MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Federal Consumer Rights Protection and Human Health Control Service Rospotrebnadzor since the beginning of 2013 banned the import from Japan of 112 nuclear contaminated batches of automobiles and other kinds of machinery, says a report of the service.
These consignments included 80 used cars, 30 batches of spares and two water and specialized vehicles. Since 2011, listed as banned for import were 826 consignments of automobiles and automobile equipment, including 521 used cars, 282 automobile spares, and 23 consignments of motor boats and yachts.
Nuclear contamination of equipment is a result of the accident at Japan’s Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant in 2011. Rospotrebnadzor in 2013 examined 135,706 consignments of cargos from Japan.
The report says that the Japanese side was informed more than once about nuclear contamination of consignments. Measures to remedy this were required. No response has yet come from Japan, says the report.
Rospotrebnadzor intends to continue discussing the problem with related bodies to find the ways to settle it.
