Import Diatery Supplement Declaration Service

Why is it necessary to declare imported diatery supplements?

Currently, the demand for health supplements is increasing, prompting many businesses to import these products to meet market demands. 

However, the market is currently facing issues with counterfeit and products with unclear origins. To protect consumers in choosing quality imported  products, the law has issued Decree No. 15/2018, which stipulates that imported health supplements must undergo product declaration to circulate in the market.
