The Ministry of Industry and Commerce explained why food is not subject to parallel imports

The Ministry of Industry and Commerce explained why food, alcohol and tobacco are not included in the list of goods for parallel imports. This decision was made due to fears of the growth of counterfeit products, reports TASS with reference to the ministry.

As clarified by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, goods with TN VED codes from 1 to 24 are under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Agriculture, which opposed their inclusion in the list of parallel imports.

“Given the difficulties in identifying the owner of such products, allowing parallel imports for these groups may lead to an increase in counterfeit products,” the ministry explained.

The Ministry of Industry and Commerce approved on May 6 the list of goods for parallel imports. It includes sound recording equipment, photography and film equipment, musical instruments, game consoles, home appliances, cosmetic components, clothing, shoes, chemicals, automobiles, and more. The list contains 96 elements in total.

At the same time, the ministry emphasized that the legalization of parallel imports does not imply permission for the import and circulation of counterfeit products in Russia.
