Russia: Delisting Double-Take - VPSS Cancels New Order

On February 15, 2017, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (VPSS) issued a press release cancelling its February 2, 2017 Order concerning suspension and delisting of selected establishments from its Register of approved suppliers of goods subject to veterinary control, including meat, poultry and seafood. The reason provided for delisting was the absence of shipments to the Russian Federation in over 36 months, which did not allow VPSS “to monitor the safety and quality” of the suppliers’ products. The measure went into effect on February 10, when VPSS dropped hundreds of eligible suppliers from its online Register and marked others “suspended”. After announcing cancellation of the order, VPSS restored its earlier online Register.
