Product Labelling: Bad Press for Electrical Manufacturers and Internet Retailers

The Guardian’s coverage of product labelling highlights a lack of compliance for many businesses manufacturing and retailing electrical and electronic products.

The Guardian’s coverage of product labelling highlights a lack of compliance for many businesses manufacturing and retailing electrical and electronic products. MarketWatch, a European-wide campaign group, investigated compliance with EU labelling regimes such as Ecodesign, Energy Labelling and WEEE and found numerous deficiencies, particularly amongst internet retailers. MarketWatch intends to report non-compliant businesses to the national regulators, such as the UK’s National Measurement and Regulation Office (the NMRO).

Burges Salmon’s environment and product stewardship team advise clients on product labelling compliance and regulatory enforcement, including NMRO and trading standards investigations. We also acted for an electronic goods importer in one of the first NMRO investigations into product compliance under the EU RoHS regime.
