  3. Delabeling and Defacing Procedures

    Buyers must adhere to the following delabeling and defacing procedures, as applicable. When drawing lines through brand identifiers and scannable codes, these lines must be made with a permanent black marker.

    Packaged Goods

    Boxed Merchandise

    Remove product from original packaging when packaging is not required to keep product intact.

    If removing product is not practical:

    • Remove or draw lines through all brand identifiers;
    • Remove or draw vertical lines through all scannable codes; and
    • Remove and discard all warranty cards and registration information

    Merchandise in in clear packaging (e.g. Plastic Bags, Clam Shells):

    Remove or draw lines through all brand identifiers displayed on inserts;

    Remove or draw vertical lines through all scannable codes.

    Apparel

    Remove all hang tags;

    Remove all or draw lines through sewn-in labels;

    Draw lines through brand labels in a manner that will not damage or make the merchandise unsaleable; and

    Remove heat stamps completely wherever possible (Heat stamp labels may be double stamped to make the label illegible).

    Shoes

    Remove all original shoe boxes;

    Draw lines through brand logos; and

    Remove all hang tags.

    Jewelry and Accessories

    Remove all hang tags;

    If hang tags cannot be removed, hang tags must be defaced by drawing lines through all brand identifiers and vertical lines through all scannable codes.
