- Government regulations:
Each and every marketers must consider the local government regulations regarding the labeling while using labels. Because different countries may have different regulations in this regard, such as in Canada, bilingual,French and Englishlabeling is a legal requirement and the local government can confiscate products that are not labeled correctly.
