The Head of the Inspection Bodies’ Coordination Bureau of the RA Prime Minister’s Office Petros Martirosyan presented the draft law on Making Amendments and Addendum to the Law on State Control of Food Safety to the deputies for debate in the first reading.
It is designed to regulate the process of laboratory tests within the framework of border control at the stage of food import. The answer given by that laboratory will be considered final until the appointment of the reference laboratory in the Republic of Armenia.
It is expected that the adoption of the draft will provide an opportunity to improve the process of organizing laboratory tests.
David Arushanyan presented the endorsement of the NA Standing Committee on Economic Affairs regarding the draft.
The draft was debated at the NA sitting on September 11.
