 COnsumer Product Labels

 

Compliant labels for regulated products.

Consumer products are regulated in the US and many countries. Everything from electronics to household cleansers require proper labeling for the health and safety of consumers. At DLS, we work closely with you to create labels that comply with laws and standards of safety.

 

 Consumer Packaging & Labeling Regulations

DLS will work closely with you to create labels that comply with any regulating body of the government. Here are some of the regulations our customers need assistance with when creating labels:

 

Federal Hazardous Substances Act (FHSA)


The FHSA is federal law mandated by Consumer Product Safety Commission. The FHSA “requires precautionary labeling on the immediate container of hazardous household products to help consumers safely store and use those products and to give them information about immediate first aid steps to take if an accident happens.”

 

OSHA has similar label regulations regarding chemical substances in the workplace. These rules are called the OSHA Hazard Communication Standards.

 

Our label application specialists work with to create labels that properly communicate product and safety information for households and workplaces.

Fair Packaging and Labeling Act


According to the regulating body, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), "The Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA or Act), enacted in 1967, directs the Federal Trade Commission and the Food and Drug Administration to issue regulations requiring that all 'consumer commodities' be labeled to disclose net contents, identity of commodity, and name and place of business of the product's manufacturer, packer, or distributor. The Act authorizes additional regulations where necessary to prevent consumer deception (or to facilitate value comparisons) with respect to descriptions of ingredients, slack fill of packages, use of 'cents-off' or lower price labeling, or characterization of package sizes."

 

Under this law, labels have three basic requirements:

 

  1. A statement that identifies the commodity (e.g. hand soap).
  2. The name and place of business of the manufacturer, distributor or packer.
  3. The net quantity of contents (measurement must be in both metric and Imperial/English units).

Proposition 65


Prop 65 is also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. This regulation arose from growing concerns for exposures to chemicals that cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.

 

Today, the list of chemicals that require warnings continues to grow to more than 850. Prop 65, however, does not ban the sale of products containing these chemicals.

 

For your customers who are product manufacturers, packagers, producers, importers, suppliers or distributors, compliance is mandatory.
