Kazakh company to export feathers to Europe

ASTANA – Kostanai-based NabasFabrik will begin exporting feathers to European Union (EU) countries for the first time in the nation’s history. The regional administration is doing everything possible to reduce bureaucratic red tape and register additional companies with the right to export to the EU and China.


“In June, as a result of inspections conducted and negotiations with the European Commission, NabasFabrik fluff and feather, located in the Kostanai region, is included in the EU registry. This gives the company the right to export fluff and feather to the EU,” said Kostanai regional veterinary inspection head Urazbek Batyrbekov at a recent administration meeting, according to Kazinform.

Elsewhere, a Chinese delegation visited the region last spring to study the state veterinary system and determine the willingness of slaughter stations to ship goods to the Chinese market under domestic products export.

“Based on the results of the assessment of the inspection work regarding the issue of permits for the export of meat to China, two slaughter stations were included in the register of enterprises that have right to export frozen mutton to China,” said Batyrbekov.

He added inspections are completed and a number of measures have been taken to optimise the process of issuing export documents. Proposals were made to a number of regulatory bodies and the number of legal acts through authorised bodies was decreased. In addition, due to the support of the Atameken National Chamber of Entrepreneurs a variety of necessary documents has been excluded and the terms for issuing veterinary permits reduced.

In particular, Batyrbekov said inspections are performed on a permanent basis to register Kostanai companies to export domestic products to Eurasian Economic Union countries. To date, 235 regional enterprises have been inspected and included in the corresponding registers.
