Generally consumer size containers weigh 5 kg or less. However, volume retail packages are acceptable provided that:

  1. they have all mandatory information printed on the principal display panel, except that the product description and ingredient list, if applicable, may be stencilled, stamped or applied by means of a pressure-sensitive label; and
  2. the unmarked inner packages are not intended for individual sale to consumers.
