Mexico Amends Labelling and Packaging Requirements for Cleaning Products
Mexico has amended its mandatory labelling and packaging requirements for domestically-produced and imported household cleaning products, including soaps, detergents, cleaners, bleaches, starches for external use, disinfectants, stain removers, deodorants and air fresheners. Among other things, the new standard (NOM-189-SSA1/SCFI-2018) seeks to clarify certain provisions and allow the use of additional symbols for products containing poisonous or corrosive substances. Household cleaning products will have to comply with the new labelling and packaging requirements by 13 December 2019.
