By Zoila Palma: The Ministry of Health today issued a press release informing all importers of Pharmaceutical and Herbal products that a moratorium is being implemented immediately on all new pharmaceuticals and herbal products into the Belizean market.

The Ministry says this is necessary as it is involved in the development of a drug registry.

The ministry advises that in order to import pharmaceuticals or herbal preparations, vendors must be licensed as an importer with the Ministry of Health’s Licensing and Accreditation Unit.
The Ministry of Health is also in the process of reviewing the application for importation of medications by “Peddlers”.

The ministry also informs that the list of items that are currently being traded need to be upgraded to include the following: Name of Product, Name of Active Ingredients, Quantities to be Imported, and Expiry Date of Product.
