The establishment's registration number, shown within an eight sided frame as illustrated in Schedule V of the DPR, is required on the principal display surface of all domestic dairy products packed in bulk [20.(1)(d) & 71.(2)(b), DPR].

In cases where the identity and principal place of business shown on the label is not the actual establishment product was prepared, prepackaged dairy products for the consumer are required to declare the registration number of the establishment where the product was prepared, on any surface of the label. The registration number must be shown within the eight sided frame in the proportions illustrated in Schedule V of the DPR, or preceded by the words "Registration Number" or the abbreviation "Reg. No." or "Reg." [19.(3)(a), DPR].
