The Forthcoming Talks between the Rosselkhoznadzor and the Plenipotentiary Agricultural Counselor of the US Department of Agriculture of the US Embassy Scott Reynolds

The talks are to be held on October 12. The meeting is initiated by the Rosselkhoznadzor with the aim to resolve the situation concerning export of milk products from the USA to the Russian Federation hindered by the American side.

In 2009 – 2010, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance made several requests to the Veterinary Service of the USA to submit the lists of milk-producing plants of the USA interested in export of their products to the Russian Federation and complying with the Russian animal health standards and requirements and with the requirements of the Customs Union. Till the present moment, these lists have not been received by the Rosselkhoznadzor.

According to the requirements of the Customs Union that came into force on July 1, 2010, only products from holdings or plants of third countries included into the List of plants of third countries are allowed for import into the customs area of the Customs Union. In this connection, milk products produced at plants of the USA cannot be imported to the Russian Federation.

These problems and other topical issues concerning veterinary surveillance will be discussed in the course of the meeting.
