Konnov & Sozanovsky — Advising Various Businesses

Veterinary medicine of Ukraine is more a distinct industry of its own than a segment of agriculture, which embraces diagnostics, treatment, education and science. There is a well-developed production of veterinary preparations, as well as separate ingredients and substances in Ukraine. Ukraine has become far more transparent with respect to cross-border trade involving veterinary products. This fact is largely attributable to the EU expansion to the Eastern Europe and, in particular, Ukraine’s accession to the WTO on May 16, 2008. By acceding WTO Ukraine has become an equal participant in the global trading system, and brought its national legislation in conformity with European and international standards.

One of the current major tasks of the veterinary industry of Ukraine is the authentication of animals, which is important for the monitoring of exported products and confirmation of quality thereof.
