Ukraine and the EU in negotiation over poultry products trade

Ukraine and the EU are currently negotiating over trade in poultry products, the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection (SSUFSCP) reports.

"Following the results of the video-conference with DG SANTE held on September 18th, in order to prevent possible impact on the trade regime with the EU, the SSUFSCP proposed to the European Commission for consideration drafts of 2 international certificates: for import of minced and/or deboned chicken meat from the European Union into the customs territory of Ukraine, as well as for import of minced and/or deboned chicken meat from Ukraine to the EU. Agreements on the coordination of these documents have been reached," the statement reads.

This issue is now under consideration by DG SANTE.

Under the European Union Association Agreement, Ukraine has undertaken to bring its national legislation closer to the EU legislation (the EU acquis), including in the field of sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures.

At present, unified forms of veterinary certificates for import of milk and dairy products, as well as collagen and/or gelatin, have been agreed upon, which are valid for all 28 EU member states.

Earlier it was reported that Turkey, Poland and the Netherlands dominated tomato export to Ukraine in January-August 2019.
