Description
Issued a decision requiring that labels of all rice (products falling under HS code 1006) marketed in Italy indicate the country in which the product was grown, processed and packaged. The measure will be effective from 16 February 2018 until 31 December 2020, on a trial basis, or until rules on origin labelling are implemented at the European Union level.
