The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela’s (BRV) legislation governing domestically produced and imported processed food products, beverages, additives, and coloring agents for foods destined for human consumption, are contained in the “General Food Norm.” This general food safety law describes all requirements, including labeling requirements, which processed food products must fulfill in order to be offered to consumers. The norm also requires registration for locally produced and imported processed food products. Complementary norms were established on March 3, 1996.
