Japan has specific labeling requirements for products -- including fresh produce commodities -- that have been treated with post-harvest fungicides.  Japanese regulations require the name of the post-harvest fungicide to be identified at the point of sale (These regulations only apply to post-harvest treatment and not when a fungicide is applied prior to harvest).  Reports have indicated that these requirements have had a negative impact on U.S. fresh produce sales in Japan.
