Canada | Regulations Amending the Hazardous Products Regulations
Under the Canada – United States Regulatory Cooperation Council Joint Forward Plan, Canada has an international commitment to align the Hazardous Products Regulations with the seventh revised edition of the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). Adopting the seventh revised edition of the GHS would provide increased worker health and safety benefits and worker protections. There are also several issues that have been identified by Health Canada and stakeholders since the Hazardous Products Regulations came into force in February 2015. Health Canada is therefore proposing to amend the Hazardous Products Regulations to align with the seventh revised edition of the GHS, provide greater clarity or additional precision regarding certain specific provisions, amend specific provisions to better reflect their original intent, and address administrative updates.
