Chile: Update on Chilean Advertising of Packaged Foods and Beverages

On December 11, 2017, Chilean Ministry of Health (MOH) published in the Official Gazette, Decree Nº1, which outlines the implementing regulation for labeling and advertising of packaged foods and beverages that carry one or more black octagonal stop sign labels. Chile notified the proposed implementing regulation to the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade Committee (WTO/TBT) on November 15, 2016. It is important to note that the current Chilean government is neither revising Law 20.606 of 2012, nor is it revising its implementing regulations, namely Decree Nº1 of 2017 or Decree Nº13 of 2015.
