United States Fair Packaging and Labeling Act
The Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA or Act), enacted in 1967, directs the Federal Trade Commission and the Food and Drug Administration to issue regulations requiring that all "consumer commodities" be labeled to disclose net contents, identity of commodity, and name and place of business of the product's manufacturer, packer, or distributor.
So you need to say on your package:
- What is the product.
- What are the contents.
- Who and where is the company.
United States Consumer Product Safety Commission
Children’s products that are designed or intended primarily for use by children ages 12 or younger must have distinguishing permanent marks (generally referred to as “tracking labels”) that are:
- Affixed to the product and its packaging and
- Provide certain identifying information.
All tracking labels must contain certain basic information, including:
Manufacturer or private labeler name;
Location and date of production of the product;
Detailed information on the manufacturing process, such as a batch or run number, or other identifying characteristics; and
Any other information to facilitate ascertaining the specific source of the product.
All tracking label information should be visible and legible.
Compliance with the tracking label requirement will help improve the effectiveness and response rates for future recalls. It also helps CPSC staff and companies in the chain of commerce. When a component has been identified as the source of a hazard or violation, the tracking label helps identify other products that may contain the same component.
And most importantly:
By code, they mean a Batch ID. Your manufacturer will add a Batch ID number to each order. This allows your manufacturer to look up the date and location of each batch they create. As long as you have a Batch ID, you have fulfilled that requirement, because all the necessary info can be retrieved through this ID number.
