A new system for tracking the turnover of agrochemicals based on the Rosselkhoznadzor under the name "Saturn" will appear in Russia. This is reported by "Veterinary Medicine and Life" with reference to the Deputy Director for Informatization of the Federal Center for Animal Health (part of the department) Alexander Osminin.
According to him, it should start operating in July this year. Now the department is actively engaged in its development and implementation. Osminin said that it would become, in fact, an analogue of Mercury. The principles of their work are similar. It uses the same gradual mode of creating modules as in the federal state information system (FSIS) VetIS, which is responsible for processing veterinary documents.
For example, last year, specialists launched a block for accounting for the import of these products, which is reminiscent of Argus for Mercury. Subjects can submit notifications about the planned import of products into the territory of the Russian Federation, and Rosselkhoznadzor inspectors can record incoming lots. Then there will be blocks for tracking the movement and production of substances in Russia and their use. At this stage, production and transport certificates for products will be issued. All this, according to the specialist, will ensure the traceability of products up to its use on a specific land plot.
Recall that Rosselkhoznadzor received the authority to control the import of pesticides and other agrochemicals and compliance with regulations for their use in 2020.
