Veterinary Drugs Registration

Animal Health Department

A Veterinary Drugs and Animal Feed Registration Unit has been established in BAHA to promote the safe use and control of veterinary medicine and biologicals and animal feed in Belize. This unit is located at the BAHA office in Orange Walk Town. Importers of veterinary medicinal products and animal feed can register their products to be sold on the market. The unit ensures that international code of practices for the safe use of veterinary drugs as promoted by Codex Alimentarius is followed so that consumers can not only be assured of the provision of safe and effective veterinary medicinal products on the market, but that residues of these products in animal origin food is absent or below the internationally accepted Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) levels established for the drug. The BAHA Orange Walk staff provides the regulatory laboratory support for this unit.
