The EBA Food Committee appealed to the State Food Security Service concerning the necessity to provide explanatory notes to its regional divisions regarding the implementation of new provisions of the Article 53 of the Law of Ukraine №771/97-ВР «On main principles and requirements to the safety and quality of food».There were certain changes related to the abolition of the requirement for the mandatory accompaniment of international certificates of certain composite products, imported or transmitted through the customs territory of Ukraine.
We are glad to inform that the State Food Security Service clarified the timing for entering into force certain provisions of the Law of Ukraine №2042-VIII dated 18 May 2017. You can get familiar with the letter via the link.
The EBA thanks for such prompt response to the State Food Security Service. Businesses hope that these novelties will simplify the control on cargos on the customs territory of Ukraine.
