CAN Federation makes labels compulsory on imported computers and laptops

Computer Association Nepal (CAN Federation) has made labels compulsory on computers and laptops. The authority has asked its members to only sell computers only after tagging labels on them.

The request comes after the government of Nepal made labelling goods mandatory from Shrawan 01, 2080 BS, the start of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2080/81. The labels helps identify the importer, date of manufacturing, price and other details while also help verify its legal transaction in Nepal.

According to the federation, the importer must label the computers and laptops themselves. The directive states that small packages and cartoons both must have labels.
