Ensure Your Food Labels Are Compliant With Global Regulations

This paper gives an overview of labeling regulations and requirements for the US, EU, and Chinese markets. It examines the impact of the recent BRC Food Safety Issue 7 changes on global legislation standards and regulations in respect of the statutory information displayed on packaging and labels. It details all relevant labeling information a manufacturer needs to know to minimize the threat of both product recalls and potential serious health issues for end customers which mislabelling can cause.

The white paper explains:

  • US, EU & Chinese label regulations 
  • The impact of the BRC & IFS standards and the recent changes 
  • The role of vision inspection applications in label control programs

The release of the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Food Safety Issue 7 added a new section to their regulations specifically dealing with print and label quality. The EU’s Food Information Law (or Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011) is still taking full effect. The FDA updated their Food Label Guide in 2013 and has recently published a new design guideline for the display of nutrition information on food product labels. All these are clear indications how customer safety through correct labelling is becoming a global industry concern.
