Commodity Labeling Act

Regulating general product labeling serves as a vital tool for protecting consumers and promoting transparency of product-related information. The Commodity Labeling Act was first promulgated in 1982 and has been amended 5 times to adapt to advancements in technology and changing consumer habits. The most recent amendment was made in 2022. The key revisions include:
1.Increasing flexibility in the method of labeling: electronic labeling will be allowed for products announced by the central competent authority based on their specific characteristics to meet the needs of industry. In addition, for products already placed on the market, any changes in the manufacturer's name or address may be publicly disclosed to consumers in a manner that is readily accessible at any time.
2.Incorporating obligations for on-line shopping platforms: on-line shopping platforms are responsible for providing information on the poster, supplier and seller of product listings at the request of the competent authority in a municipality government or a county (city) government. Penalties will be imposed if on-line shopping platforms evade or refuse such request.
3.Imposing different penalties on violators based on the severity of the violations: where a serious violation occurs or the product poses an immediate threat to the body or health, the competent authority in a municipality government or a county (city) government may impose the fine immediately instead of having to notify the violator and confirm that corrective actions are not taken after the given time limit.

Labeling Criteria for Specific Products

Other than the general commodity labeling requirements, there are 11 Labeling Criteria, which were adopted in accordance with Article 12 of the Commodity Labeling Act for specific products.
