Rosselkhoznadzor held an extra meeting with Chinese General Administration of Customs

On July 10, the Rosselkhoznadzor representatives held an additional working meeting with the representatives of the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC) in Beijing.

The Parties reviewed a number of technical issues regarding the issuance and filling-up of veterinary certificates accompanied by which poultry products were exported from Russia to China as well as sending of preliminary notifications. The topic was considered in order to settle complicated issues arising during the release of Russian consignments.

The meeting seemed to have a major importance in the light of the GACC briefing held on July 8 with the representatives of embassies and trade missions accredited to China. In the course of the briefing the Head of the Administration for Food Safety at PCR Export-Imports said that lately a number of complications were revealed at imports of meat products to China. The complications are connected to the fact that imported goods do not comply with the Chinese State standards regarding content of prohibited and harmful substances, as well as to violations during issuance of veterinary certificates and increased detection of forged veterinary certificates and re-export operations.

The Rosselkhoznadzor representatives assured their Chinese colleagues that they would take all possible measures to prevent such incidents during exports of Russian products.

Also the Russian party raised the question regarding possible lifting of restrictions introduced earlier by China against a Russian honey manufacturing establishment. The authorities’ representatives discussed the procedure for cancellation of such export restrictions.

At the conclusion, the Parties agreed to exchange experience in state veterinary control at mutual exports of animal products as well as to launch an integration of Russian and Chinese information systems in the field of animal product certification.

In this context, the Rosselkhoznadzor representatives invited their Chinese colleagues to visit Saint Petersburg to see the functioning of sea border point and state veterinary information systems.
