Your substances


The Canadian government is considering proposed regulations (Volatile Organic Compound Concentration Limits for Certain Products Regulations) that would impose the first national volatile organic compound (“VOC”) limits aimed at consumer products, such as personal care products, automotive and household maintenance products, and adhesives, among others. If finalized, the regulations would impose VOC concentration limits on approximately 130 product categories, prohibiting the manufacture and import of these products in excess of their respective category-specific VOC limits. Manufacturers and importers will have up to two years from the date of enactment before the vast majority of the regulations come into force.
