In the former, the provisions relating to food hygiene are covered by Sub Chapters A, B, C, D and E of Chapter VI (Environmental Health Act). The Guam Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act was added as a new Sub-Chapter W to Chapter VI . This act is modelled after the United States Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and provides the authority to regulate local manufacturing and distribution of food, drugs and cosmetics and also the importation of these Items.
