There are a number of references to section 39 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:
 +
 
 +
 
 +
3. Fuel Containers
 +
 
 +
The exception for labelling on permanently attached fuel containers is not consistent. At present, the exception applies to fuels classified as '''toxic''', '''harmful''' and '''very flammable''', such as gasoline. However, fuels that are classified as '''flammable''' or '''combustible''', such as propane, ethanol or kerosene, would need to be labelled.
 +
 
 +
The amendment would exempt permanently attached fuel tanks from all CCCR-2001 requirements. This exception would be included in subsection 2(2). Subsequent deletions would occur in sections 39 and 53.
 +
 
 +
Subsection 39(1) of the Regulations is replaced by the following:
 +
 
 +
Required information -- sub-category '''toxic'''
 +
 
 +
39. (1) The container of a chemical product that is classified in the sub-category '''toxic''' under section 33 must display, for each type of information set out in column 1 of the table to this subsection, and for each applicable route of exposure set out in column 2, the information set out in columns 3 and 4, other than the instructions set out in italics.
 +
 
 +
Subsection 39(2) of the Regulations is replaced by the following:
 +
 
 +
Required information -- sub-category '''harmful'''
 +
 
 +
(2) The container of a chemical product that is classified in the sub-category '''harmful''' under section 33 must display, for each type of information set out in column 1 of the table to this subsection, and for each applicable route of exposure set out in column 2, the information set out in columns 3 and 4, other than the instructions set out in italics.
 +
 
 +
Subsection 39(3) is repealed.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
6. Toxic Product Labelling
 +
 
 +
The example provided in the instructions for administering first aid is no longer appropriate, in light of current treatment practices. Traditionally, vomiting was recommended in the treatment of methyl alcohol poisoning. However, current practice does not recommend inducing vomiting because methanol is absorbed so rapidly that there would be little opportunity to prevent absorption, and inducing vomiting may introduce the risk of aspirating the gastric contents.
 +
 
 +
Clearer wording for administering first aid will be given in section 39. As this instruction was an example and not a mandatory statement, correction of the instruction is a minor amendment.
 +
 
 +
Proposed Text:
 +
 
 +
The portion of subitem 7(b) of the table to subsection 39(1) of the Regulations in columns 3 and 4 is replaced by the following:
 +
 
 +
Column 3: When appropriate, insert instructions for administering first aid, e.g., Do not induce vomiting.
 +
 
 +
Column 4: When appropriate, insert instructions for administering first aid, e.g., Ne pas faire vomir.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
The portion of subitem 7(b) of the table to subsection 39(2) of the Regulations in columns 3 and 4 is replaced by the following:
 +
 
 +
Column 3: When appropriate, insert instructions for administering first aid, e.g., Do not induce vomiting.
 +
 
 +
Column 4: When appropriate, insert instructions for administering first aid, e.g., Ne pas faire vomir.
