Chile Import Regs.: Labeling/Marking

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 3:36 am

US qualified exports under the US-Chile FTA are generally subject to the rules enumerated below:

* Imported products customarily consumed by the public must display the country of origin on them before being sold in Chile.

* Packaged goods must be marked to show the quality, purity, ingredients, or mixtures, and the net weight or measure of the contents.

* Canned or packaged foodstuffs must bear labels in Spanish for all ingredients, including additives, manufacturing and expiration dates of the products, and the name of the producer or importer.

*All labels must contain the following information, in Spanish, regardless of what other description or text appears: (a) name of manufacturer or importer or registered brand; (b) country of manufacture; (c) size and weight converted to metric system; (d) quality, purity, ingredients, or mixtures; and (e) expiration date for canned or packaged foodstuffs.

* All sizes and weights of the net contents must be converted to the metric system.

* Goods not complying with these measurements may be imported but not sold to consumers until conversion is made. Thus, foodstuffs labeled in English have to be re-labeled in Chile before they can be sold.
