Today, another discussion of topical issues of the grain market was held with the participation of the Chairman of the State Inspection Committee in the agro-industrial complex Mars A.M., the heads of the territorial divisions of the Committee, as well as the director of the Department of Agri-Food Markets and Processing of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Kazakhstan Khatepova N.S.
Grain market participants received comprehensive clarifications on current issues related to the introduction of restrictions on wheat exports until September 30, 2022.
Thus, wheat residues in the amount of about 167 thousand tons, unused according to the previously received quota until June 15, 2022, will be allowed for export within the volume of the new quota (550 thousand tons) established for the period until September 30, 2022. For the export of wheat residues that were not used according to a previously received quota, it is not required to re-sell wheat to the Food Corporation at a fixed price.
To obtain permission to export wheat in excess of the balance of the unused quota, the exporter must sell to the Food Corporation 10% of the planned volume of wheat exports at a price of 116 thousand tenge / ton (including VAT) at the Food Corporation's authorized elevators.
The territorial subdivisions of the State Inspection Committee in the agro-industrial complex accept applications from exporters for the issuance of phytosanitary certificates in the regular mode.
Also, the chairman of the State Inspection Committee in the agro-industrial complex drew the attention of grain market participants to the inadmissibility of carrying out activities for the fumigation of goods without a state license. The circulation of pesticides in the Republic of Kazakhstan is regulated by law, and their use, associated with a high risk to health, is carried out by qualified specialists of companies that have the appropriate license. In case of revealing facts of violation of the law, the State Inspectorate Committee in the Agro-Industrial Complex will, within the established competence, take tough response measures against grain-receiving enterprises, elevators and other places of grain shipment that use fumigation without a state license.
