The way that manufacturers label their products, particularly when providing warnings and instructions to consumers, will need to change dramatically to comply with the provisions of the new Consumer Protection Act, 2008 (CPA), which is due to become operational on 1 April 2011.


Section 24 of the CPA makes it clear that manufacturers will have to reassess the manner in which product labels and trade descriptions are drafted and how such labels describe the attributes, use and benefits applicable to its products when described by such manufacturer on the particular good in question or in inserted documentation which is included in the product.
