GORKI, July 4. /TASS/.Russian veterinary and phytosanitary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor and Russian consumer protection regulator Rospotrebnadzor will create a common foods quality and safety database, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Monday.
The information system will contain data concerning origin of raw materials for food production, ingredients and additives used, the official said.
At the same time, total traceability of production quality is technically impossible, Dvorkovich said. "The need exists to change the control and supervision system, that is, to make a transition to the risk-focused approach, in order to trace products throughout the process of production, distribution and sales regularly and depending on the risk degree," he said.
"A common base of laboratory research and tests of foods will also be set up within the framework of quality monitoring. It will be created in the system of institutions of Rosselkhoznadzor, Rospotrebnadzor, and the Russian Academy of Sciences," Dvorkovich added.
"Proposals and draft regulatory acts will be prepared, which stipulate extension of requirements to quality and safety of foods in technical regulations and other regulatory legislative acts," the official said.
Russia has actually lost production of food ingredients and additives but it will be restored in accordance with the foods quality improvement strategy approved by the prime minister, Dvorkovich said.
Advance studies to create foods meeting current requirements are stipulated within the strategy framework, he added.
