Several laws govern food imports to Sri Lanka. Food Act No. 26 of 1980, Animal Feed Act No. 15 of 1986, Plant Protection Act No. 35 of 1999, and Import and Export Control Act No. 1 of 1969 are the main laws that govern these imports. The responsibility of import regulation is in the hands of several state institutions, making the process complicated and time consuming. The regulations are comprehensive and restrict trade. While some regulations have been in place for decades, new regulations are in the pipeline. In meeting the commitments of the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Sri Lanka is in the process of streamlining the processes of regulatory authorities. To streamline import and export trading processes, Sri Lanka has initiated two online platforms: Sri Lanka Trade Information Portal and National Single Window.
