MYANMAR: Six Month Deadline Announced for Local Language Labelling of Imports
After 26 April next year, it will be illegal to sell imported goods in any one of the nine categories unless local language labelling is attached. The nine designated categories are food items, home appliances, children’s products, communications equipment, pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, chemicals, cosmetics and professional equipment, with the labels expected to provide instructions for use, storage advice, warnings of toxic content and information on potential side effects.
Any business failing to comply with the deadline may be fined or have its operating licence rescinded.
