Por: Karina Loza


We would like to inform you that on April 16, 2024, the Official Gazette No. 540 published the Resolution of the National Agency for Regulation, Control and Sanitary Surveillance (ARCSA) No. ARCSA-2024-005-R, which establishes the fees for the issuance of the Certificate of Sanitary Requirement and the Certificate of No Sanitary Notification Requirement.

This measure directly affects products such as:

  1. Processed foods,

  2. Pesticides, cosmetics, and hygienic products,

  3. Medicines and medical devices.

The resolution took effect immediately upon publication, defining the specific costs for obtaining these sanitary certifications. Below are the updated values:

  • Sanitary Notification Requirement or Non-Requirement Certificate: $37.18

  • Sanitary Registration Requirement or Non-Requirement Certificate: $37.18

It is crucial to note that ARCSA has a two-month period from the date of publication of this regulation to make the necessary adjustments in their computer system to properly manage these charges.
