PRETORIA - The South African Trade Ministry has published a second notice concerning the labeling of Israeli products.

Contrary to the more restricted proposal issued in May, the notice published Oct. 12 in the Government Gazette refers to all products originating from the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and eastern Jerusalem as ‘'requiring an importer, producer, retailer or supplier of the Republic of South Africa to label goods that originate from the Israeli Occupied Territory (hereinafter referred to as "IOT") namely: East Jerusalem, Gaza and the West Bank, as goods originating from IOT. Goods originating from IOT must not be labeled as goods originating from Israel.’’

"The label 'Made in Israel' may only be applied to goods that originate from within Israel’s borders of 1948-1967 before they were unilaterally changed by Israel in 1967 Six Day War," the notice reads.
