View source for CCCR 2001 Canadian Consumer Chemical Label Compliance
In Canada, the law governing the labeling of consumer chemical products is the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001. Health Canada's [http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pubs/indust/hpa-pcc/guide-evaluation_e.html Guide to Canadian Consumer Chemical Product Assessment] contains a great deal of information on the legislation. Here are a few key items: "If a consumer can buy a chemical product in Canada through the retail distribution network, then that product must meet the requirements of the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001, issued under the Hazardous Products Act." "The following types of products are not subject to the Hazardous Products Act or its associated Regulations, since they are governed by other Canadian legislation:" * cosmetics * drugs * explosives * food * medical devices * nuclear substances * pest control products * tobacco products "Chemicals used exclusively in the workplace are excluded from the CCCR-2001. Workplace chemicals are governed by the requirements of the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), established under the Hazardous Products Act and associated Controlled Products Regulations. Chemical products used by consumers and regulated under the CCCR-2001 are exempt from WHMIS labelling requirements under paragraph 12(f) of the Act. But the converse is not true. All chemical products available to the general public must meet the CCCR-2001 requirements." "The warnings required by these Regulations must be displayed in both official languages, that is, in English and French." ==Nexreg Compliance Links== *[http://www.nexreg.com/en/faq/labels/canadian_label_reviews.php Canadian Label Review FAQ] *[http://www.nexreg.com/en/label_reviews/cccr_consumer_label_review.php Canadian CCCR Label Review] *[http://www.nexreg.com/es/label_reviews/cccr_consumer_label_review.php Revisión de Etiqueta para el Consumidor Canadiense] *[http://www.nexreg.com/fr/label_reviews/cccr_consumer_label_review.php Révision canadienne d’étiquettes du consommateur] *[http://www.nexreg.com/ko/label_reviews/cccr_consumer_label_review.php 캐나다 소비자 라벨 검토] *[http://www.nexreg.com/ja/label_reviews/cccr_consumer_label_review.php カナダ 消費者向けラベルの検査] *[http://www.nexreg.com/ja/label_reviews/cccr_consumer_label_review.php 加拿大消费标签检验] ==Canadian Goverment Links== *[http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/legislation/acts-lois/consumerchemicals_e.html Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001] *[http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pubs/indust/hpa-pcc/guide-evaluation_e.html Guide to Canadian Consumer Chemical Product Assessment] [[Category:Consumer Label Compliance|Canada]] [[Category:Canadian Regulations|Consumer Chemical Labels]]
