Q. Which MSDS formats are acceptable in Canada?

A. As reflected in Schedule I to the CPR, Canada had adopted a 9 heading system. However, as an administrative policy, Canada accepts MSDSs for controlled products which adhere to the International Labour Organization (ILO) 16-heading format provided that all 16 headings are disclosed (in the sequence specified) and that the information required by the CPR is addressed. The ILO headings have been adopted by such bodies as ANSI, ISO and the EC. When using the 16-heading format, the following statement should appear under the heading "Regulatory Information": "This product has been classified in accordance with the hazard criteria of the Controlled Products Regulations and the MSDS contains all of the information required by the Controlled Products Regulations."
