Labelling

 

Labelling covers all declarations found on or accompanying a product. Mandatory statements can result from specific legal requirements like product safety law, the food information regulation, provisions on pharmaceuticals or medical devices or product liability law. Voluntary declarations, too, very often fall within a strict set of rules, for example when dealing with health and nutrition claims. Aspects of trademark and unfair competition law can further complicate the design and legal examination of packaging. In fact, the seemingly trivial exercise of product labelling depends on a number of factors. Even small errors can lead to significant consequences like marketing prohibition enforced by competitors or public authorities. We rely on our comprehensive expertise to allow for legally compliant packaging and accompanying documents, e.g. instruction leaflets.
