MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Russia may lift ban on import of fish products from Latvia within the next 2 weeks, the Ministry of Agriculture reported after talks with Minister Alexander Tkachev and his Latvian counterpart Janis Duklavs.
"We will consider the reports submitted by our Latvian colleagues within 2 weeks and restrictions will be lifted in case there are no violations," Tkachev was quoted as saying.
As was reported earlier Russia’s Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) suspended imports of canned fish products made by Latvian enterprises starting from August 1, 2015. Repeated studies of canned fish products made at these plants "revealed violations of consumer protection legislation," the body reported. In particular, the studies revealed "discrepancy in requirements for labeling, discrepancy weight fraction of the core product, discrepancy of the mass fraction of the components of the basic product, discrepancy in terms of energy value and organoleptic characteristics." Also, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor), another body regulating Russia’s consumer market, totally banned import of fish preserves from Latvia starting from June 4, 2015 due to violations dangerous for people’s life detected in the production.
