What are the Contact Information Requirements for Air Fresheners Produced in Thailand?

June 16, 2008

We are manufacturing air freshener products in Thailand for sale directly to US retail stores. Is it permissible for us to use our Thailand Company name and address as the identity noted on the packaging, or must a US company (possibly the store) be identified? CFR 16.500.5 seems to apply only to U.S. companies.


If you distributing directly to retail stores in the U.S., then the Thailand company name and address should be used. However, if you are not distributing directly to retailers or your name does not appear as the manufacturer on the label, then the requirements in Title 16 U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Section 500.5(a) would apply. Please note that in addition to the regulations in 16 CFR 500, the package must also comply with the country of origin labeling requirements at 19 CFR 134.
