VILNIUS, October 11 (RIA Novosti's Vladimir Vodo) - Russia's State Veterinarian Service is launching, today, another check of Lithuanian meat and dairy factories eager to export their produce to Russia, reports Lithuania's State Food and Veterinarian Service.

The inspectors will visit 44 Lithuanian industrial companies-14 meat-packers, twelve refrigerators, eight creameries, seven fish canneries, and three fodder factories.

A first inspection, of July into August, resulted in 33 out of a total 65 corporate applicants getting Russian import certificates.

Russia's State Veterinarian Service experts have checked many food factories in the ten countries who recently joined the European Union-and certified less then half of them for animal produce and seafood export to Russia, starting September 1.

The experts make it a point for Lithuanian foodstuffs to be up to Russian and EU standards at once. Many of the companies in for the current, repetitive inspection have European Union export certificates, which Russia does not recognise-hence its independent checks.

The European Commission, EU top executive, has drawn a list of companies to be inspected on Russia's request.

Russia has banned imports from companies uncertified by its State Veterinarian Service, starting September 1.
