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.
