Russia Drafts Regulations for GE Feed

July 26, 2017

The Ministry of Agriculture of Russia drafted nine regulatory documents regarding safety assessment and testing of genetically engineered products used in feed, feed additives, and veterinary pharmaceuticals. It also drafted documents for GE animals and microorganisms. The functions of the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (VPSS) in the assessment and testing were also drafted in a regulatory document.

The documents were drafted based on the Government Resolution No. 839 of September 23, 2013, which mandated the Ministry to develop a system for registration of feeds. Once the drafted documents are adopted, these will have an impact on the development and trade of agricultural biotechnology products and veterinary pharmaceuticals in Russia.
