  2. The honey originates from an establishment which has been approved by the Veterinary Authorities of the exporting country for the harvesting, processing, packing and labeling of honey for export.

  3. The honey has been processed to remove all impurities.

  4. The consignment is accompanied with results of laboratory analysis with regards to moistures, ash, acidity, apparent reducing sugars, apparent sucrose and water-insoluble matter.

  5. The honey does not contain prohibited substances and residues of veterinary medicinal products in excess of MRLs in accordance with the recommendations of the latest version of the Codex Alimentarius.

The following document provides instructions on how to complete certificate template number EX188B (within the Next Export Documentation system (NEXDOC) Portal):

Mauritian import permit conditions may change without notice and exporters must ensure that their import permit attestation requirements are covered by endorsement 611. A Free Text Endorsement may be requested in NEXDOC if new attestations are required.
