Sanitary and phytosanitary measure

On 15 July 2009, the Russian Government extended the list of the goods that are mandatory for quarantine and phytosanitary control (SPS measures). As a result, used light cars, tractors and busses entered the list. The government based its decision on the fact that during the years 2007-2008 the Russian customs identified at the border more than 4,000 vehicles that contained soil, dead and alive insects and other matter that could be potentially dangerous. In 14 cases the customs found insects falling under the quarantine regime in Russia. This steps comes during an increased campaign to support the Russian domestic car industry by all possible means.
