The Ministry of Production (PRODUCE) is issuing Certificates of Catch and of Origin and Legal Origin of hydrobiological products, which are authorized by digital signature for export to various countries.
To date, 13 Catch Certificates have been issued for hake destined for Germany and 7 for mackerel destined for Spain. Likewise, 3 certificates were issued for tuna destined for Italy.
In addition, 4 Certificates of Provenance and Legal Origin of hydrobiological products were issued to Chile.
At this time there are two service channels: Certificates of Catch of hake are made through the PRODUCE website and the certificates of the other resources can be processed through the digital presentation of the files.
For this, PRODUCE has enabled the Digital Processing Platform (PTD), so that exporters have the facilities for the continuity of fishing activity.
