(Aug 30, 2010) On July 21, 2010, the Knesset (Israel's parliament) passed an amendment to the Pharmacists Ordinance (New Version), 5741-1981, thereby extending the requirement of labeling, previously applicable to prescription medications, to over-the-counter pharmaceuticals. According to the amendment, such medications must include the following information:

in Hebrew, Arabic, English and Russian: the name of the pharmaceutical, an instruction to review the consumer information package prior to use, and the active ingredient(s);

in Hebrew only: the objective of the pharmaceutical's use, warning labels, and any other information required by the Ministry of Health.

The law entered into force on August 1, 2010. (Pharmacists Ordinance (Amendment No. 17) Law, 5770-2010, (last visited Aug. 19, 2010).)
