The European Union may be the most recognized example of a customs union, but when it comes to consumer product labeling, the 28 individual jurisdictions often have very distinct requirements and often onerous enforcement policies. Inconsistent EU labeling requirements for garments, footwear, and (leather) accessories and the recent rash of aggressive enforcement actions in some countries continue to be a significant concern for apparel companies importing merchandise into the EU.
PwC provided insights into developments in this area, alongw ith other requirements under CITES and REACH. Executives from PwC Netherlands presented this one-hour webinar and answered questions from the audience.
