1 Problem improvement of Ukrainian legislation regarding combating counterfeit pesticides and agrochemicals December, 06, 2005, Kyiv
2 Main statutory acts, which regulate this sphere: §Law of Ukraine “About plant protection”; §Law of Ukraine “About pesticides and agrochemicals”; §Law of Ukraine “About standardization” (currently in force) and other statutory acts regarding standardization; §Legislation regarding responsibility for supply, sale, distribution of nonstandard products; §Subordinate legislation for them.
3 The present day terminology §“Products, which don’t conform to the established requirements and standards” §“Unsafe products” §“Nonqualitative products” §“Defective products” §“Substandard products” §“Products, which have defects” §“Fabricated products” (in some subordinate statutory acts)
4 The role of standards in Ukrainian legislation §Standard – is a law for a producer and a seller; §The majority of product kinds should comply with the established standards; §Voluntary standards don’t actually exist; §Nonstandard products can’t be sold in the market; §Breach of standard requirements brings about responsibility, even criminal one; §If products don’t conform to standards, they’re considered nonqualitative, unsafe and defective.
5 Conclusions: §Pesticides, agrochemicals and plant protection products are production, for which general rules regarding observance of standard requirements are applied; §In the current legislation the terms “counterfeit”, “fabricated” products are on a par with the term “nonstandard products”; §The problem of fabricated pesticides, agrochemicals and plant protection products is a component of a general problem – counterfeit products on the whole; §It’s rational to develop and implement a dealer system in the process of product supply in order to solve this problem.
