Packaging, Labeling, and Marking Regulations and the GATT Policy Negotiations

In relation to the GATT Policy Negotiations, Christopher Mark (1993) provided the following explanation and/or definition of Packaging, Labeling, and Marking Regulations: National requirements that importers must package their goods in certain kinds of containers or identify the contents in a particular way. Such measures are normally intended to meet domestic policy objectives, such as consumer protection, but may be regarded as a nontariff barrier to the extent that they pose more problems for producers of imported goods than for domestic producers.
