Peru Manufactured/Industrialized Goods Marking Requirements

Postby bridgat » Tue Nov 18, 2008 6:56 am

The GOP issued Law #28405 on November 19, 2004 and subsequent implemenation regulations, as well as Supreme Decree 020-2005 PRODUCE of May 26, 2005, which places the above Law into effect as of June 1, 2005. Shipments and confirmed orders made prior to effective date law are grandfathered from the effects of this Law.

This Law requires that many industrialized and manufactured products (Annex 1 to the above Regulatory document to Law 28405 contains the list of goods subject to this Law -- for more information call 1-800-USATRADE) will be required to label the equipment, packaging, and containers to carry the following markings (preferably in Spanish, but not necessarily):

Name or type of product
Country of manufacture -- origin (Note: or the location where the last
transformation prior to final shipment to consuming destination)
If the product is perishable
Expiration date
Preservation requirements
Other consumer protection observations

The selected goods (imported or locally produced) must meet these requirements and the responsibility to ensure compliance lies with the importer or manufacturer/producer.

Sunat, the Peruvian customs authority, is the Official Agency designated to enforce this Law for imported goods with the assistance of Indecopi (particularly in cases where other labeling or markings are required under separate legislation). Indecopi is the enforcing agency for domestic producers.
