Import of Dutch flowers to Russia

Since August 10, 2015 all Dutch cut flowers coming to the Russian market should be previously tested for meeting the standards for plant health in the Russian laboratories.

The Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) was forced to take this decision because of substantial increase in the number of cases when Dutch cut flowers imported to Russia were infested with the quarantine pests such as western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis Perg), white rust disease of chrysanthemum (Puccinia horiana Henn.) and others.

The Dutch authorities stopped issuing phytosanitary certificates for cut flowers shipped to Russia since January 1, 2007. Consequently all Dutch flowers have been imported to Russia through the territories of other EU countries like the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary and Poland with phytosanitary certificates of these countries.
