In connection with the expected seasonal increase in fruit and vegetable sales, the Federal Customs Service of Russia held a meeting on the compliance of the participants in foreign economic activity with the requirements and norms for the proper implementation of conformity assessment procedures.
The meeting was attended by Sergei Shklyaev, head of the Department for Trade Restrictions, Currency and Export Controls of the Federal Customs Service of Russia, deputy head Sergey Migin, president of the AIPP Irina Kapitanova and president of ACORT Sergei Belyakov.
A special emphasis during the meeting was made that compliance with mandatory requirements for conformity assessment procedures would not only ensure the safety of imported products, but would also shorten the time for customs operations and minimize the costs of traders.
Representatives of government agencies drew the attention of the heads of associations to the need for compliance by participants in foreign trade activities with the rules for filling out declarations of compliance, including the mandatory indication of information that makes it possible to identify the imported products.
The leaders of the AIPP and AKORT, in turn, supported the need to observe the rights of the Eurasian Economic Union and declared their readiness to fulfill the mandatory requirements.
