Kazakhstan - Country Commercial Guide
Labeling/Marking Requirements
Last published date:

According to Kazakhstani legislation, most products imported into the country must be labeled in both the Kazakh and Russian languages.  Product labels should include names, manufacturer, country of origin and information on date of production, period of validity, storage conditions, nutrition data, and usage.

Product manufacturers or sellers obtaining a certificate of conformity have a right to use a mark of conformity established by the state system of technical regulation.

According to the Technical Regulations of the EAEU, all products exported into the EAEU - which are subject of the Mandatory Certification and Conformity Assessment under the regulations - should be labeled with the Eurasian Conformity Mark (EAC).

The main types of products covered by the label are tobacco products, alcoholic products, medicines, textile industry, fur products, shoes and dairy products. Tobacco products and fur products should be subject to mandatory labeling. Pilot projects are currently operating for the remaining types of products. Mandatory labeling of shoes began on November 1, 2021.

Kazakhstan consistently worked on developing a traceability system since 2018, aiming to effectively fight the counterfeiting of drugs. The deadline for 100% mandatory serialization is 2023. From August 1, 2022, it will introduce the new medicines and medical devices labeling guidelines.
