The Plant Protection Department notes that according to clause 1 Article 14 of Decree No. 15/2018/ND-CP , prepackaged plant products (used as foods) shall be excluded from the requirement of registration on the List of countries that export the products to Vietnam.
Accordingly, prepackaged plant products (used as foods) may be imported from any country without having to belong to the registered countries.
However, prepackaged plant products are only eligible for self-declaration of food safety according to clause 1 Article 4 of Decree No. 15/2018/ND-CP when they are processed products.
