Additional Regulations:

In Russia there are numerous legislative acts that pertain to chemical management. However, as Russia moves to align its legislation with the UN GHS, the following draft regulations have been approved and may become mandatory soon:

GOST 30333-2007: Chemical production safety passport. General requirements
GOST R 53856-2010: Classification of chemical hazards. General requirements

In Russia the consumer rights protection agency (Rospotrebnadzor) is responsible for the registration of certain hazardous chemical products. The agency also provides the latest consumer protection news, links and relevant documents.
