Ministerial ordinance on standards for labeling of the steel or aluminum beverage cans and polyethylene terephthalate beverage or specified sauce containers

 Alerts
Japan - Ministerial ordinance on standards for labeling of the steel or aluminum beverage cans and polyethylene terephthalate beverage or specified sauce containers published. 

Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry requires manufacturers to include specific marks indicating waste separation practices on specified products in order to promote the use of recyclable resources. In regard to steel or aluminum beverage cans and polyethylene terephthalate beverage or specified sauce containers, a significant amount of time has passed since the original enactment of the ministerial ordinances and waste separation practices. Therefore, the following amendments will be made to a) enable manufacturers to secure label space and b) promote further efforts to reduce the amount of waste and to encourage recycling of materials. Meanwhile, the size of required food labeling has been reduced because smaller beverage containers have become popular and the required amount of food safety information which must be displayed has increased.

(1) Reduce the minimum size of the required printed or affixed indication marks for steel or aluminum beverage cans and polyethylene terephthalate beverage or specified sauce containers.

(2) With regard to polyethylene terephthalate beverage or specific sauce containers, printed or affixed indication marks for individual containers (excluding engraved indication marks to which no amendments have been made) can be omitted when exterior containers and packaging display the required marks.

Proposed date of adoption:Around March of 2020

Proposed date of entry into force1 April 2020; (Current required printed or affixed indication marks continue to be valid.)

Final date for comments: 60 days from notification
