Food Supplement Registration in Russia

Food Supplements Registration in Russia - Overview

In Russia, food supplements are regulated and implemented by the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing or Rospotrebnadzor. The issues related to the state registration of food supplements in Russia are regulated by the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union on food safety, sanitary regulations and standards, and other technical regulations. Certain products, like vitamins, mineral supplements, and herbal ingredients, require pre-market approval before they are placed on the market. Herbal ingredients can also be classified as supplements, and authorities maintain a list of forbidden plants that can be used as food supplements/herbal Ingredients/supplements.

According to the Russian Ministry of Health, to place any food product on the market, the brand owner of the product must ensure that the product is compliant with the sanitary-epidemiological examination, state registration of in case of food supplements, and labeling. For novel foods, pre-market authorization is done based on sanitary and epidemiological examinations. To successfully launch a dietary supplement in the Russian market, a manufacturer needs to verify whether the product can be registered as a dietary supplement, then prepare and submit a registration dossier, analyze the sample, organize the import of the product to Russia (if required), and communicate with the Rospotrebnadzor and accredited expert laboratories.
