The FDA has very specific requirements for the labels of the products it regulates. In particular, the FDA requires certain statements to be made on the Principal Display Panel (PDP) of many FDA-regulated products, such as the Net Quantity of Contents, Statement of Identity, etc. However, it must be noted that the label requirements differ based on product classification. For example, while food labels must bear Nutrition Facts Panels, dietary supplements (although a subset of the food classification) are required to display Supplement Facts Panels. In addition, when products are packaged in both outer and inner containers, the general labeling requirements may differ. More information about inner and outer packaging requirements under FDA regulations may be accessed here.
As you can see, because the labeling regulations are quite complicated and highly-technical, we help our clients by providing label reviews. Label reviews and are a key way of how we help our clients ensure that their product labels are fully compliant with the FDA’s outer packaging requirements.
