Starting from January 1, 2021, the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) allowed the imports of dried fruits from the Fergana region of the Republic of Uzbekistan. According to the press release, the decision of Rosselkhoznadzor is based on the results of negotiations with the State Plant Quarantine Inspectorate under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the guarantees, the Uzbek side provided.
Rosselkhoznadzor introduced restrictions in early December because of a pest found in a batch of dried apricots, namely the khapra beetle (Trogoderma granarium).
The Federal Service also points out that now the supply of dried fruits will be carried out with the obligatory indication of the manufacturer’s name and address in phytosanitary certificates and on the product labelling.
Also, each batch of dried fruits arriving from the Fergana region of Uzbekistan will be accompanied by a preliminary electronic notification and laboratory test protocols confirming the products’ phytosanitary safety.
