What do I have to put on the packaging? Must you equip your product with tangible notices of hazards or with a child-proof cap? Labelling a product and its packaging is an extensive task. The requirements of the CE regulations, the pertinent product standards, WEEE and RoHS as well as those of the packaging ordinance must all be implemented. If one markets chemical products, then there are additional, far-reaching labelling obligations from GHS/CLP or special statutory regulations such as, for example, for biocide and washing and cleaning agents.
One must clarify the extent of the information, placement and (font) size of the various labels, the right labelling for all intermediate packaging and repackaging, and the requirements that apply to sales and transport packaging. And also the applicability of possible packaging simplifications and compilation of information for one’s online shop.
There is much room for error here. This is why we generally recommend that you have the product labelling and packaging checked extensively before production begins, namely before the inspection authorities do this for you during their market visits.
