According to the Ukrainian media \"Agricultural News\" on the 17th, on July 15, 2019, the new regulations on the \"Safety and Quality Requirements for Milk and Dairy Products\" formulated by the Ministry of Agriculture Policy and Food of Ukraine came into effect.
The new regulations set specific requirements for the production, processing and entry of milk and dairy products, and established standards for raw milk based on the requirements of human consumption.
The new regulations apply to all participating operators in the milk and dairy products market, but there are no requirements for the primary production of milk and colostrum for their own consumption.
It is speculated that the regulation will help increase the production of Ukrainian premium milk. At the same time, updating the requirements in the field of milk products will make national legislation more in line with the relevant regulations of the EU's veterinary hygiene rules and safety indicators for milk production and circulation.
The transition period of the new regulations ends in 2022.
