Rosselkhoznadzor continues to actively work on the integration of information systems in the field of plant quarantine with the possibility of switching to the exchange of phytosanitary certificates in electronic form with the main countries-suppliers of plant products.

In order to ensure the traceability of the movement of plant-based goods, to prevent the import of sanctioned products under the guise of cover goods, as well as to accelerate the passage of quarantine phytosanitary control at checkpoints across the state border of the Russian Federation, such interaction is carried out with 22 countries of the world. Among them are the states from which Russia imports the largest volumes of quarantined goods.

To date, work has already been completed on the integration of the Russian Argus-PHYTO FGIS system with similar technical solutions of Belarus and Uzbekistan. Work plans have been signed and are in the process of being implemented for the interaction of systems with Kazakhstan, Serbia, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Azerbaijan.

It is planned to sign draft protocols on the integration of similar platforms with Morocco, Chile, Peru, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Vietnam, China, Turkey, Brazil and Iran.

In addition, countries such as Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, Moldova, Ecuador and Egypt and confirmed their interest in this issue.
