Congratulation Nantong Rhino homeware obtain the LAW Label

WHAT IS A LAW LABEL?

The purpose of a law label (sometimes called a Do Not Remove label) is to inform consumers of the hidden contents, or filling materials, inside bedding, furniture and other products.

The law label was born in the early 1900s to prevent these articles from being filled with things such as horse hair, corn husks and other materialsthe consumer would never see.  Its similar to food labeling.

Law Labels must describe the filling materials of the article as a percentage of those filling materials by weight.  Example: 80% Polyurethane Foam, 20% Polyester Fibers.

Currently 31 states, and Canada, require law labels.  The products requiring law labels in each state varies, as does the labeling requirements.  Uniform law labels can be produced to satisfy the different requirements of all states.

Law Labels in most states require the display a Uniform Registry Number (URN).  The URN identifies the manufacturing facility which produced the product.  This can be any factory in the world whose products are sold in the U.S.

Law Labels are governed on a state-by-state basis by various departments.  Examples of these departments are:

· Department of Health, Weights & Measures

· Bureau of Home Furnishings

· Dept. of Agriculture

· Division of Industrial Compliance.

WHAT IS A UNIFORM REGISTRY NUMBER (URN)?

When a manufacturer registers in a state, it is issued a Uniform Registry Number (URN).  This URN  can then be registered in the other states requiring registration.  So, only one URN is needed per factory.

This URN identifies the manufacturer of the products and must be printed on the law labels attached to the products.  Only a manufacturer can be issued a URN.  A single manufacturing company with multiple plants must have a different URN for each plant location.

U.S. companies who import and/or distribute foreign products must ensure the foreign manufacturer has proper registration where required in the U.S.

Be certain the URN on your products, whether you manufacture them or import them, is registered and active in the state(s) where the products will be sold to avoid fines and/or product being removed from shelves.

URN Registration Process

Each state has their unique URN registration process, forms, renewal period, fees, etc.  This can all be very complicated and time consuming.  The penalties and consequences (like fines, having product pulled from shelves or returned by the retailer) can be severe.

It can easily be a full-time job to keep up with the ever changing URN regulations in all the states.  Many manufacturers and importers ensure they are in compliance with all states by subcontracting the URN license set-up and renewals with a company likeGlobal Registration Services, our sister company.
