Product Safety

Mandatory information standards are introduced to ensure that consumers are provided with important details of a product to enable them to make appropriate personal choices. Information standards require suppliers to give consumers prescribed information when they purchase specified goods for example, ingredient labeling for cosmetics, labeling for tobacco products and care labeling for clothing and textile products. While information standards may be safety related, they need not be.
