Compliance labels are used in a wide range of industries—including chemical, food, and pharmaceutical manufacturing—to meet industry standards and government regulations. Depending on the industry, the use of these labels is regulated by various organizations, such as the:
Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)
Compliance labels serve several functions, including conveying the necessary information to consumers to allow them to make informed purchasing decisions, providing directions for safe and proper use, and promoting the product’s benefits. Some of the typical label elements include:
The information contained on a compliance label and the label’s construction and performance specifications vary based on industry. For example, some industries may require enhanced durability, tamper-evident indicators, or resistance to water, UV, and chemicals. The following industries maintain specific label requirements:
Chemical labels must identify any potential hazards. If necessary, these warnings may be provided in several languages. The chemical industry also requires these labels to indicate manufacturer, importer, and other related party information, specific product identification information, and any precautionary measures.
Medical labels must be high-quality and durable, as they must withstand the stresses of a hospital environment. These labels typically contain information regarding specific product identifiers, instructions for use, and safety measures.
In the cosmetics industry, compliance labels must include ingredients along with how much product (by weight or volume) is in the package. Certain types of cosmetics also require warning labels, and some states may require warnings if the product contains certain ingredients.
Food and Beverage
On food and beverage labels, nutritional information and ingredients must be included. If the contents meet certain qualifications, such as “organic” or “gluten-free”, that status may also be indicated.
