VIETNAM: Seafood Set For Expedited Export Regime
Compliance procedures for seafood exports are to be streamlined in response to concerns over the high costs and lengthy delays associated with current regulations on technical and food safety standards.
Although details of the revised regime have yet to be released, a formal announcement is expected within the next 90 days. At present, it has been claimed that it can take up to 15 days for certain seafood categories to receive a formal export clearance.
