Certificate of Food Safety for companies investing in Vietnam

Pursuant to the Vietnam’s Food Safety Law No. 55/2010/QH12 entered into force on July 1st, 2011 and the relevant decrees and circulars, enterprises producing and trading food must be issued Certificate of Food Safety before production and sales. This certificate will be issued by the Department of Industry and Trade or the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development depending on the specific kind of food and has a 3-year duration. 6 months before the expiry, enterprises must submit dossiers of application for re-issue in case of resumption of production and sales. If the authorities check that the certificate is no longer valid, the enterprise will be subject to administrative sanctions in accordance with Decree 178/2013/ND-CP, with fines ranging from VND 300,000 to VND 15,000,000.

What are the steps to apply for the Certificate of Food Safety for companies which invest in Vietnam?

For enterprises to easily follow and implement, the order can be divided into 3 main steps as follows:

1. Food safety test at the Department of Industry and Trade or Department of Agriculture and Rural Development

2. Health check-up from district-level hospitals or higher

3. Appraisal of Business establishments and Grant of Certificate of Food Safety
