EBA Retail Committee members met with representatives of State Food Security Service, namely Mr Andrii Zhuk, First Deputy Head, and Mr Vadym Chaikovskyi, Head of Plant Quarantine Department.
At the meeting, we discussed issues of quarantine certificates for regulated products.
Finally, participants agreed to give their proposals for the harmonization of the Law of Ukraine “On Plant Quarantine” and Phytosanitary rules. In their turn, the Service representatives agreed to consider the introduction of interactive map of quarantine areas and defining retailers as areas free of regulated pests.
EBA Retail Committee thanks the Service for the constructive dialogue and openness to cooperation!
