After the implementation of the appropriate section of ARGUS permits for export of drugs for animals from the Russian Federation will also be issued using this system.

These permits will be accessible in a special subsystem of ARGUS for the officials working in the Territorial Administrations of the Rosselkhoznadzor, Veterinary Authorities of the Russian Federation, and for other users concerned.
