Introduction: the article is dedicated to the study of the issues related to elaboration of a common legal regulation on the matters of nanotechnologies and development of nano industry within the international regional organization Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), which is the successor of the Eurasian Economic Community (EAEC). This organization has already achieved significant results in the implementation of the common market liberties and seeks further strengthening of economic integration, especially in the field of innovation. Purpose: the key issues addressed in this study are those of establishing legal policy and program regulations aimed at coordinating, negotiating and creating a common legal space in industries that are strategically important for the member states of the EAEU. Nanotechnology is seen as the major economic sector, the priority one for industrial cooperation. Methods: in the course of study the author used both general scientific methods, including dialectical method and method of system analysis, and specific scientific methods, such as technical-legal, comparative legal, formal-logical, method of generalization of legislation and practice of its application, and others. Results: the author concludes that, despite the fact that the international economic organization EAEC was established later than the CIS and that the former CIS members joined it, nano industry began its development within this regional community much earlier and has been developing more fruitfully. The analysis also revealed that these positive effects are determined by the fact that the member states successfully develop legal infrastructure for nano industry through the adoption of national policy documents, as is done in the EU. It was also revealed that there was no common legal space for nanotechnologies in the CIS, which made it difficult to establish uniform national legislation and provide its consistent implementation. This difficulty arose due to multiple bilateral and multilateral treaties between different member states, often contradictory, and also due to different priorities in innovations, which made the development of nano industry in the region irregular, as well as the development of a common economic space for innovation in the CIS. Conclusions: It was proven that the adverse effects of legal infrastructure of nano industry in the CIS were eliminated in the EAEU by means of standardized program regulations established at the international level, which, along with the negative effects, such as inability to subject the participating entities to the strict framework of the existing world order, is characterized, first, by flexibility, which implies freedom of choice of the methods and means for legal integration at the national legislature’s discretion, second, by the ability to quickly replace interstate legal regulations that require more time for the member states to agree on, and third, by higher reactivity compared to positive law related to the needs of modern business.
