Labelling jewelry products in Spain
The labelling of jewelry products sold in Spain has to be concluded in accordance with the European Union’s requirements, which can be detailed by our team of agents.
Some of the aspects that should be available for a customer in Spain who buys jewelry products are the following:
- the type of product;
- the product’s net and gross weight;
- the name of the manufacturer or supplier;
- the product’s serial number;
- environmental logos (if applicable).
Packaging requirements in Spain
Companies in Spain operating in the wholesale sector have to meet a set of criteria when packaging jewelry products. In this case, it is necessary to provide such products in plastic bags or cardboard boxes. In the case of a business operating in the retail sector, such products are individually packaged in various types of packages, made out of cardboard, textiles or organza bags, but this is generally available for more expensive products.
The manufacturer of jewelry products does not have to supply packaging for products sold by unit.
It is necessary to know that packaging also needs to meet specific requirements, as prescribed by the European legislation.
As a general rule, a jewelry product should meet safety requirements and, in this sense, it is important to know that the usage of certain chemicals can be restricted, as they can be harmful to the user.
