==CCCR 2001: Section 46, Subsection 4: Exception — another primary hazard statement==
 +
The primary hazard statement set out in columns 3 and 4 of item 2 of the table to subsection (3) may be omitted when other provisions in these Regulations require another primary hazard statement to be displayed on the container.
 +
 +
 +
==CCCR Reference Manual - Section 46==
 +
Health Canada's CCCR reference manual for section 46 is available at: [http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/pubs/indust/cccr-2001-rpccc/ref_man/sec-46-article_e.html CCCR Reference Manual, Section 46].  One of the important points they note is as follows:
 +
 +
 +
"The required labelling is the minimum necessary, and is an indication of the minimum standard of care imposed on a person responsible. Manufacturers and importers can add, and are encouraged to add, information considered necessary to fully inform the public of the hazards of using their products (see subsection 15(2)). In composing these statements, use short, simple sentences. Complex conditional sentences, particularly those containing negations, should be avoided. In addition, a person will remember the important product related information better, if fewer dimensions or items are listed."
 +
 +
 +
"However, the person responsible is discouraged from deliberately over-stating the hazards posed by a product. If unwarranted warnings are added to products, it may lead to potentially lengthy and unnecessary or inappropriate treatment upon exposure to the product. Furthermore, such a practice minimizes the perception of risk for those products which actually need the warnings, leading to potential injuries from a lack of concern or precaution by the user."
 +
 +
 +
==CCCR Technical Amendments - Section 46==
 +
There are a number of references to section 46 in the [http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/legislation/acts-lois/techni_e.html Proposed Technical Amendments to the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001].  They are as follows:
 +
 +
 +
Some consumer products may generate toxic materials during use or misuse. For example, bleaches containing significant levels of accessible chlorine generate toxic gases when mixed with acids or bases, such as toilet bowl cleaners. The toxic gases are not components of the bleaches, but are the result of a chemical reaction between the bleach and the acid or base. However, not all corrosive products pose a mixing hazard. The consensus recommendation from all stakeholders was that the warnings pertaining to mixing should be present when appropriate to the product.
 +
 +
 +
To clarify this provision, the condition "when appropriate" will be added to the specific hazard statement requirements of section 46.
 +
 +
 +
The portion of subitem 4(c) of the table to subsection 46(1) of the Regulations in columns 3 and 4 is replaced by the following:
 +
 +
 +
Column 3: When appropriate:DANGEROUS FUMES FORM WHEN MIXED WITH OTHER PRODUCTS
 +
 +
 +
Column 4: When appropriate:DÉGAGE DES ÉMANATIONS DANGEREUSES LORSQUE MÉLANGÉ AVEC D'AUTRES PRODUITS
 +
 +
 +
 +
The portion of subitem 4(b) of the table to subsection 46(2) of the Regulations in columns 3 and 4 is replaced by the following:
 +
 +
 +
Column 3: When appropriate:DANGEROUS FUMES FORM WHEN MIXED WITH OTHER PRODUCTS
 +
 +
 +
Column 4: When appropriate:DÉGAGE DES ÉMANATIONS DANGEREUSES LORSQUE MÉLANGÉ AVEC D'AUTRES PRODUITS
  
"Consumer chemical products that contain 0.5% or more of available fluoride ions are prohibited, except for glass etchants that meet the conditions of the table to section 45. Products used for glass etching are not included in the prohibition, since there is no effective substitute for the frosting of glass, a technique used by artists and artisans. Fluoride-containing glass etchants must be in the form of a paste or gel, must be packaged in a child-resistant container and must be labelled according to the table to subsection 46(1). This promotes a controlled application and reduces the possibility of splashing.
 
  
  
The child-resistant packaging requirement is harmonized with the United States' Poison Prevention Packaging Act, where child-resistant packaging is required for household products containing more than 0.5 % and more than 50 mg of elemental fluoride. However, unlike Canada, other household products are not prohibited from containing fluoride ions in the U.S.
+
The portion of subitem 3(c) of the table to subsection 46(3) of the Regulations in columns 3 and 4 is replaced by the following:
  
  
Toothpaste contains around 0.2% fluoride, and the Canadian Dental Association recognizes these products as safe and effective when used as directed. In Canada, consumer chemical products that contain more than 0.5% of available fluoride ion are prohibited, unless they are used for etching glass."
