Rosselkhoznadzor Held Negotiations with Ministry of Agriculture of Republic of Kazakhstan on Integration of Information Systems in the Field of Veterinary Surveillance of Both Countries
The negotiations between the Rosselkhoznadzor and the
Veterinary Control and Supervision Committee of the Ministry of Agriculture of
the Republic of Kazakhstan were held via videoconference on April, 1.
The parties discussed the process of integration of
information systems in the field of veterinary supervision in Russia and
Kazakhstan – FGIS "VetIS" and EASU APK (the system of the Republic of
Kazakhstan used for issuing electronic veterinary certificates for products).
The Russian Authority said that in order to continue work in this direction it is
expecting from its Kazakh colleagues a list of all establishments supplying
livestock products to the territory of Russia. As it was explained in the
Rosselkhoznadzor, this is required for including the abovementioned register in
the FGIS "VetIS". The representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture
of Kazakhstan said that they are currently updating the list and will try to
send it to the Service by April 10.
The Russian party inquired whether the information on
regulated goods transported through checkpoints on the border of Kazakhstan
from other countries to the territory of the Russian Federation is displayed in
the EACU APK system. The information is necessary to understand how well the
traceability of products is ensured during such movements. The technical
specialists of the Republic promised to prepare an answer to the question using
the example of specific shipments supplied to Russia through Kazakhstan from
third countries, and send it to the Russian authority.
The Rosselkhoznadzor also proposed to the Kazakh colleagues
to use the Rosselkhoznadzor-developed “Mercury. Notifications” subsystem in
order to trace the goods moved to Kazakhstan from other EAEU member states. In
particular, the matter concerns Armenia and Kyrgyzstan, which are currently
developing their own information systems in the field of veterinary
surveillance, but these countries use the "Mercury. Notifications"
platform when shipping livestock products abroad and enter the data on
consignments in it. The Committee of Veterinary Control and Surveillance of the
Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan will be able to use the opportunity to
trace the products supplied to the Republic starting from April 5.
The parties agreed to continue discussing the raised issues
in the near future.
