''The table to subsection 34(1) contains a list of substances which pose specific hazards to human health, thus requiring special classification. At present, the table to subsection 34(1) does not contain any information pertaining to the 'route of exposure' through which these substances pose a hazard. This will be addressed by adding a new column, "Column 4", to this table called "Route of exposure", which will permit manufacturers/importers to properly label their products for the dangers inherent to these chemical ingredients.''
