The participants of the food market are complaining about the opacity of control, threatening businesses with fines and loss of reputation. The Russian Union of Industrialists and entrepreneurs (RSPP) proposed to introduce the mandatory video recording of the sampling for analysis and to automate the process. Now the study of products from the same party in different laboratories can give the opposite result.RSPP is proposed to automate the selection of food samples for veterinary, phytosanitary and sanitary-epidemiological control, and to introduce their mandatory video recording. Offer amendments to legislation, the Union has written to the Minister of agriculture Dmitry Patrushev and the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova.Now sampling is not transparent, the laboratory personnel have the “opportunity “to draw” any outcome,” the letter reads. This approach is expected negative reaction of producers on the basis of analysis they can apply various sanctions. Partner of the law Bureau “Zamoskvorechye” Dmitry Shevchenko says that often companies are attracted to responsibility for violation of requirements of technical regulations, the maximum fine is 600 thousand rubles with confiscation of the consignment.In the CPS, however, argue that all laboratory test centers, the Agency, accredited in accordance with applicable law, reaffirmed its competence. This allows you to ensure the impartiality, independence, confidentiality, sampling, assured in the Department, promised to consider the proposal of the Union. The Ministry of agriculture did not respond to a request “b”.Now the impartiality of the study is provided by de-identification of samples: the sample removed all the markings, assigning it a code. But, as the authors of the document, the process goes in the closed mode, giving “an opportunity for manipulation of test results in the corruption purposes”. Can solve the problem of video recording of all stages from harvest samples to load them into the encryption device. The latter, on the proposal of the Union, will work on the principle of “black box”, when samples remain in a special encrypted containers to receive the results. It, believe the authors, will allow to complicate the manipulation of the results of the study.President of the Russian Association of fishermen (VARPE) Herman Zverev says that anglers annually, more than 11 thousand ship loads, or about one-third of the total amount, is subject to laboratory research. In addition, adds the Deputy Director of GK “Norebo” Sergey Sennikov, the company has to regularly take repeat samples. Improving transparency of such procedures will significantly reduce administrative barriers, he said. Co-founder of the group “Agama” Yuri Alashaev clarifies that it’s labor-intensive process.President of Agrifood Strategies albert Davleev said that the EEU technical regulations and Standards contain the methodology, principles and rules of sampling, but in reality are often not respected. It can be connected not only with the personal interest of the laboratory personnel but also with negligence, he said. According to him, there were times when the company provided samples from the same batch of goods in different laboratories and obtained opposite results. At the same time, says the Lord Davleev, all these laboratories are accredited, there are approximately on the same hardware and identical regulations.Albert Davleev shows the reputational component of the examination. Now among laboratories popular to share with the media their results of the food samples. “So in the minds of consumers introduced the opinion about the dangers or safety of those or other products”,— said the expert. Under attack, he continues, may be whole categories of products. Executive Director of “RusBrand” Alexey Popovichev adds that in practice consumers often refuse from food, agrees that this situation adversely affects the image of manufacturer, brand and leads to economic losses.Alexei Polukhin
