MOSCOW, July 31 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Control has lifted temporary restrictions on supplies of Norwegian sturgeon and trout to Russia.
“Based on the analysis of five enterprises specialists of the Customs Union confirmed that Rosselkhoznadzor believes it expedient to lift temporary restrictions on Norwegian sturgeon and trout supplies to Russia. Fish supplies should be certified on the spot in compliance with the norms of international law,” Rosselkhoznadzor’s press service reported.
On April 28, 2012 the Russian service decided to impose temporary restrictions on fish import to Russia from 13 Norwegian enterprises.
Such decision was taken due to the fact that the service revealed the inconformity of Norwegian products to the rules of Russia and the Customs Union.
