Grain and Oilseeds
On March 20, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted in the first reading the Draft Law No. 6673 “On amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine concerning the settlement of certain phytosanitary procedures”.
Over the long term, this initiative will allow:
- expanding the network of laboratories;
- reducing the time of the relevant procedures;
- avoiding duplication of operations;
- improving the quality of phytosanitary procedures and minimizing the costs and risks for agrarian enterprises.
For several years, the EBA Grain & Oilseed Committee has been emphasizing the necessity to demonopolize and deregulate the field of phytosanitary laboratory services.
We are convinced that the proposed innovations will contribute to the optimization of the phytosanitary control system with account to growing volumes of production and export of crops.
We are waiting for the prompt preparation of the Draft Law No. 6673 for the second reading and its further support by the Members of the Parliament!
