Panama Import Regs.: Labeling/Marking

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 6:05 am

The labelling on imported products may be in the language of origin; however, in accordance with National Technical Standard No. 52 of 1978 another additional label, with a description of the contents and instructions for use in Spanish, must be stuck to the packaging.

Labels should include:
- name and address of the manufacturer
- expiration date
- list of ingredients
- lot number
- product form, e.g. powder, liquid, etc.

Labels for medicines, household products and foods which require special instructions regarding dosage, usage, warnings, etc., must be in Spanish. Otherwise labels in English are accepted.

All goods arriving in Panama intended to be reexported immediately must be marked "PANAMA IN TRANSIT" on each box or outside container.
