Whereas the provisions of Peruvian legislation on health inspection and monitoring of fishery products may be considered equivalent to those laid down in Directive 91/493/EEC;

Whereas, in Peru the Ministerio de Salud, Dirección General de Salud Ambiental ('Digesa`) is capable of effectively verifying the application of the laws in force;
