Phytosanitary control of certain products should take into account the risk-oriented approach - SSUFSCP




Phytosanitary control of certain products in Ukraine should be based on observance of the principles of risk-oriented approach, declared the Head of the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection (SSUFSCP), Volodymyr Lapa at the second conference "Grain exports from Ukraine" on November 2, in Kyiv.

According to him, there are certain types of products which require 100% phytosanitary monitoring, such as pellets. Using of such products should have a risk-based approach: if an economic entity carefully keeps up with the phytosanitary requirements of the country of destination, and inspection of the product does not reveal any non-compliance with the requirements, then the share of monitoring will reduce from 100% to 50% or even lower.

V.Lapa explained that a responsible entrepreneur should have a more liberal regime for phytosanitary security, but the control for offenders should be hard, on the contrary.

He stressed that the SSUFSCP plans to work out such procedure for execution of phytosanitary monitoring for certain products, based on the risk-oriented approach.
