Food Supplement Registration in Peru

Food Supplement Registration in Peru - Overview

The Regulatory framework for foods and dietary supplements has been developed by the Peruvian Ministry of Health (MoH) which includes registration and labeling requirements, claims, and marketing authorizations. The authorized body responsible for granting marketing authorizations is the General Directorate of Medicines, Supplies, and Drugs (DIGEMID).

In Peru, food supplements are categorized as both foods and dietary or pharmaceutical products depending on their presentation and health claims.

Dietary products in food form without health claims are regulated by the "General Directorate of Environmental Health and Food Safety - DIGESA" (Dirección General de Salud Ambiental e Inocuidad Alimentaria). These products are regarded as foods and are regulated accordingly. Dietary supplements in pharmaceutical format (such as pills, tablets, capsules, etc.) and/or with health claims are regulated by the "General Directorate of Medicines, Supplies, and Drugs - DIGEMID" (Dirección General de Medicamentos, Insumos y Drogas). These products are considered dietary products and are subject to the regulations established for Pharmaceuticals.
