Myanmar is in the process of updating many of its laws and regulations in response to the recent opening of the economy and greater level of interaction with international partners. Since publication of the last FAIRS Report for Myanmar, the government drafted a new Food Law and sent it to the Union Attorney General Office for legal review. The draft Food Law is a general framework, under which all food regulations will fall. It was drafted by the National Food Law Committee, led by the Department of Food and Drug Administration, which falls under the Ministry of Health and Sports. In 2016 Myanmar approved a new Seed Law and Plant Variety Protection Law. In 2017 the country approved a new Pesticide Law and Investment Law and amended the Plant Pest Quarantine Law and the Trademark Law. Myanmar generally relies on the Codex, OIE and ASEAN guidelines.
