Rospotrebnadzor (the Russian Federal Service on Customers' Rights Protection and Human Well-Being Surveillance) has authorized five Ukrainian laboratories to test cheese that is to be supplied to the Russian market.

According to a report on the Web site of Rospotrebnadzor, the Russian agency has conducted the documentary assessment of the following accredited laboratories: Medved Institute of Ecohygiene and Toxicology (Kyiv), Ukrmetrteststandart (Kyiv), Cherkasystandartmetrologia (Cherkasy), the Regional State Laboratory of Veterinary Medicine in Poltava region, and the State Scientific-Research Institute of Laboratory Diagnostics and Veterinary-Sanitary Examination of the State Committee of Veterinary Medicine of Ukraine (Kyiv).

"These labs are accredited to examine dairy products and have sufficient equipment and skilled professionals. These laboratories can conduct research to evaluate the safety and quality of cheese," said Rospotrebnadzor.

The agency noted that at the early stages of Ukrainian cheese supplies to Russia it is intending to carry out comparison tests and evaluate the results.

The laboratory of the Institute of Food Resources of the National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine (Kyiv) has not provided documents for accreditation.
