Food supplements in Vietnam are regulated by the Ministry of Health (MOH), which is in charge of defining and issuing the major regulations on Food supplement management. The Food Agency of Vietnam (VFA) under the MOH is responsible for issuing specific guidelines for enforcing rules and measures, evaluating the product’s notifications, and conducting post-market inspections.

Vietnam requires all food supplement to registered at Food Agency – Vietnam Ministry of Health prior to importation and commercialisation onto the market. The registration of food supplementary products is not difficult comparing with that of pharmaceutical products but also takes about 2-3 months. The difference in understanding about certificates (i.e CFS, GMPc etc) of foreign countries is often the big matter during this registration. With many experiences dealing with such requests from authorities in many projects for many products from many countries, our team are confident to support you to prepare appropriate documents to explain and persuade the authorities in the most effective way.
