The EEC in the framework of its authorizations adopted the basic necessary documents on the issues of the veterinary and sanitary control of the animal-originating production in compliance with the Agreement on the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

The systems of the veterinary and sanitary control of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia have been considered equal to each other, the EEC states. All the actions of the authorized bodies of the parties in the sphere of the veterinary control (surveillance) are regularized by the decision of the Commission of the Customs Union dated June 18, 2010 No. 317, leading from which, the veterinary control and surveillance of part of the ready-made animal products is carried out only with regard to the epizootic welfare.

The service believes that the production manufactured in the country does not meet the requirements of the technical regulations of the EAEU.
