Rosselkhoznadzor Discussed Interim Results of Audit of the Russian Control System for Residues of Harmful and Prohibited Substances in Products and Animals with Representatives of European Commission http://www.fsvps.ru/fsvps/events/30368.html?_language=en On May 21 the preliminary audit results of the Russian control system for monitoring residues of harmful and prohibited substances in animal products were discussed by the Directorate General of the European Commission for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE).

The discussion was attended by Maxim Tsukanov, Head of Directorate for International Cooperation and Veterinary Control of Export/Import and Transportation of the Rosselkhoznadzor, as well as DG SANTE auditors Miren Izaskun El Busto and Aleksey Solyakov.

The representatives of the European Commission said that since May 14 they had visited three Rosselkhoznadzor subordinate institutions: the FGBI Novosibirsk MVL, the FGBI Leningrad MVL and FGBI Saratov MVL. They reported that during the audit one of the most important issues for them was inspection of the internal laboratory quality and safety control of products in these institutions.

In addition the DG SANTE representatives reminded that during the previous audit conducted in 2017 they had recommended that the Russian side ensured traceability of product samples sent for laboratory testing. The MERCURY electronic product certification system introduced last year and integrated with the VESTA laboratory test registration system, allowed us to achieve this requirement. The auditors were able to trace the origin of animals received for slaughter based on the example of a specific sample.

During the audit the European party studied data on horse population and number of slaughterhouses, as well as on planning monitoring of horse meat in Russia in connection with the interest of Russian producers in export of horse meat to the European Union. The DG SANTE representatives also familiarized themselves with the draft rules of animal identification in Russia. They reported that in many countries such rules had already been adopted, therefore the development of such instructions by the Russian side is very timely and will allow Russia to expand exports of livestock products.

The European delegation noted that since the previous DG SANTE audit the Rosselkhoznadzor had done a lot of work and tried to implement the recommendations given by the European Commission two years before.

The final meeting within the DG SANTE auditors’ visit will be held on May 24.

The meeting was also attended by the representatives of the Russian Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Rosselkhoznadzor specialists.

The Rosselkhoznadzor informed Mr Plavšić that additional materials had been sent to the OIE regarding restoring of the status of the Russian Federation as a country having a FMD-free zone without vaccination.

During the meeting the parties also discussed in detail the forthcoming OIE events in which Russia is invited to take part. In particular, the parties reviewed a possible meeting of Nikolay Vlasov, Russian OIE Delegate and Deputy Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor, with Monique Eloit, OIE Director General, within the framework of the OIE General Session in May, 2019. In the same period it is also planned to hold a meeting between the Rosselkhoznadzor and the OIE Status Department and a representative of the OIE Scientific Commission to consider granting Russia a status as a country with an officially controlled BSE risk and to examine the possibility for Russia to apply for PPR and contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP). Besides, the Rosselkhoznadzor informed Mr Plavšić that the Service was about to send some additional information on self-declaration of the HPAI-free status restoration of zones in the Russian Federation. Acquiring such status, among other things, will contribute to exports diversification and growth.

Moreover, the parties agreed to have a number of consultations with the participation of the OIE experts on the following issues: antimicrobial resistance, brucellosis and rabies. Another important issue touched upon during the meeting related to the participation of Russia in the OIE regional seminar on stray dog population management for West Eurasia countries. The first round of the seminar is planned to be held in Russia in the nearest time. The second round will take place in Georgia this September. 

Sergey Dankvert underlined that the issue at stake was highly relevant for Russia. In this context, it was noted that veterinary services in a number of regions (not part of the Rosselkhoznadzor system) did not pay necessary attention to existing risks of social and veterinary nature that are incurred by stray animals. In this connection, within the framework of the seminar the Rosselkhoznadzor is intending to work out the most humane approaches to deal with the current issues in Russia. Afterwards those recommendations will be transmitted for implementation to the subjects of the Russian Federation.

A particular part of the meeting was devoted to Russia’s successful application of the electronic veterinary certification on the basis of the FGIS “Mercury”. In the view of the parties, introducing such a system contributes to reduced risk of animal disease propagation in the country. It was highlighted that launching of “Mercury” analogues in other states would help preventing massive spread of the ASF virus which is of particular concern to the European countries and China. In this context, the parties acknowledged the need to share the experience of Russia in a more extended manner during the forthcoming OIE regional events.
