Scandinavian Fish Learns Customs Union Rules

A story with the Russia's ban of Norwegian fish continues.

Recently, the supervisory authorities of Norway and Finland notified Rosselkhoznadzor of restriction introduced for two fishing companies that exported fish to the Russian market. According to the Finnish Food Safety (Evira), a ban was imposed on the export by Savon Taimen Oy, No. F68651, due to its failure to meet sanitary and veterinary requirements of Russia and Customs Union.
As reported by the Rosselkhoznadzor's press-service, they received a notice from the Norwegian State Service for Food Control (Mattilsynet) of veterinary certificates termination for fish products export from the company M-343. In a course of further testing it was found that the procedure of microbiological sampling and laboratory testing at the plant did not meet the requirements of the Customs Union. In addition, Mattilsynet informed the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance of the termination of the company M-108, and therefore it should be removed from the register of companies approved to export fish and seafood to Russia. It's obvious that Norwegian authorities are looking forward to the renewal of fish exports to Russia and therefore are taking all possible measures to meet the requirements of Rosselkhoznadzor.
So hopefully the situation will soon get back to its "status quo".
