"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."

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.
