Russia's general rice imports
Executive Summary

On July 20, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance of the Russian Federation (VPSS) lifted the ban on Indian rice imports, although all imports must be certified by Shriramsky Research Institute, the only Indian laboratory approved by VPSS. Following the suspension of all rice imports in December 20061, renewal of imports from the major traditional suppliers has depended on the VPSS’ country-by-country inspections of rice production and handling chains. Imports remain banned from all countries that have not consented to VPSS’ request to inspect their domestic rice production, transportation, storage, and handling, including lists of chemicals, norms of application and practices of certification of these chemicals by the government agencies. In January – May 2007, Russia imported 67,000 metric tons of rice, compared with 172,000 metric tons during the same period last year. Along with the reduced rice import volumes, the number of suppliers decreased significantly, with those granted market access depending entirely on VPSS’ inspections and goodwill, as is demonstrated by the charts on page five of this report. Experts estimate that the average price of rice in the domestic market increased by 30 percent compared with prices in 2006. Furthermore, some types of rice, especially premium quality varieties, disappeared from the market completely. Total 2007 rice imports are forecast to fall 50 percent from the previous year to 180,000 metric tons2.

Rice imports from the United States have been banned since September 2006.
