Published May 6, 2016

Packaging and Labeling

Mexico's Green Party has proposed a bill in the Chamber of Deputies that would establish the Law for Ecological and Sustainable Products, intended to combat the practice of "greenwashing," or the misleading or false representation of environmental benefits in product marketing. The Bill would apply to all entities that produce, sell, or certify products manufactured according to ecological and/or sustainable production standards. (Art. 2) If approved, the Bill could have significant impacts on the advertising and marketing of products sold Mexico, including electronics. Implementing regulations and other complementary provisions would be developed within one year of the Bill's enactment. (Second Transitory Art.)
