7/1/2020

The Council of Heads of Authorized Bodies in the Field of Sanitary and Epidemiological Welfare of the Union has considered prospects for resuming international transportation in the EAEU countries as well as anti-epidemic aspects of preparations for the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council's meeting in Minsk.

 The meeting attendees have noted that the Commission, involving the Member States, plans to elaborate recommendations on determining approaches to resuming international transportation between the Member States. The possibility of resuming international transportation will be determined depending on the epidemiological situation in the Union countries.

 Since the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council’s meeting may be held in Minsk on July 17 this year in a face-to-face format, the sanitary and epidemiological service of the Republic of Belarus is making some arrangements to prevent spreading the COVID-19 coronavirus infection. Mutual recognition of documents on compliance with preventive measures elaborated by the Union countries' security services will be provided.

 The meeting has also discussed a comprehensive action plan in the field of public health and sanitary and epidemiological welfare to prevent spreading the coronavirus infection and other infectious diseases in the Union countries. The document is scheduled to be considered at the EEC Council’s meeting on July 10 and the EIC meeting on July 17 this year.
