Brand Approvals

As part of its compliance work, the ICCC approves Brands of products under the Packaging Act and Regulation.

Clients are required to submit:

W

Brand Approval Application

W

Receipt of Payment from the ICCC

W

Copy of Trademark certificate or Trademark lodgment serial number; and

W

Copy of Artwork and Product Information

Once all these requirements are submitted, there is a 2-week turnaround time when the ICCC will issue a Brand Approval Notice. This Brand Approval Notice will then be gazetted by the Minister in the National Gazette as an ‘approved brand’.

While Brand Approval from the ICCC is not mandatory, the ICCC would strongly recommend companies and businesses come forward voluntarily to have their Brands registered with the ICCC.
