Violators of grain export rules to be deprived of access to verification for six months – Solsky
Entrepreneurs will be deprived of verification rights for six months for violating the rules for exporting agricultural products to some countries of the European Union, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Mykola Solsky said.
As the ministry's press service reported on Facebook, Solsky, during an online meeting with the Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Republic of Bulgaria, Kiril Vatev, informed that the Ukrainian government had adopted a resolution that improved the rules for the export of certain types of agricultural products to prevent abuse.
"Now an enterprise can be excluded from the list of verified entities of the agro-industrial complex if information is received from Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary or Poland that products loaded for transit through these countries actually remained in one of these countries," the press service of the Minister of Agricultural Policy said.
They explained and gave an example that if, according to the documents, the sunflower went to Greece, but was sold in Bulgaria, then the entrepreneur will be excluded from the list of verified subjects of the agro-industrial complex. You will be able to re-apply for inclusion in the list of verified entities no earlier than six months after exclusion.
Vatev supported the decision of the Ukrainian government, noting that it will contribute to effective cooperation between the countries. The ministers agreed to monitor carriers' compliance with the rules and control the movement of agricultural products to Bulgaria.
