In this regard, the label of the product must contain information related to the product’s function, to the relevant precautions for use and to its ingredients. This information shall not be listed in a separate catalogue. Furthermore, this information must be easily accessible to the end-user, by being translated according to the language requirements of the EU Member State in which the product is marketed. Even if this may be an organizational and/or financial burden for the producers or distributors, they cannot prevail on this aspect in order not to fulfill their obligations.
