Tue, Jan 29, 2013, 11:25 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka has made it compulsory for all industries which use salt to register with the Director General of Health.

A permit from the Director General of Health, the authority on food, is needed for importing, purchasing, transportation and storing salt.

Major salt related industries use salt for iodizing, clothing pigmentation, food fermentation and preservation, fertilizer, purification of water of swimming pools, and drying fish and other fisheries industry segments.

Industrialists that are engaged in these industries are needed to register before the main food authority of the relevant sector to obtain salt for their industries.

Under the article 26 of the 1980 Food Act, the purchasing, storing and transporting salt is subjected to license and the offenders can be prosecuted in a Magistrate's Court and penalized.
