This decision was made based on the results of the quarantine phytosanitary examination of samples of products selected during the joint video inspections, and under the guarantees of Azerbaijan’s Food Safety Agency.

Up until now, the relevant Russian authorities lifted the ban on import for 152 tomato producer companies operating in Azerbaijan. On June 29, Rosselkhoznadzor and Azerbaijan’s Food Security Agency discussed the new amendments to the Russian legislation, according to which Rosselkhoznadzor will carry out state control in the field of safe circulation of pesticides and agrochemicals and their impact on bilateral trade.

It should be noted that Azerbaijan Food Safety Agency and relevant agencies are taking joint measures to lift restrictions on the tomatoes and apple export from Azerbaijan to Russia.
