The preferential regime provides that developed countries give tariff preferences for the export from developing and least developed countries on the principles of universality, non-discrimination and non-reciprocity.

In accordance with Article 45 of the EAEU Treaty of May 29, 2014, lists of countries – beneficiaries of the EAEU Common system of tariff preferences and the list of goods originating from developing countries and least developed countries (that are subject to tariff preferences when importing into the customs territory of EAEU member states) are determined by the Eurasian Economic Commission.
