Canada's Microbead Ban

Posted Date: 
Friday, June 16, 2017

 

The Government of Canada has adopted a regulation that will ban the import, manufacture and sale of products for personal care containing plastic microbeads.

Following in the footsteps of the United States’ Microbead Waters Act, Canada will ban microbeads January 1 2018, that are equal to or below 5mm. Sale of cosmetic products containing microbeads will come into place six months later, on July 1 2016.

Canada’s NGO Environmental Defence programme manager has applauded the government’s action to ban microbeads, as it will stop millions of particles from entering the countries waterways.

Testimonial

I am very satisfied with the work provided by Nexreg. The work has been through, timely and reasonable. Additionally, both Mike Harvey and Nazifa Beganovic are very knowledgeable. Mike and Nazifa's efforts have been an essential part of getting our MSDS program on track and positioned for the Global Harmonized System.
