(AGENPARL) – WASHINGTON (DC), mer 25 novembre 2020
In October 2020, South Africa published a notice repealing the regulations relating to health messages on container labels of alcoholic beverages (No. 1143). The repeal of this regulation was expected given the wide criticism and overwhelming comments from the domestic industry and international stakeholders including the United States. This repeal provides relief to the domestic industry and international trading partners, including U.S. exports of liquor products amounting to US$17.4 million in 2019. However, Post expects that updated regulations will be proposed again in future, given the South African government mandate to address alcohol abuse and measures to reduce the dangers associated with the consumption of alcohol in South Africa.
