There are no specific labeling requirements for goods.  Well-labeled goods benefit from quicker identification and customs clearance.  However, Beninese law does not allow any foreign natural or manufactured goods to enter or leave Benin if the goods are falsely labeled to reflect that they are from Benin or a country with which Benin has signed a brand protection agreement.  No goods without attestation of the country of origin and/or not marked as “imported” are allowed to enter Benin.
