Following new rules from March 1, 2020, many aftermarket cartridges have been blocked from entering the Russian market, particularly those manufactured in China.

“It has been illegal to import IT equipment, printing devices and consumables—including cartridges, inks and toners—that violate RoHS environmental requirements,” Malinskiy told RT Media. “Those cartridges that violate RoHS requirements are NOT ALLOWED in Russia.” According to Malinskiy, the situation in the Russian market has changed for printing devices and supplies. All suppliers and distributors must conform to higher standards of environmental friendliness as determined by Russian expert organizations. Malinskiy warned the crowd at the RT RemaxWorld Summit in October 2019 in Zhuhai the new laws were coming. Tens of thousands of cartridges have been rejected since March 2020.

Printer cartridges now have to undergo an examination performed by accredited organizations in Russia and the EAEU countries.

Almost all OEMs were able to have their products comply very quickly as did many remanufacturers in Western Europe. “For the first time in 10 years, it has given manufacturers of remanufactured cartridges a chance to significantly increase their market share in Russia,” Malinskiy asserts.
