Are the consumer  products you manufacture, import, advertise or sell in Canada subject to the requirements under the Consumer Products Containing Lead Regulations?

The Regulations were amended in 2018 to expand their scope to include:

  • products intended for use in learning or play (toys) by children under 14 years of age;
  • clothing or clothing accessories intended for use by a child under 14 years of age; and
  • products whose primary purpose is to facilitate the relaxation, sleep, hygiene, carrying or transportation of a child under 4 years of age.

Health Canada has published Information for Regulated Parties Regarding the Consumer Products Containing Lead Regulations to provide more details on:

  • examples of products in scope of the Regulations,
  • exceptions, and
  • test methods.
