The decision came after the regulator received numerous petitions from the largest Russian feed manufacturers and industry unions. The regulator also considered the materials regularly provided by foreign competent authorities.
Import permits have been granted for the following products:
— dried blood animal plasma produced by a British manufacturer APC (GB) Ltd.;
— meat and bone meal produced by two Dutch manufacturers Sonac Burgum B.V. and Sonac Vuren B.V.;
— pork meal produced by a German manufacturer Sonac Lingen GmbH.
Also, import permits for feeds and feed additives have been granted to German manufacturers ADDCON Europe GmbH, MIAVIT GmbH, Kaesler Nutrition GmbH, Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe Gmbh, Symrise GmbH & Co.KG, BEWITAL agri GmbH&Co. KG; British manufacturers ADM Protexin® Ltd; and Dutch manufacturers Peti B.V, Vendrig Liquid Solution B.V., Perstorp Waspik B.V., FF Chemicals BV, Joosten Products B.V.
Thus, certificates of 95 companies have been renewed (352 product names).
“To secure the resumption of feed and feed additives imports to Russia, foreign producers are required to provide Rosselkhoznadzor with confirmation issued by a competent authority of the country of origin, which certifies that a specific manufacturing facility and the animal feed produced by the facility meet the applicable requirements and standards of the Russian Federation and the EAEU. However, until now, some producers have not yet provided the confirmations from their competent authorities, despite the request of Rosselkhoznadzor and deadline extension for submitting materials until March 25, 2022,” emphasized the spokesperson for the regulator.
In addition, Rosselkhoznadzor continues to record violations with undeclared ingredients on the label including for those products that have been already permitted for importation at the request of the Russian business community.
