Ukraine has updated the requirements to import of animals and livestock products, the press service of the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumers’ Protection has reported.
According to the report, Ukraine introduces the principle of zoning, when the import of livestock products is allowed from some zones, if not the entire territory of the country is free from animal diseases. Also, the new rules provide for a smaller number of diagnostic studies of live animals on the territory of the exporting country, which will reduce the financial burden on the importing company.
In addition, the requirements for the food producer have been eliminated, so that raw materials originate exclusively from the territory of the exporting country, and new categories of products are added. In particular, the requirements for the import of gelatin, collagen, colostrum, frog legs, snails and another 33 products were set.
According to the press service of the food service, the Ministry of Agricultural Policy and Food approved the relevant resolution in November 2018, and the Justice Ministry registered it on April 4, 2019. The resolution comes into force six months after publication.
