Grain and Oilseeds
The State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumers Protection (SFSS) has worked out the proposal of the EBA Grain and Oilseeds Committee and on 12 December 2018 provided guidelines to the SFSS’s regional offices clarifying the procedure of issuing written notes to phytosanitary certificates.
This solution is important to ensure smooth exports of grain and oilseeds overseas. It should be noted that notes to phytosanitary certificates usually contain information required by international partners. In addition, we want to emphasize that issuing notes that accompany phytosanitary certificates is a common international grain trading practice regulated in accordance with 2 paragraph of the International Plant Protection Convention No.12.
The European Business Association would like to express its gratitude to representatives of the SFSS for open dialogue and prompt processing of grain business proposals.
