Ukraine has been put on the list of approved importers to the EU for eggs, egg products, birds and poultry, according to the State Veterinary and Biosecurity Service of Ukraine. The country has been working with the EU to receive rights to export products to the bloc for some time.


There is still no information on an exact date for when the decision goes into effect, and relevant amendments must be made to the regulations of the European Commission, a process which could take two to three months. In addition, Ukraine must submit to the Commission its Salmonella control program to ensure it is in line with EU requirements.
