Bangladesh parliament passes new legislation on salt iodization

Under the proposed law, a 14-member national salt committee - with the industries secretary as its chairman - will be formed to oversee the nation’s production, processing, refining, storage, transportation and marketing of salt, use of iodine in salt, supply of iodine to salt producers as well as regulation of salt importation. It replaces the previous Iodine Deficiency Disease Prevention Act of 1989.
