Obama administration reissues labeling order on West Bank products

WASHINGTON – The US customs agency reiterated its policy that goods from the West Bank must be labeled as such.

The move signals the Obama administration’s continued resistance to folding recognition of settlement products into goods made within Israel’s pre-1967 borders.

The Jan. 23 statement by the US Customs and Border Protection says the reiteration “is to provide guidance to the trade community regarding the country of origin marking requirements for goods that are manufactured in the West Bank.”
