I don’t believe any of our clients sell their food products in the Federated States of Micronesia, but if they do, they’ll want to know about the following change in food labeling laws there:
Another measure that was signed from the Kosrae session is Public Law 14-59, which amends Title 41 of the FSM Code by adding a new section to the National Food Safety Act.
Under the new Section 1006 A, on Food Labeling, the new law requires that all imported food items sold in the FSM, must be labeled in English.
The law further notes that the new requirement should not “prevent the importation of fresh fruits and vegetables.”
In today’s globalized society, it’s important to stay up to date on regulations from all over the world. That’s why Nexreg is constantly on the lookout for changes to government laws – even in Micronesia!
