MOSCOW, December 22. /TASS/. Russia’s veterinary and phytosanitary authority Rosselkhoznadzor said on Monday it will toughen requirements for imports of live poultry and hatching eggs from Germany over bird flu outbreaks.
The ban is applicable to imports of poultry and eggs from the Cloppenburg district over an outbreak of H5N8 bird flu that was registered there on December 22, 2014. Veterinary certificates on imports of live poultry and eggs from other German districts should be sustained by a supplement attested by the chief sanitary doctor.
Russia’s ban on imports of food products from a number of European countries imposed on August 7, 2014 in response to the Western sanctions against Russia was not applicable to pedigree animals.
