Exclusion Zones There should be sufficient clear space around the registration logo from the other contents on the product label. The minimum clear space required is based on the distance between the two rings.
Recommended Layout The recommended layout is to position the statement of classification (i.e. “For General Use” or “For Restricted Use”), the registration number and the registration logo in the given order in a centralised fashion.
Min. 3mm Min. space
FOR GENERAL USE SINNEA-P-XXX/ XXX/ XXXX
FOR RESTRICTED USE SINNEA-I-XXX/ XXX/ XXXX
Statement of Classification Registration No. Registration Logo
The above layout is not mandatory. In the event of space limitations, flexibility is allowed in the placement of the required components as long as the statement of classification, both parts of the registration mark (i.e. Registration number and Registration logo) are in conspicuous positions and adhere to the remaining guidelines. Please refer to the Guidebook to the Registration of Public Health Pesticides and Repellents for more examples.
Logo Stickers Registration logos in the form of stickers are allowed during the implementation phase between 1 July 2015 and 1 July 2016. The sticker can be affixed onto any available space within the product label, preferably as close to the registration number as possible. From 1 July 2016 onwards, the sticker option shall phase out and the registration logo should be incorporated into product labels in print.
