In El Salvador there is no specific food law. However, the Ministry of Health’s (MINSAL) Health Code is used to enforce food safety for all food and beverage products. MINSAL is in charge of food and beverage product registration. Animal origin products and produce are regulated by the Ministry of Agriculture (MAG). The Consumer Protection Law is enforced by the Consumer Protection Agency (DDC). Food safety norms are becoming more strict and sometimes lend themselves to the creation of non-tariff barriers.
