However, in the “Other Information section”, the Date of Delivery and Country of Origin will need to meet the 1/8 inch font requirement all other wording in this section may be less than 1/8 inch.

Date of Delivery: The Date of Delivery words and blank line are still required, but the actual date is not required to be filled in. It must also meet the 1/8 inch font requirement for the upper case letters.

MADE BY / MADE FOR: These are the preferred terms accepted by all states. However, other terms such as “Manufactured By”, “Imported By” and “Distributed By” may be used.

Additional Reminders:
• Care Label: Care label information is not allowed on the law label.
• Solid Separating Line: The solid line between sections must extend from edge to edge.
• Finished Size: The symbol (“) is not allowed.

This guidance reflects the updates posted on the IABFLO website (http://iabflo.org)
