CCCR Compliance: What don’t you know BUT should know!

 In Product Safety

By: Kirsten Alcock, Manager of Product Safety, email

Did you know that Health Canada has the right to recall your product? Your company may not be within Canada but if you sell here, they have the ability and right to remove it from the shelf or stop shipment AT THE BORDER!

This can be a very expensive, time-consuming occurrence for your company. Not only are you dealing with empty shelf space and the potential for your suppliers to sue you due to this fact, but the amount of money required to re-label your product is $$$. In addition to this, there’s the reputation of your company. In this day and age, recall notices are something that are shared on multiple platforms from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media to the Health Canada website. Do you want your company name listed here? Chances are your answer is NO.

CCCR, 2001 under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) protects Canadians from hazards posed by chemical consumer products sold in stores or online in Canada by regulating the disclosure of all hazards on consumer product labels. The regulations stipulate labeling and packaging requirements for chemical products aimed at informing the consumer of potential hazards posed during use. Canadian consumers will find information on toxicity, flammability, corrosivity, and quick skin-bonding adhesives and if they apply to the products that they are using.
