  • Government improves state control over imports of food and animal feed products
    Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, posted 10 October 2019 15:51

    On October 9, the Government approved a resolution on approving the Procedure for Establishing Special Conditions for Importing of Food and Animal Feed Products, Strengthening the Control over Import (Shipment) of Goods Under the Control of the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection to the Customs Territory of Ukraine.

    The approved Procedure clearly determines the conditions under which import restrictions (special conditions) may be imposed and which restrictions. However, the decision to establish and abolish special import conditions is not taken by the competent control authority, as it was before the approval of the Procedure, but by the policy-making body in the industry (Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine).

    Approval of the document will help to increase the effectiveness of state control over the imports of food and animal feed products across the border of Ukraine, eliminate or reduce the level of threat associated with the risk of the presence of a dangerous factor in the products being imported (shipped) to the customs territory of Ukraine and eliminate unnecessary obstacles in the process of import procedures.
