Rosselkhoznadzor’s Consultations with the Faroese Food and Veterinary Authority

Telephone talks between the Deputy Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Konstantin Savenkov and Executive Director of the Faroese Food and Veterinary Authority Bardur Enni were held on August 14 this year.

The consultations were devoted to building cooperation in the field of e-certification system application in case of animal product export from Faroese establishments to Russia.

Konstantin Savenkov informed that the Rosselkhoznadzor has been developing a set of veterinary information systems for many years and the special attention was given to e-certification program for controlled consignments. By 2018 e-certification of animal products will have been implemented throughout Russia and will become compulsory. The Rosselkhoznadzor is also actively developing cooperation with other countries – trade partners in the field of e-certification system implementation which allows immediate confirmation of the consignment origin and minimizes document falsification and product smuggling. Besides, as such practice of cooperation with third countries shows, e-certification makes data exchange process much easier and curtails the time required for issuing and checking documents.

Discussing the advantages of transition to the new form of cooperation the Rosselkhoznadzor also remarked that it will partially satisfy the request of the Faroese side to ease the process of certifying products exported to Russia as it will make it possible for a veterinarian to issue documents at the production facilities and the official inspector, being at a different place, to attest them on-line.

Bardur Enni expressed readiness to start working in this area. The parties aggreed to hold a videoconference between technical specialists in the nearest time to present the system developed by the Rosselkhoznadzor and discuss further cooperation.

During the talks the parties also gave attention to issues of safety of fish products exported to Russia. In particular they discussed a case when banned and harmful substances were detected in products exported by a Faroese establishment to Russia. Bardur Enni mentioned that the Veterinary Service was investigating the reason for export of products noncompliant with the EEU veterinary and sanitary norms. The results of the investigation will be forwarded to the Rosselkhoznadzor in the nearest time.
