To the Heads of Regional Veterinary Departments of RF (according to the list)
At this time, on the territory of Russian Federation there is a significant amount of goods that are subject
to veterinary control and which further movement in the market has been stopped because of the
antibiotics residue violation (mostly tetracycline). Those goods do not have very high concentration of
antibiotics residues. Considering the following:
- SanPin requirements 18.104.22.1688-01, which sets the allowable tetracycline residue level at or not
higher then 0,01 units/g (10 mkg/kg), and which can not be detected with the testing methods
- Much higher sensitivity of the quantitative method at the level of 1 mkg/kg used by
- The tolerance level of 28 % typical for that testing method in concentrations close to the level of
- The explanation letter from the Ministry of Health of 6 November 2009 # 24-4/10/2-8804 that
was received by RosSelhozNadzor and relates to the plan for harmonizing Russian norms with
that of the international recommendations;
The decisions in regards to such shipments would have to be taken in accordance with the scheme for the
use of products that contain antibiotics residues (attached).
Deputy Head of RosselphsNadzor Mr N.A. Vlasov
Addendum to the directive of RosSelhozNadzor of 13 January 2010 # FS-NV 2/51
The scheme for the use of products of live origin which contains antibiotics residues.
When testing the products of live origin using the method of highly effective liquid chromatography with
mass-spectrometric detection, registered by the Federal agency for Technical Regulations and Metrology
and listed in the Federal list of methodologies used in governmental metrological control, all test results are to be divided into three groups
The first one – concentrations lower then 7.2 (10-10X0.28=10-2.8=7.2 mkg/kg). The area of allowable
tetracycline concentration whereby the product can be used for human consumption; Second area – concentration higher then 12.8 (allowable level of concentration plus the tolerance of the
testing method) – the level whereby the product is not allowed for human consumption
Third area – from 7.2 to 12.8 - doubtful concentration levels, whereby the product could be mistakenly referred to the either of the other two areas (one fit or unfit for human consumption).
Considering the above and in case regional veterinary departments have such goods in its territory, the following actions have to be undertaken:
- less then 7.2 mkg/kg – release into the market ASAP
- over or equal 12.8 – subject to re-export or other use in accordance with the legislative acts of
- over or equal 7.2 and less then 12.8 – send samples for repeat confirmative testing and take
decisions based on results of second confirmative testing.
Similar procedure is to be used in relation to all imported live products arriving into the country.
