Russian ban on rice import from Pakistan, India to continue
MOSCOW: The Russian media reported Thursday that Russia's Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service (VPSS) will retain the ban on rice imports from Vietnam, India and Pakistan, imposed in early December 2006.

Sergey Dankvert, Director of VPSS, said that the Government of Russia would not import rice until the rice supply countries provide enough information about how they control their export rice quality, about laboratories and quality certificates.

“The VPSS experts want to visit the countries to learn about rice production but they are not invited. We have to wait until import licenses are granted,'' said Dankvert. He added that the inspection conducted by Russia in Thailand has shown that Russia has every reason to be worried about the rice quality. Thailand does not have any system responsible for controlling the additives that may harm human health.

The Russian authorities had decided to temporarily prohibit the rice imports from several countries, reasoning that the product cannot meet the quality set by Russia and contain substances that may harm human health. The ban has come into effect since December 4, 2006
