30.01.2017

With the aim of reducing import of plant protection products (plant protection products) on the territory of the EEU will develop new measures of regulation of import, according to the website of the Russian Ministry of agriculture.

 The need to introduce new measures of regulation of import of plant protection products was declared by the first Deputy Minister of agriculture of Russia Dzhambulat Hatuov at a working meeting.

Currently, import duties on SZR is set at the highest possible level (in accordance with WTO rules). Import on territory of Russia of pesticides is carried out under license of the Ministry of industry and trade and permission of the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation.

    "We must work together with all interested market participants to develop a document, which will reflect the necessity of applying restrictions on the importation of pesticides on the territory of our country", — said Dzhambulat Hatuov.

The main objective of the new rules of regulation of import of plant protection products should be the prevention of penetration on the territory of the EAEU of counterfeit products. As one of the possible measures was called the tightening of registration requirements during the examination of pesticides.

    "We will fight for the security of coming to our country the means of protection of plants, to detect fraud and prevent their importation", — said the first Deputy Minister.

Dzhambulat Hatuov also noted the need to identify competitive production of crop protection products among Russian producers and support them.
