From the Bureau Veritas Group:
The Canadian Hazardous Products Act (CHPA) has been amended to add bisphenol A (4,4’- isopropylidenediphenol) to the list of prohibited chemicals in Schedule I of the Act. The scope of this amendment is limited to the prohibition of bisphenol A in polycarbonate baby bottles. Enforcement of this prohibition will follow the standardized practice outlined within the CHPA. This ban marks Canada as the first country to officially ban bisphenol A in specific types of children’s products. This amendment is effective as of March 31, 2010.
The amendments to the HPA are available here: Order Amending Schedule I to the Hazardous Products Act (bisphenol A)
