A new web platform of SIECA aims to simplify and harmonize
procedures for the sanitary registration of processed foods and
beverages in Central America.
The Regional Integration System for Health Records (in
Spanish, SIRRS) is a regional automated system for the recognition
of medical records that will be managed by SIECA to simplify and
harmonize the procedures to obtain the health records of processed
foods and beverages in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua
and Costa Rica.
The recognition procedure of health records is not new
what is new is the web platform that will integrate all countries
of Central America making the procedure easier and quicker.
Applies for health records obtained in any country of Central
America provided that the product is original from that country and
not from other different from the region.
It is expected that the implementation of the system will
reduce costs associated with these processes.
