The Rosselkhoznadzor Discussed with the Egyptian side the Verification of the Authenticity of Phytosanitary Certificates Used for Mutual Trade in Plant Products

On September 27, the Rosselkhoznadzor held videoconference talks with the Head of the Central Administration of Plant Quarantine under the Ministry of Agriculture of the Arab Republic of Egypt Ahmed El-Attar. The event was also attended by the Head of the Commercial Office of the Embassy of Egypt in the Russian Federation, Yasser Mustafa.

The parties discussed mutual access to phytosanitary certification systems for plant products in order to confirm their authenticity.

Ahmed El-Attar said that the Central Administration of Plant Quarantine will provide Rosselkhoznadzor with access to a server where Russian specialists will be able to verify the authenticity of any phytosanitary certificate issued by a foreign agency for regulated plant goods delivered to consignees in the Russian Federation.

He also informed his colleagues about the last stage in the development of an information system designed to automate the processes of preparation and accounting of phytosanitary surveillance documents in Egypt.

According to the Head of the Central Administration of Plant Quarantine, the new system will be put into operation early next year.

In turn, the Rosselkhoznadzor will provide the Egyptian side with a link to the module for checking phytosanitary documents issued by the Service in the FGIS ARGUS-PHYTO.

The Russian agency is confident that the modernization of the document authorization processes will significantly reduce the time for processing quarantined consignments.

The parties agreed to start discussing the work plan for the integration of information systems of the two countries after the commissioning of such a system in Egypt.
