ASEAN Guidelines on Labelling Requirements for Health Supplements

At-a-glance: This annex specifies the mandatory information that must be included on health supplement labels.

Background: ASEAN members agreed to a pragmatic approach to labelling rules. The guidelines stipulate the information that must be included on a label as a minimum requirement for its sale in the ASEAN region. But they also allow scope for individual Member States to request the inclusion of additional compulsory information on a national level. Such a flexible approach is considered to be workable largely because even after harmonisation, private companies will, in general, still need to print different labels for different markets due to the variations in the languages spoken in ASEAN member countries.
