Rosselkhoznadzor Detects More Falsified Phytosanitary Certificates for Plant Products Checked at Belarusian Part of Customs Union External Border

The Rosselkhoznadzor has already informed about 110 detected cases when plant food products checked at the Belarusian part of the Customs Union external border were accompanied by falsified phytosanitary certificates. Up to the moment the Rosselkhoznadzor has detected another 70 falsified phytosanitary certificates including 53 Turkish and 17 Serbian certificates.

The total weight of smuggled products detected by the Rosselkhoznadzor within monitoring tests and subjected to primary quarantine phytosanitary check in Belarus is more than three thousand tons.

This is indicative of the fact that the Belarusian competent authorities for some reason do not prevent import or movement of illegal products in the CU territory. To prevent potential smuggling and elaborate a single approach for authenticity determination of certificates accompanying commercial consignments of products the Rosselkhoznadzor addressed again to the Minister of Agriculture and Food of Belarus on February 6, 2015 with the proposal to arrange joint monitoring of imported products at the Belarusian part of the Customs Union external border. Unfortunately the response of the Belarusian Ministry of Agriculture and Food to the proposal has not been received by the Rosselkhoznadzor yet.

The Rosselkhoznadzor also proposed to hold phone consultations on non-equivalent measures taken by the Belarusian side in relation to oilcake moved in the CU territory. This proposal was also ignored and the fact raises deep concerns of the Rosselkhoznadzor.
