The Ministry of Production - Trade Secretariat announced Resolution 465/2018, which establishes the “Technical Regulation on the Labeling Requirements Applicable to All Types of Footwear,” on August 10, 2018.  This repeals the Resolution No. 508 of 1999, Resolution No. 44 of 2013, Provisions No. 915 of 1999, No. 916 of 1999, No. 921 of 1999 and No. 996 of 1999. This new regulation on labeling will provide more accurate information to prevent deception and not mislead consumers. The effective date will be 180 days following publication.

Leather stamped, embossed, dyed or process to simulate another type, must indicate the actual material.  Material that is made of leather fibers, must be labeled “LEATHER AGGLOMERATE” (“AGLOMERADO DE CUERO”).  For textile materials, it must be indicated as “TEXTIL.”  Synthetic fibers are identified as “SYNTHETIC” (“SINTÉTICO”) with the type of material as optional to list. “RUBBER” (CAUCHO”) is indicated for vulcanized, synthetic or natural rubber.


The information must in the national language, clear, visible and indelible. The character height must not be less than one millimeter.

The information must be permanent, by either printing, marking, stamping, or stitching etc.
