Following the online meeting of Rosselkhoznadzor (RSN) with pet industry representatives, the regulator announced the extension of the transition period for three months (until December 25), during which the competent authorities of the exporting countries should carry out a number of corrective measures. The regulator's decision is explained by the fact that not all veterinary services of the supplier countries managed to provide a complete list of the requested documents during the given time of three months, although they had reported that they were actively preparing them.\r\n\r\nAt the same time, after the resumption of certification of pet food and food additives from 66 foreign enterprises, serious violations were detected in the products of 8 companies. In particular, undeclared and unregistered GMO components were found in the products of the following enterprises:\r\nAltromin Spezialfutter GmbH&Co. KG (Germany);\r\nElmira Pet Products Ltd and CD-07 PLB International Inc. (Canada);\r\nPLB International Inc. (Canada).\r\nThose companies are not allowed to export pet food and food additives to Russia starting from October 4, 2021.\r\n\r\nMoreover, the Rosselkhoznadzor is strengthening control over the supply of pet food from 5 foreign enterprises. Those factories are not in the list of the suppliers whose import permit is extended until December, 25th, due to the fact that their products were found to be inconsistent with the raw material composition stated on the labels:\r\nFr\u00f6schle Petfood GmbH (Germany);\r\nLandguth Heimtiernahrung GmbH (Germany);\r\nMera Tiernahrung GmbH (Germany);\r\nSaturn Petcare GmbH (Germany);\r\nVisan Industrias Zootecnicas, S. L (Spain).
