The EEU regulation. The Kyrgyz authorities, represented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Industry and Land Reclamation, conducted explanatory work among 120 enterprises whose products can be exported to the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). This was done before the entry into force of 18 technical regulations of the EEU, adopted for exporting enterprises of the countries of the Union.
Eight of technical regulations that come into force on August 12, 2017, regulate the safety of food products. In accordance with this, since April of this year, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Industry and Land Reclamation of Kyrgyzstan, together with the ministries of economy and health, as well as departments for phyto-and veterinary security, conducted informative activities on new requirements of technical regulations. These activities were held jointly with the media, as well as at the production sites, regardless of whether the enterprise is orienting for export or not.
Food producers were informed in accordance with the provisions of the technical regulations - on the safe production of goods and their labeling, packaging and preparation for export to the market, as well as on storage and transportation of goods.
The requirements of the technical regulations concern the production of juices, oils, cereals, dairy and meat products, as well as the use of food additives in production.
But technical regulations are not a hindrance. The Government of Kyrgyzstan believes that with the entry into force of 18 technical regulations of the EEU and the Customs Union from August 12, 2017, nothing drastic should occur in the country. At the same time, the state will not strengthen supervision over the implementation of technical regulations by enterprises.
At the same time, a warning was issued that the control over malicious non-executors of requirements will be tightened, and in general order of supervision will not change in the domestic market. The entry into force of 18 technical regulations provides for the change of only registration issues.
