Module 1: Label Basics

Section 5: What are the types of labels and labeling?

Key Points

  • The four types of labels and labeling are: master label, sub-label or split-label, supplemental distributor labeling, and supplemental labeling.
  • A master label contains claims and directions for all of the approved uses for a given product.
  • A sub-label or split-label contains claims and directions for only a portion of the approved uses under a given master label.
  • Supplemental distributor labeling includes labels for a product that is registered to one company, but distributed by another company.
  • Supplemental labeling includes labels that contain newly approved uses, use directions, or other instructions that have been added since the last accepted master label.
