Bosnian company cannot bring in Turkish citrus

Serbia bans import of tangerines due to pesticide content

The Inspectorate of the Republika Srpska has stated that the Phytosanitary Inspection of the Republika Srpska banned a Bosnian company from importing 20,900 kilograms of tangerines originating from Turkey. The reason for this is an overly high pesticides content.

The statement reads: ”Based on the report on laboratory analysis issued by the Bijeljina Water Institute, the analysed sample showed an increased presence of pesticides above the values prescribed by the Ordinance on maximum levels of pesticide residues in and on food and feed of plant and animal origin.”

The importer requested a re-analysis of a second sample, but this confirmed the first analysis, based on which the inspector issued a decision banning the import of the disputed shipment and issued an order for its return to the sender or destruction under the supervision of a competent inspector.
