Honduras - Food and Agricultural Import Regulations and Standards
The Honduran Government (GOH) agencies which are responsible for food safety matters are the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (SAG). The Ministry of Health’s authority is governed by its health code, which is spelled out in Congressional Decree 65-91 (dated 05/28/91) and Executive Decree 06-2005 (dated 09/21/2005) which is titled "Sanitary Control of Products, Services and Establishments of Sanitary Interest Regulation". Food safety issues which deal with animal and plant products, agricultural chemicals, and veterinary products are governed by SAG through the Phytosanitary & Zoosanitary Law (Congressional Decree 157-94, modified via Decree 344-2005) and its implementing regulations. The Consumer Protection Law and the Municipalities Law also address food safety issues to some extent.
