Ban on Transportation of US Live Poultry and Products thereof in the Russian Federation

Pursuant to the OIE data, more than 157 outbreaks of HPAI (H5N1, H5N2 and H5N8 subtypes) are reported in 17 US States. According to the statistics provided by the USDA the number of dead and destroyed poultry is 33.3 million head and it is growing now.

Taking into account risks of HI spread in the USA, the Rosselkhoznadzor has to take additional measures to protect the RF territory from this dangerous disease. Therefore, transportation of US live poultry, poultry products and hatching eggs through the RF territory (with the exception for SPF-eggs) will be suspended on the 10th of June, 2015.

As previously reported due to mass spread of the disease in the USA and based on the precautionary principle, on the 5th of December, 2014 the Rosselkhoznadzor imposed temporary resections on imports of US poultry meat, offal and ready-to-eat meat products from the US plants. Alongside with it, temporary restrictions were imposed on the 26th of May, 2015 on imports of live poultry and hatching eggs (with the exception for SPF-eggs) from the whole US territory.
