National Regulations Governing Labels:

In New Zealand hazardous substances are regulated by the Hazardous Substance and New Organisms (HSNO) Act 1996. Labeling criteria, based on provisions in the HSNO can be found in HSNOCOP code 10 (Labeling of Hazardous Substances) approved in 2008. For more information on Hazardous substance regulations, policy, and for links to guides please refer to the Environmental Protection Agency.

 

Additional Regulations:

While the legislation that governs consumer and industrial hazardous substance labels in New Zealand is the same, the concerns of industry and individual consumers may differ. Business can find helpful guides for product compliance, relevant legislation and contact information at the New Zealand Ministry of Consumer Affairs. The ministry can also provide insight into the concerns, and common product/service problems of business stakeholders.

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
