1. Aspects to consider

The documentation control is carried out without exceptions. Therefore, exporters outside the European Union must comply with a set of laws, concerning consumer safety.

For example, the exporter is obliged to declare:

  • The composition and nutritional table of foods.
  • Quality certifications.
  • Concordance in the information regarding the real weight and volume.
  • The effects of packaging on food (processed) and / or raw materials.
  • Mandatory information in accordance with European labeling regulations.

By the time of formalizing the exportation, keep in mind that the regulations vary according to the product. In fact, some products and / or raw materials have stricter regulations, such as:

  • Organic products: require certification from an organic inspection entity, which must be recognized and approved by the commission of the European Union.

  • Products that come into internal and / or external contact with the human body that are not food, must have a special marketing authorization. To summarize, it is essential to meet the requirements of pharmacovigilance and healthiness. On the other hand, it must contain information about the composition, category, origin, presence or absence of chemical substances such as salts, additives, flavorings, preservatives, dyes and sweeteners.
