As a member of the European Union, the Government of Portugal applies EU regulations and legislation, where available, regarding the importation of food, feed, feed ingredients and beverages. Food laws of individual member states have mostly been fully harmonized into EU law. However, it is important to note that when EU-wide legislation is incomplete or absent, Portuguese laws apply and imported product must meet existing Portuguese requirements.
