The vice president of Ecuador Jorge Glas said that health registrations for products intended for exports will no longer be necessary.
The other goods that still require these permits, such as those intended for domestic consumption, will be delivered in an agile way because this is required by “people” to produce, he said.
Sanitary registrations will not be necessary for those companies, no matter the size, that already have the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certificates. This is cointained, he said, in the Organic Law of Incentives for Public-Private Partnerships and Foreign Investment, known as APP law. For the cosmetics industry, a simple permit will be required.
He noted that national companies that even having health permits in Germany, still not obtained them in Ecuador. Hence the need to eliminate red tape. “No operating license or health registration is needed if the company has approved the good practices stage, medicines are excluded from this.”
