MOPH Sets Deadlines for Registration of Food Products Electronically

The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) requested importers and exporters of food products to immediately register their products using the electronic system by registering the food products on the website launched by the ministry last April.

In a statement issued last week, MOPH said that the deadline for registration of dairy products is November 30, 2019, while April 30, 2019 is the deadline for the registration of other food products. The ministry also confirmed in its statement that the import of unregistered food products will not be allowed after the mentioned dates.

In April, MOPH launched an e-registration system for food products through its website, which includes the registration of all information on imported food, which facilitates the process of monitoring and tracking it when receiving notifications of the possibility of linking products to specific dangers. It also contributes to reducing the number of infringing foods, or destroyed foods for reasons related to the information in the data card.
