Amendments to food labeling and advertising Regulations
Sep 09, 2022
The Ministry of Health amended several articles of the regulations on advertising for food and non-alcoholic beverages, which will allow such products to display seals or legends of recommendation or recognition by professional organizations or associations only if they do not have any labeling for excess calories. In addition, it extended such regulation to advertisements that are broadcasted on the Internet and digital platforms.
With a decree issued in the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF: 08/09/2022) the agency reformed part of the regulations of the Sanitary Control of Products and Services and the General Health Law on Advertising to regulate the messages of these products in open and restricted television, movie theaters, Internet and other digital platforms.
