Rosselkhoznadzor Discussed Issues of Integration of Plant Quarantine Information Systems of Two Countries with Serbian Colleagues
On October 16, the Rosselkhoznadzor held talks with Director of the Plant Protection Directorate of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of the Republic of Serbia Nebojsa Milosavljevic through video-conferencing. The representatives of the Rosselkhoznadzor subordinate FGBI “All-Russian Plant Quarantine Center” (FGBI “VNIIKR”) participated in the meeting.
The participants of the talks addressed the subject of integration of the Russian information system developed by the Rosselkhoznadzor (FGIS “Argus-Phyto”) with a similar platform functioning in Serbia. This process will make it possible to interchange phytosanitary documents for regulated products shipped from the Russian Federation to Serbia and from Serbia to Russia in electronic format.
The parties discussed the timeframe for the integration of the two systems. The Serbian colleagues noted that it could be done in spring next year.
The Russian authority recalled that the scheme of interaction during the electronic phytosanitary certificate interchange had been forwarded earlier. The Serbian party expressed readiness to work in accordance with it.
The participants of the meeting agreed to establish a closer contact between the technical specialists of the two countries to address all the issues arising in the course of integration.
