Rosselkhoznadzor Held Negotiations with Brazilian Competent Authority on Supply of Livestock Products to Russia

The Rosselkhoznadzor negotiations with the Department of Inspection of Animal Origin Products (DIPOA) were held in Moscow on July 24, 2018. The meeting was attended by experts from the Rosselkhoznadzor and subordinated to the Rosselkhoznadzor FGBI VGNKI, as well as representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

The key topic of the dialogue was the discussion of the results of the Brazilian investigation regarding the presence of ractopamine adrenostimulant in products from four livestock breeding establishments of Brazil. In this connection, after repeated detections of this substance in Brazilian livestock products the Service imposed a ban on supply of beef and pork and offal thereof from Brazil to Russia in December 2017.

The Brazilian side presented the results of the investigation to the Russian side, but no documentary evidence was provided. The Rosselkhoznadzor specialists noted that in order to thoroughly consider this issue and analyze potential risks the Brazilian colleagues need to send an official letter to the Service about the results of the investigation, as well as information on the implementation of state veterinary surveillance at establishments. In addition, the Brazilian side will send a plan on monitoring and measure implementation to the Rosselkhoznadzor, that will enable the Brazilian competent authority to further guarantee the absence of ractopamine in its export products.

The Brazilian colleagues reported that they would provide the concerned information the next week.

At the end of the meeting the parties agreed to continue cooperation in the working order at the level of technical specialists.
