Products from Kyrgyzstan in most cases not pass phytosanitary control

Products from Kyrgyzstan most often don’t pass phytosanitary control upon importation in Novosibirsk region, the press service of the Rosselkhoznadzor department in the region reported.

According to it, over 200 tons of quarantine products — 147.15 tons from Kyrgyzstan, 62.35 tons from Kazakhstan and 20 tons from Uzbekistan, failed to be passed to Novosibirsk region from the territory of Kazakhstan in March.

Products were transported by road for sale in Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Krasnoyarsk, Surgut, Khabarovsk and Chita.

However, when carrying out quarantine phytosanitary control, it was established that batches of high phytosanitary risk products, including apples, pomegranates, tomatoes, dried fruits, poppy seeds, onion, and radish, sorrel, assorted greens, hay and straw, were transported without corresponding documents, confirming phytosanitary safety, or without marking on packages.

In accordance with the requirements of international quarantine legislation, the import of all products to the territory of the Russian Federation was banned. The cargo was returned to the senders.
