The Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) is pleased to announce accreditation of its Food Safety Laboratory, the Central Investigation Laboratory (CIL), to ISO/IEC 17025:2005, international standard for Competence of Testing Laboratories.  This recognition was conferred by the Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JANAAC) effective August 17, 2018.   With this achievement we are proud to offer greater assurance to our customers in the quality of our testing services.  Our success in this endeavour is a measure of BAHA’s commitment to quality infrastructure and customer satisfaction.

Be assured that BAHA and its dedicated staff will continue its pursuit of excellence with its ongoing efforts to improve the quality and scope of its laboratory testing services.  We remain faithfully committed to fulfilling our mandate to the people of Belize, local producers, exporters, importers, trading partners and collaborators.

The BAHA management wishes to take this opportunity to thank the donors and collaborators who helped to make this achievement a reality: the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation in Agriculture (IICA), the Caribbean Regional Organization for Standards and Quality (CROSQ), Organizacion Internacional Regional de Salud Agropecauria (OIRSA), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the European Union and the Government of Belize.
