Memorandum of Understanding for Cooperation signed between NAH and the Food And Drug Administration of The Islamic Republic of Iran

On 1 March 2018 within the framework of the Ministerial meeting of Mihály Varga Minister for National Economy and H.E. Dr. Hassan Ghazizadeh Hashemi, Minister of Health and Medical Education of The Islamic Republic of Iran a Memorandum of Understanding for Cooperation was signed between the National Accreditation Authority and the Food And Drug Administration of Iran.

Contributing to the government's "Eastern Opening" policy, NAH's priority aim is to develop the Halal accreditation in order to help the export of domestic products to the Gulf countries, particularly in respect to the agriculture, food and cosmetics sectors.

Therefore, this signed cooperation – even going beyond these goals - between Hungary and Iran is not only considered to be highly important for NAH, but also for the whole country: the sharing of expertise covers all the aforementioned sectors, but also affects the industry of medical devices and laboratories.

As a result of the future common work– supported with a two year working plan prepared in the near future – the bilateral trade relations based on mutual trust will be strengthened. The cooperation in the field of accreditation will contribute to the gradual decrease of technical barriers to trade, thus helping domestic businesses to engage in export-oriented activities in Iran.
