The European Union’s top court ruled on Tuesday that products made in Israeli settlements must be clearly labelled as produced in the Occupied Territories when sold in EU countries. 

In its ruling, the Luxembourg-based European Court of Justice (ECJ) said goods from territories occupied by Israel “must bear the indication of their territory of origin”, and that where goods come from an Israeli settlement within that territory, this should also be indicated. Labels, the court said, must not imply that goods produced in the Occupied Territories come from Israel itself.
