LAOS: Registration of All Packaged Products Now Mandatory

All pre-packaged products traded in or with Laos as will now have to be registered in their original packaged form with the Ministry of Science and Technology prior to being exported, imported, re-packaged, sold or distributed. The regulation extends across a wide range of products, including cosmetics, foodstuffs, beverages, fertilisers, paints and fuel.

The move comes as part of a government bid to bring the country’s packaging and labelling standards in line with other ASEAN member states as well as with international best practice.
