Now we detail the merging of two departments, said assistant head of Rosselkhoznadzor Alexei Alekseenko. In his opinion, it would be “just a merger of functions”.
SHARM EL SHEIKH, 28 Oct. A decision in principle on the merger of the Rosselkhoznadzor and Rospotrebnadzor has already been made, the details are still being worked out, and the process may take at least a year, said assistant head of Rosselkhoznadzor Alexei Alekseenko.
“The decision to merge the services. How it will be — will depend on the government… I think it will just merge functionality, as it will be — the question”, — said Alekseenko reporters on the sidelines of the International grain trading conference in Egypt.
He did not specify in what time frame can be decided according to the parameters of Association services. “I think that the work itself, even technical, it may take at least a year… If I’m not mistaken, (Minister Michael) Abyzov was appointed responsible for the preparatory work. What time frame — I don’t know, but the issue is very serious, it is a matter of national security”, — said the assistant head of the Rosselkhoznadzor.
Alekseenko also said that checks of trading networks by the Rosselkhoznadzor found systemic problems in the different retailers. In particular, the office verifies whether the products of the networks on the falsification, and the level of adulteration, according to him, rolls over.
“The decision in principle has already been made, about the formation of a new verification system, a new service — think it’s right, because you have to combine functions and Rosselkhoznadzor, and Rospotrebnadzor… In my opinion, as an expert on security, we need the lifting functions of the Ministry of agriculture is more effective if it is the MAF. And end-to-end control should be on the principle “from field to table,” added Alekseenko.
