Ukraine: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

There have been significant changes affecting agricultural product quality, safety, and sanitary regulations since the submission of the last report. In 2015, Ukraine deregulated some food safety import procedures and significantly modified its food safety legislation introducing HACCP principles. Ukraine also introduced new international certificate requirements for food products and reinforced its legislation related to the approval of foreign exporting facilities. The Ukrainian Veterinary and Phytosanitary Service assumed responsibilities as national competent authority for all products of animal origin, food products and feeds. Created in 2014 State Service on Safety of Foodstuffs and Consumer Protection is expected to become functional in 2016.
