Sergey Dankvert held talks on Plant Quarantine with Director General of DG for Health and Food Safety of European Commission Anne Bucher

In the course of the talks that took place on January 17, on the margins of Green Week 2020 the Parties reviewed their respective plant quarantine legislation. The Russian side reiterated its interest in exports of Russian plant products banned by the provisions of Directive 2000/29/ЕС and EU Regulation 2016/2031 to the EU and indicated its readiness to send materials requested by the EU.

With that, EU Member States stated their willingness to export seed and planting material without pre-shipment control as well as without providing information and conducting the procedure for recognition of zones, places and sites of production of the above-indicated products as free from objects subjected to quarantine in the EAEU. Instead, the EU suggests using the results of the audit of the phytosanitary control system applied in the EU Member States. To that end, the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety of the European Commission will send to the Eurasian Economic Commission a request for the above-mentioned procedure to be conducted by the EAEU Member States.

The Parties agreed to continue cooperation in the area under question.
