Related tags Import Export

Malaysia last week announced the lowering of restrictions on food imported from Japan into the country, according to Japan’s ministry of agriculture.

Under the new norms of import, Malaysia no longer requires food produced in areas surrounding the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant be tested for radioactivity.

Japanese exporters will now have to submit only proof of origin to the Malaysian government, which itself inspect all imported food harvested or processed in the eight Japanese prefectures near Fukushima

Till June 30, exporters shipping food made at these prefectures needed to submit proof of origin, and a certification that any radioactive contamination of the food was below Malaysian safety levels.
