Spanish term or phrase: MBE ESTA
SPAIN. Whereas virtually all of this delivery condition is perfectly understandable and translatable, I have absolutely no idea what this last part means, or whether there should be an accent on "ESTA"...


"SI EL ELEMENTO O PRODUCTO QUE SOLICITAMOS EN EL PRESENTE PEDIDO, ESTA ESPECIFICADO COMO SUSTANCIA PELIGROSA, DEBERA SER INDEFECTIBLEMENTE ETIQUETADO E IDENTIFICADO SEGUN LO ESPECIFICADO EN EL REAL DECRETO 363/1995 DE 10 DE MARZO, SIN CUYO REQUISITO NO SERA ADMITIDO EN NUESTRA FABRICA. MBE ESTA."

BUT: If it all comes in capital letters, I doubt if it is an abbreviation. Just look 'ESTA' in the very first sentence, which has NO accent at all! :-)
