Abstract

These Regulations, made under section 74 of the Fisheries and Marine Resources Act, no. 27 of 2007, amend the Fisheries and Marine Resources (Import of Fish and Fish Products) Regulations 2012 dealing with health, hygiene and quality standards for imported fish products. They, among other things, amend the rules of procedure for the importation of fish and amend the definition of “fish products” so as to exclude pharmaceutical products containing derivatives from fish. The rules of procedure concern the application for registration as an importer and an import permit. A new regulation (7A) allows a person who imports a consignment of fish or fish products in Mauritius without holding a valid — (a) registration certificate issued under regulation 4; or (b) permit issued under regulation 5, may — (i) on payment of the appropriate annual fee, together with the additional fee, specified in the Third Schedule; and (ii) subject to such conditions as may be specified in the guidelines or as the authorised officer may impose, to be issued with a registration certificate and a permit.
