Vietnam’s Law on Food Saftey

Vietnam’s Law on Food Saftey

DAFF issued an IAN on 13 June 2012 regarding a new law implemented on 11 June 2011 by Vietnam in relation to imported food products. Unfortunately Vietnam has not provided much clarity about the implications of the new law although it has been advised that ‘existing requirements will remain the basis for trade in food’. As there are no guidelines available and it is important that exporters understand the conditions it would be appreciated if any commercial disruption be notified immediatately incurred to either GIMAF or DAFF. Further IAN’s will be posted as information becomes available on this issue.
