Goods (products) subject to phytosanitary control

Eurasian Economic Commission Council Draft Decision "On Amendments to Certain Decisions of the Customs Union Commission and the Eurasian Economic Commission Council". Language(s): Russian. Number of pages: 2

The Draft provides for the amendment of the List of quarantined products (quarantined freights, quarantined materials, quarantined goods) subject to quarantine phytosanitary control (supervision) at the customs border of the Eurasian Economic Union and in the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union (hereinafter "the List") approved by the Customs Union Commission Decision dated 18 June 2010 No. 318 in terms of transferring the position "Unmanufactured tobacco and tobacco refuse" (the HS code 2401 of the Common Commodity Nomenclature of Foreign Economic Activity of the Eurasian Economic Union) from Part II of the List "Quarantined products (quarantined freights, quarantined materials, quarantined goods) with a low phytosanitary risk" to Part I of the List "Quarantined products (quarantined freights, quarantined materials, quarantined goods) with a high phytosanitary risk". The amendment does not provide for the increase of the list of goods.

The Draft also provides for the following quarantine phytosanitary requirements for the above mentioned products: "must come from places and (or) production sites free from the polyphagous humpback fly (Megaselia scalaris (Loew))" due to the fact that this type of plant product can potentially serve as a pathway for the introduction and spread of harmful organisms in the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union.
