Guatemala: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

 

The GOG made several policy changes to facilitate trade, while other policies continue to cause problems. The Ministry of Agriculture (MAGA) rescinded plant-by-plant inspections of non-processed seafood, and animal products to Guatemala. A Central America Technical Regulation on food additives continues to create import delays, while the Ministry of Health accepts an AMS Sanitary Certificate for dairy product registration, dropping the Certificate of Free Sale requirement for each commercial shipment. MAGA is enforcing mandatory analysis of aflatoxin and ochratoxin levels in flours that must accompany each shipment.
