Canada notified a regulation related to carriages and strollers
The requirements of the Carriages and Strollers Regulations (Regulations) have not changed substantively since they were introduced in 1985, while carriage and stroller design has evolved considerably. Current designs of carriages and strollers may present hazards that are not addressed by the Regulations. In addition, some terminology could be clarified and updated to keep pace with current designs. Health Canada has also identified requirements that are not aligned with the requirements in other jurisdictions, and the limited time provided to transition from one standard or regulation to a new version, to be issues warranting amendment.
This regulatory proposal covers five types of requirements related to carriages and strollers:
- Surface coating materials
- Information and warnings
