Canada – Plans to Develop a Labelling Strategy for Certain Toxic Substances in Products

Tiempo estimado de lectura: 32 segundos

Government of Canada intends to propose actions under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (Cepa) to require the labelling of certain substances that are listed on the List of Toxic Substances of the Act (Schedule 1) in certain products, such as cosmetics, cleaning products and flame retardants in upholstered furniture. ​ The proposed actions under this notice of intent will leverage best practices from existing measures, and will take into consideration other existing regulatory regimes related to consumer product labelling, such as the Canadian Consumer Product Safety Act. ​ The Government intends to publish and consult on a product labelling strategy in 2023. This strategy will identify specific measures, including regulatory measures, informed by stakeholder input received from this notice of intent and other sources such as the national consultations on supply chain transparency and labelling. Public input on the strategy will inform any measures that the Government proposes. Such proposals will include a public consultation period to inform the publication of any final measure. ​Comments on this notice of intent can be provided until January 12, 2023.
