Rosselkhoznadzor Held Teleconference with General Administration of Customs of P.R.C.

4 June 2020, Thursday

The teleconference between the representatives of the Rosselkhoznadzor and the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC of the P.R.C.) took place on June 3. The officials of the Trade Representation of Russia in China also participated in the talks.

The Russian side thanked the Chinese colleagues for harmonizing a new model of the veterinary certificate for export of poultry meat to the PRC. This model will be published on the Rosselkhoznadzor official website as soon as the decision is made on the date of its entry into force.

Additionally, the Rosselkhoznadzor proposed to the GACC to implement a new approach in the near future, meaning a special QR code assigned to the documents for the specified products. By scanning it, the representatives of the Chinese authority will be able to verify the authenticity of the certificate. At the same time, the Rosselkhoznadzor explained to the Chinese party that the accompanying documents for regulated goods exported to China will be generated in the special VetIS.eCert system developed by the Russian authority. The certificates issued on this platform and having QR codes will be printed out and forwarded with the products to China. The Chinese experts supported this idea.

The Rosselkhoznadzor representatives also suggested discussing the possibility of Russian and Chinese information system integration in order to exchange veterinary certificates for animal products in electronic form. The foreign colleagues reported that they are currently exchanging electronic accompanying documents for regulated goods with Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands and are ready to consider cooperation with Russia in this area.

The Rosselkhoznadzor promised to forward an official proposal regarding this issue in the near future.

In addition, the representatives of the General Administration of Customs of the P.R.C. inquired about the conditions for the import of casings into Russia and whether it is possible to transit meat products delivered from European countries to China through the Russian Federation. The Rosselkhoznadzor promised to provide requirements for the supply of these products and a document specifying the conditions for the transit of regulated goods.

The negotiators thanked each other for discussing the raised issues and noted the importance of their solution.
