EU Animal Health Certificates Accepted in Moldova

11 July 2014

MOLDOVA - Moldova has agreed to accept imports from the European Union accompanied by EU veterinary certificate based on a template specified in the EU legislation.

Moldova started to recognise as valid both, the veterinary certificate that follows the model provided for in its own legislation and the one used in the EU from last month.

A spokesman for the European Commission said: “This is a good step towards easier trade between both partners.

“This decision comes in the context of a process aiming to align the Moldovan requirements with the EU legislation.

“The recently signed Association Agreement with the Republic of Moldova will bring closer integration of both markets.”

The European Commission, the EU Delegation in Moldova and the Moldovan authorities will continue to cooperate on sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) matters.

The cooperation will aim at finding practical and lasting solutions to the outstanding issues, to allow trade to further increase.

In 2013, the total EU exports to Moldova on agriculture and food products amounted to around €230 million.
