Food Standards Australia and New Zealand have now released a 5th version of the mandatory Pregnancy Warning Mark. This is a 1-colour version that can be used on the outer packaging of prescribed alcoholic beverage that includes more than one individual unit in the package that is:

  • made of corrugated cardboard and has an outside liner made of kraft, recycled or white paper
  • printed on using a post-print (flexographic) printing process.​​​​​


Although the Type 5 label must be printed slightly larger than the other versions, it can be printed in black only, which eliminates the need to print all jobs using the 2 colours that are required on the other versions of the mark.
