Health Canada is currently conducting a consultation on its proposed policy for mandatory reporting requirements under the proposed Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA).

The proposed CCPSA would replace Part I of the Hazardous Products Act and introduce a new regulatory regime for consumer products. One of the shortcomings identified in the Hazardous Products Act is the absence of any requirement for suppliers to report incidents and defects related to health and safety.

Specifically, the consultation document covers:

1. general interpretation for reporting incidents;
2. specific interpretations for incidents under 14(1)(a) through (d); and
3. reporting – who, what, when, how, including draft incident report form for reporting online.
