Regulatory Language for NAFTA Labels

This section provides information on how to develop a NAFTA label.  Generic issues with the format and regulatory language for a NAFTA label have been worked out. However, developing NAFTA labels for existing products presents unique issues resulting from differences in how the products are currently labeled in the two countries and fitting larger NAFTA labels on the very small containers of some existing products.

As more labels are worked through the process and their associated issues are addressed this information will be updated.  If, when considering your specific label, issues arise that are not addressed here, please contact the appropriate contact within EPA, PMRA, or TPD.

The preferred format for a NAFTA label is a harmonized container (base) label with two separate booklets, one for the United States and one for Canada, that contain the country-specific directions for use.  We are working collectively to develop a more cost-effective strategy to deliver product booklets.

Questions often arise concerning the requirement in Canada for a bilingual, English and French, label.  Thus far, this has been handled in one of two ways. 

In both cases, the Canadian directions-for-use booklet is produced in both English and French.
