Introduction

ISO/IEC 22603 is a multi-part International Standard that establishes the requirements for electronic

product labelling. Electronic product labelling is an alternative to having a product’s compliance

markings and other product information used to communicate product conformance to stated national

standards and regulations on the product’s nameplate or product label. Electronic product labelling can

exist in combination with traditional physical product markings and statements.
Electronic product labelling can be applicable to any type of product.

Product markings and technical statements can communicate product conformance to national

standards and regulations. While many products are decreasing in physical size, mandatory

requirements for additional product compliance markings and documents are growing, in part because:

— regulators are increasing the required number of product markings and statements on products to

designate compliance with the mandatory product regulations;

— third party test or certification organizations are developing registered trademark symbols to be

affixed on products that they have tested/certified;

— product conformance to new standards and regulations on domains, such as “Environmental,” leads

to new categories of product marks and statements;
— a growing number of global regulators each with unique labelling requirements.

The physical limitations to accommodate the proliferation of printed compliance labels and information

cause confusion among regulators and end-users. An alternative method using an electronic system to

communicate product compliance information, used in conjunction with existing labelling practices or

as an alternative to them, allows the regulatory objectives to be achieved with better uniformity of

execution, clarity of language, greater flexibility and control.
Some expected benefits include:

— environmental gains from less reducing labelling material usage or wastage from label obsolescence;

— less visual clutter on the product by achieving improved aesthetics and clarity;

— facilitates faster end-user access to relevan
