In 2014 the Ministry of Agriculture approved the regulation on the control of the traceability and transparency in the production of Ibérico ham. The Ibérico Ham Seals guarantee the quality and authenticity of the parts.
"It ensures that the part is effectively Ibérico pork and indicates the type of feed and rearing that the pig has had, as well as its breed"
The regulation identifies four categories of Ibérico pork and differentiates them using four seals, located on the hoof of the hams.
