During summer 2009, Ukraine announced new inspection requirements which put European
exports of animals and animal products at risk. These requirements were scheduled
to enter into force on 14 January 2010. The European Commission immediately expressed
concerns on this proposed measure and held co-operative and constructive discussions with
the Ukrainian authorities. Early in January 2010 Ukraine announced the cancellation of its
proposed inspection requirements.

several discussions took place, between the European Commission and the Ukrainian
authorities, in a cooperative and constructive manner, both in Brussels and in Kiev. In early
January 2010, as a result of these discussions, Ukraine announced cancellation of the inspection requirements that had been announced in July 2009. Ukraine is an important trading partner for the EU. According to the 2008 trade flows between the EU and Ukraine, the implementation of such a strict inspection measure would have affected EU exports worth over € 700 million.
