Declaration of Compliance


The European Packaging Legislation (Directive 94/62/EC) implements the provisions that relate to the essential requirements for packaging. Etiquette Labels Ltd complies with "The Directive" ensuring that all packaging produced for sale in the United Kingdom and European Union fulfills the essential requirements and is within the heavy metal concentration limits (please refer to PS&QM I I 18 for further detail regarding heavy metal compliance).


The Regulations do not apply to packaging for export outside of the EU.


Etiquette is committed to the production of safe, legal and high quality self adhesive labels. To this end, detailed specifications are agreed with laminate suppliers, ensuring that appropriate products can be selected to produce the right labels for our customers, based on the information that our customers supply to us.


All Etiquette suppliers comply with the provisions of "The Directive". We can thus guarantee to produce our customer's labels to a safe and legal standard.

Unless specifically requested to the contrary by a customer, none of our laminates include any post-consumer recycled materials.


It is our customers' responsibility to ensure that all local, legal Codes of Practice are adhered to when specifying labels for export.


Detailed storage information can be found on carton labels for each delivery. Customers should also be aware that the composition of certain adhesives changes over time. Most labels have a shelf life that expires after 12 months and is dependent on correct storage of our product.


This information is for guidance only. It is based on our most up-to-date knowledge and experience.

All statements, technical and recommendations, are given in good faith and are based on tests that we believe to be reliable, but do not constitute a guarantee or warranty. We give no guarantee as to the suitability of the product for a specific application, this should be tested by the user.
