On 26 June 2018, the Russian Government announced a temporary licencing requirement on aluminium wheel imports from the countries outside of the Customs Union.
According to the description on the website of the Russian Government, the rationale behind the implementation of the temporary licencing requirement was a need to reduce health-related risks emerging from the use of unsafe wheels and a creation of a competitive environment on the Russian domestic wheels market.
The temporary licencing requirement is effective from 1 July 2018 until and including 31 December 2018.
