Qatar Special Import Requirements

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 7:55 am

Current laws and regulations of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Agriculture and the Ministry of Public Health require labeling and marking requirements to be honored, especially where import of foodstuffs is concerned.

Qatar enforces GCC shelf-life standards GS 150/1993, Part I and II, which combined affect 170 food products. The manufacturer established shelf life is accepted for other food products. Production and expiry dates must be printed on the original label or container by the manufacturer. Dates cannot be added after the fact via a sticker. Products must arrive at destination with at least half the shelf-life duration remaining. The U.S. supplier should work closely with the importer to ensure compliance with local shelf-life requirements.
