The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (ROSSELKHOZNADZOR) oversees compliance with legislation in the field of veterinary medicine and phytosanitary, regulation and control of product quality and import and export operations.

Our company worked with the Ministry of Agriculture even before the appearance of the Rosselkhoznadzor, and after the establishment of the Service, it continued to successfully cooperate with it.

The main areas of activity have always been conflict resolution, mediation and restoration of the reputation of companies in difficult situations, as well as support for inspections conducted by service inspectors and consulting in the field of supervised activities.

Dispute resolution

In the experience of almost all importing and exporting companies operating on the market for more than five years, situations have occurred that, as a result of violations that are not completely clear to entrepreneurs, have rather significant consequences due to late resolution of disputes, resulting in serious losses.

We try to work with such situations from the very beginning and often until they occur.

Yes, this often happens for large companies that have been operating in the market for a long time – an incident occurs in a number of uncoordinated actions, which will be detected during inspection and the cargo will be detained until the situation is resolved and will be subject to quite significant fines for downtime and non-delivery. You can eliminate such consequences even before they appear by coordinating the documents with the regulatory authorities in advance.

The standard official deadline for reviewing documents from government organizations is 30 days, and this is a very long time. We are able to understand the situation as quickly as possible and reach mutual agreements in a short time, preserving the client’s good reputation or restoring it.

Support of inspections

One of the most popular services has always been and remains production audit before inspections and representation of applicants ‘ interests during them. This type of assistance allows you to significantly improve the operation of the enterprise, identify the main weaknesses and adjust the production process so that it fully meets the highest quality and safety standards. Working with our representatives for our clients helps to eliminate all disputes in the verification process as much as possible and avoid a significant number of penalties, and for enterprises conducting audits for inclusion in the lists of exporters – to successfully pass inspections and open new markets to attract new buyers.

Export audit

Over the past few years, with the introduction of sanctions against the Russian Federation by a number of countries and the adoption of mutual counter-sanctions that affected the exchange rate of major currencies, our commodity producers have begun to actively increase export sales channels for their products.

For goods produced on the territory of the Russian Federation and subject to veterinary supervision (List) and phytosanitary supervision (list), it is necessary to pass a check for compliance with the requirements of the country to which export is planned with the involvement of Rosselkhoznadzor authorities and subsequent registration in the Cerberus system

The requirements for export to different countries differ according to the types of enterprises, products produced, methods of cultivation and processing, and they can be found on the Rosselkhoznadzor website.

After conducting an audit by the Rosselkhoznadzor and making a positive conclusion on the compliance of the enterprise with the requirements of the declared countries, the relevant inspection of the country to which export is planned or already being carried out may at any time express a desire to independently inspect the site and carry out an agreed visit to the enterprise. If the departure is satisfactory, the status of the enterprise is confirmed, and if it is unsatisfactory, the enterprise is prohibited from further delivery of products to the specified country.

If you contact us, you will receive:


Preliminary pre-verification audit with detection of nonconformities at the time of verification


A list of comments and recommendations on how to fix them


Repeated pre-verification (control) audit


A representative who knows the requirements and answers the inspectors ' questions correctly

Connecting to the Mercury and Argus system

Companies that start their business importing or exporting products subject to regulation in the field of veterinary medicine or phytosanitary are required to comply with a number of requirements and perform registration actions in the Argus and Mercury systems.

Argus is one of the modules of the Vetis software package created by the Rosselkhoznadzor to ensure the traceability of products that require registration of veterinary accompanying documents(VDS) for crossing state borders.

Permits for the import and export (import and export) of products must be obtained in this system.

Mercury is another module of the Vetis software package created by the Rosselkhoznadzor to ensure traceability of products within the country.

Both of these software modules are necessary for carrying out activities related to the trade in supervised cargo.

To register in both systems, you must complete a set of actions to conclude relevant contracts, submit applications, and obtain access rights to the system.

Veterinary certificate

Veterinary certificates are issued for supervised products both in our country and in other countries, including under the provisions of international agreements.

The monopoly right to issue veterinary certificates belongs to the state veterinary services.

About foreign veterinary certificates.

We often receive requests for veterinary certificates issued by foreign countries.

And for all novice importers, we want to make it clear here that foreign veterinary documents cannot be issued in the Russian Federation based on the general procedure for their registration.

The procedure is always as follows: before sending the supervised cargo for export and issuing a veterinary certificate, the veterinarian of the country of departure must make sure that the cargo meets the requirements of the Russian Federation (the necessary tests have been carried out), the exporting company has the necessary permits for exporting such cargo to the Russian Federation, the cargo and labeling labels correspond to the after that, an export veterinary certificate is issued.

The above procedure can be changed only if there are errors detected after the shipment of the cargo and a certificate with the necessary corrections can be issued for such goods.

The forms of agreed certificates for sending goods to the Customs Union can be found on the website of the Eurasian Economic Commission by clicking on this link.

The import veterinary certificate for cargo imported into the Russian Federation at the border during inspection by a veterinary inspector, if there are no comments, is changed to a veterinary certificate of Form 6.2., with which the cargo must be sent to the storage location specified in the import permit.

Prior to the introduction of VETIS Mercury, the movement of supervised goods within the country was carried out with the mandatory support of veterinary certificates, and since 2014, such certificates can be replaced by an electronic veterinary accompanying document (eVSD) in the system, provided that the sender and recipient have registration numbers in Mercury.

When exporting controlled goods, it is necessary to meet the requirements of the recipient country in relation to the cargo planned for export and conduct appropriate studies.

We are professionals in this field and are always ready to offer good conditions for obtaining the necessary research, veterinary certificates and export customs clearance.

Phytosanitary certificate

Phytosanitary certificate – a document issued to the authorized bodies of the country and certifying that the cargo in respect of which it is issued is safe in phytosanitary terms, i.e. free from quarantine diseases and pests.

The procedure for issuing a phytosanitary certificate is almost identical to the procedure for issuing a veterinary certificate, with the exception of the products for which it is issued.

The list of products is determined by the Rosselkhoznadzor and contains products that have a high phytosanitary risk. For goods with a low phytosanitary risk, a certificate can also be issued at the request of the applicant (or by agreement of the applicant with the recipient).

The goods intended for export are subject to an expert examination to confirm the absence of quarantine diseases and pests, and after such a certificate (received conclusion), a phytosanitary certificate can be issued.

The document processing period is up to 7 days, including expert examination.
