The Sub-Committee noted that the legislative amendments to implement the GHS in the workplace had received royal assent on 19 June 2014 and would come into force once the regulatory amendments are completed. It was also noted that the proposed regulations will substantially harmonize Canadian classification and hazard communication for workplace chemicals with those of the United States of America and other countries which had already implemented the GHS.
It is expected that the amended legislation and regulations will come into force on or before 1 June 2015 with a transitional period for implementation.
