Russia: Draft Amendments to Veterinary Requirements Notified to WTO

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On January 9, 2020, Russia notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) of draft amendments to the unified veterinary requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) via G/SPS/N/RUS/175. The proposed measure removes many (but not all) exceptions from the uniform EAEU veterinary requirements currently enjoyed by Belarus regarding the use of veterinary measures for low risk products. The public comment period for the draft will close on March 9, 2020. Interested U.S. parties are encouraged to share their comments and/or concerns with USDA’s enquiry point (us.spsenquirypoint@fas.usda.gov). For potential inclusion in the U.S. official position, please send your comments by February 24, 2020. This report contains an unofficial translation of the proposed measure.
