Rosselkhoznadzor Met with Delegations from People’s Republic of China and Republic of India

On July 19 the Rosselkhoznadzor held a meeting with representatives of the National Plant Quarantine and Protection Organizations of China and India on the margins of the 75th regular Session of the World Trade Organization Committee for Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures. The talks were focused on ensuring phytosanitary safety in mutual supply of plant products.

The Russian side expressed concern about the systematic detection cases of quarantine objects in deliveries of regulated products from China to Russia. In particular, in 2018 quarantine objects were detected in 32 cases, while the Chinese side took measures with regard to some notifications only.

The Russian delegation handed over the Rosselkhoznadzor’s inquiries to the Chinese side that is expected to provide answers in the near future, as well as a list of Russian producers interested in supplying barley to China, and grain storage facilities.

Due to the interest of Russian producers the Service requested special phytosanitary quarantine requirements for import of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers to China from Russia.

During the meeting with the Indian delegation, explanations were given on the EAEU requirements for import of products that are susceptible to Striga spp. The Rosselkhoznadzor representatives stressed that the phytosanitary certificate must contain information in accordance with the Uniform quarantine phytosanitary requirements approved by Decision of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission No. 157 of November 30, 2016. While discussing the possibility of supplying potatoes from India to Russia the representatives of the Rosselkhoznadzor indicated the need for potato supplies from zones, places, production sites free from 18 organisms quarantinable for the Eurasian Economic Union.
