To satisfy the requirement of the Act that cautionary labeling statements shall appear ``prominently'' on the label of a hazardous substance, all such statements shall be placed on the label as follows: ==(1) Horizontal placement of labeling statements== Except for the name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, distributor, or seller, all cautionary material required by the Act shall appear in lines that are generally parallel to any base on which the package rests as it is designed to be displayed for sale or, on display panels other than the principal display panel, in lines generally parallel to all other labeling on that panel. This requirement does not apply to labeling on collapsible tubes, cylindrical containers with a narrow diameter, or F-type containers where both the '''front'' and '''back'' of the container are principal display panels. (See paragraph (e) of this section.) ==(2) Principal display panel labeling== (i) All items of cautionary labeling required by the Act may appear on the principal display panel on the immediate container and, if appropriate, on any other container or wrapper. See paragraph (b)(4) of this section for requirements and exceptions for labeling outer containers and wrappings. (ii) The signal word, the statement of principal hazard(s), and, if appropriate, instructions to read carefully any cautionary material that may be placed elsewhere on the label shall be blocked together within a square or rectangular area, with or without a border, on the principal display panel on the immediate container and, where required by paragraph (b)(4) of this section, on any outer container or wrapping. All cautionary statements placed on the principal display panel shall be separated on all sides from other printed or graphic matter, with the exception of the declaration of net contents required under the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, 15 U.S.C. 1453(a) (2) and (3), by a border line or by a space no smaller than the minimum allowable height of the type size for cautionary material required by the Act (exclusive of signal words and statements of hazard) on the principal display panel. (iii) Depending on the design of the package or the configuration of the label, or both, a package may have more than one principal display panel. If so, each principal display panel must bear, at a minimum, the signal word, statement of principal hazard or hazards, and, if appropriate, instructions to read carefully any cautionary material that may be placed elsewhere on the label. (A) Where the principal display panel of the immediate container consists of a lid, cap, or other item which may be separated from the immediate container and discarded, the container shall be deemed to have a second principal display panel elsewhere on the immediate container which must bear, at a minimum, the signal word, statement of principal hazard(s), and instructions, if appropriate, to read any cautionary material which may be placed elsewhere on the label. ==(3) Prominent label placement--other display panel labeling== All items of cautionary labeling required by the Act which do not appear on the principal display panel shall be placed together on a display panel elsewhere on the container. The name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, distributor, or seller may appear separately on any display panel. Where cautionary material appears on a display panel other than the principal display panel, the principal display panel shall bear the statement '''Read carefully other cautions on the ------ panel,''' or its practical equivalent. [A description of the location of the other panel is to be inserted in the blank space.] ==(4) Outer container or wrappings== All cautionary labeling appearing on the immediate container of a hazardous substance shall also appear on any outer container or wrapping used in the retail display of the substance, in the same manner as required for the immediate container. Those cautionary labeling statements appearing on the immediate container which are clearly legible through any outer container or wrapper used in retail display need not appear on the outer container or wrapping itself. (See section 2(n)(1) of the Act.) ==(5) Placement of the word '''Poison''' and the skull and crossbones symbol== The word '''poison''' and, when appropriate, the skull and crossbones symbol shall appear on the label of a hazardous substance as follows: (i) If a hazardous substance is '''highly toxic''', as defined in Sec. 1500.3(c)(i) and section 2(h)(1) of the FHSA, the label must bear the word '''poison''' in accordance with section 2(p)(1)(H) of the Act, in addition to the signal word '''DANGER''' and must also bear the skull and crossbones symbol. Some products, under Sec. 1500.14(b) of the regulations, may, in addition to any required signal word, be required to bear the word '''poison''' and the skull and crossbones symbol because of the special hazard associated with their ingredients. In both instances, the word '''poison''' and the skull and crossbones symbol need not appear on the principal display panel on the container, unless all other cautionary labeling required by the Act appears on the principal display panel. The word '''poison''' and the skull and crossbones symbol, when required, must appear either together with other cautionary labeling on a display panel other than the principal display panel or together with the signal word and statement(s) of principal hazard on the principal display panel. (ii) Where, pursuant to a regulation issued under section 3(b) of the Act, the label of a hazardous substance requires the word '''poison''' instead of a signal word, the word, '''POISON''' shall appear in capital letters on the principal display panel, together with the statement(s) of the principal hazard. Certain substances for which the word '''poison''' is required instead of any signal word are listed in Sec. 1500.129. ==Nexreg Compliance CPSC U.S. Consumer Label Authoring Services== Nexreg Compliance can author a CPSC compliant American label for your product.
