Amman — On Tuesday, Jordan Food and Drug Administration (JFDA) Director-General Nizar Mhaidat directed the easing of JDFA regulations for the industrial sector through preparing separate lists of products and countries that require the International Standard Certificate (ISO22716) and the Jordanian Standard Certificate of the Jordanian Society for Microbial Biodiversity (JMB).اضافة اعلان

During a meeting with industrialists at the Jordan Chamber of Industry, the JFDA chief urged an enhanced role by JFDA staff at border crossings and a specialized team to register local and imported products in separate categories.

Mhaidat announced extending the JFDA employees’ work at Amman and Aqaba customs centers for 24 hours as of next month, stressing JFDA support of the national industry to help it overcome challenges and ease procedures.

Industrialists called for equating the ISO with the JMB certificate, especially for beauty and personal care products, chemicals, and detergents, and speeding up field surveys carried out by the JFDA on factories for this purpose.

They stressed the importance of applying the principle of reciprocity with countries imposing challenging registration procedures on imports from Jordan.
