Candle labeling Recommendations
Candles are Labeled for Fire Safety. You can’t see the fire-safety designs that reputable candle manufacturers follow when making their candles, but you can see the fire-safety label. Look for the cautionary label and read it carefully before burning a candle. It’s the first step to ensuring your safety.
What you need to know – Every candle should have a cautionary label or tag listing the three key rules for candle fire-safety.Most cautionary labels also include additional manufacturer instructions for burning the candle properly.All NCA members label their candles for fire safety, and test their candles to meet fire-safety manufacturing specifications.Beware of purchasing a candle that doesn’t carry a fire-safety label.Reputable candle manufacturers adhere to industry standards. If a candle doesn’t meet the labeling standard, it probably doesn’t meet other important industry standards for fire-safety design.
What is legally Required to be on a Candle Label?
Legally speaking, Your company name, logo and contact information should always be on your label.
