as a barrier in the Union’s internal market.

During the monitoring and consultations held with authorized public bodies of the Union countries and the business community, the fact of restricting the export of scrap and waste of ferrous and non-ferrous metals from the Republic of Kazakhstan to the Union countries was confirmed.

According to the provisions of the Treaty on the EAEU, the full functioning of the internal market provides for free movement of goods to consumers, regardless of their belonging to a particular Member State, and access to railway transport services is provided.​
