Russian Federation: Draft Customs Union Amendments to Veterinary Requirements

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), the regulatory body of the Russia-Kazakhstan-Belarus Customs Union (CU), published a new draft document amending the CU veterinary requirements. In particular, the document specifies the requirements for botulinum toxin in feeds, and adds a new chapter 42 with requirements for the import of laboratory animals. There is a 60-day EEC public comment period, starting August 6, 2014, and ending October 6, 2014. Interested U.S. parties are encouraged to share their comments and/or concerns with USDA’s enquiry point (us.spsenquirypoint@fas.usda.gov).

As of the date of publication of this report, FAS/Moscow does not believe this measure has been notified to the World Trade Organization.
