Astana, Kazakhstan, April 22
By Daniyar Mukhtarov - Trend:
Integration will ensure free transportation of Kazakh meat in the territory of the Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC) member-states, deputy chairman of the veterinary control and supervision committee Mereke Taitubayev said on April 21.
"We get the free transportation of livestock production on the territory of the EurAsEC member- states on the basis of the common veterinary requirements, veterinary documents, mutually recognized by all sides," Taitubayev said at a briefing in the Central Communications Service under the Kazakh president.
"The elimination of customs, trade and technical barriers will reduce costs and have a positive impact on the growth of trade turnover among enterprises of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia," he added.
He recalled that the Customs Union's agreement on veterinary and sanitary measures was signed in the field veterinary medicine five years ago. The veterinarians from Kazakhstan, Belarus and Russia must work together to prevent outbreaks of highly dangerous animal diseases.
"This agreement also reduced the number of mandatory procedures required for the meat trade among our countries," he said. "The veterinary service of Kazakhstan, Belarus and Russia may conduct inspection. Its "verdict" will be recognized by the colleagues from the EurAsEC member- states."
"The veterinary certificate, drawn in any region of Kazakhstan, is valid in Russia and Belarus," he said. "This eliminates the laboratory study."
The integration over the past five years allowed specialists of the three countries to work out the common rules for the use of veterinary medications on the territory of the Customs Union.
"Previously, it was necessary to pass a special registration to sell a particular medication on the territory of Kazakhstan," he added. "Today there is no such necessity."
