Russia implements certificate for poultry imports from US



The Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan and US veterinary service have arranged a veterinary certificate for poultry-farming products from the United States.


Russian authorities characterised this step an important milestone in the developing of trade relations in poultry sector between two countries. According to the head of the Russian veterinary watchdog, Sergei Dankvert, with the appropriate system of certification, the issue of resumption of deliveries of meat into Custom Union, and in particular, turkey meat, could be resolved very quickly.


The certificate, approved following negotiations with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), applies to the export from the US of newly hatched chicks, turkeys, ducklings, goslings, ostrich chicks, and the incubated eggs of these birds, the EEC website says.


The document has been forwarded to the authorised agencies in the Customs Union and US for signing.
