EU Finalizes Welcome Change to Metric-Only Directive

Through a notice published in the Official Journal on May 7, the European Union has now completed the formalities for amending the directive that would have required metric-only labeling for all products sold in the EU effective January 1, 2010.  As a result, dual labeling (e.g., kilograms and ounces) will be allowed to continue indefinitely, thereby reducing the likelihood of SGMA members being required to prepare separate product labels tailored to European markets.
