"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."
