In a context of strengthening and developing the national laboratory capacity of Guatemala, and to continue with the improvement trend, it is necessary to establish a system that facilitates the import of laboratory samples to the country, taking into consideration that they are samples for the purpose of sampling.
In this context, the Working Group of the STDF (Standards and Trade Development Facility) of the WTO provides its support to Guatemala for the elaboration of the new proposal for the handling of laboratory samples by the national authorities when entering the country.
The overall objective of the project was to develop a project proposal for the development of a biosecurity-based import system for laboratory samples in Guatemala that can be submitted for funding.
