Order Amending Schedule 2 to the Hazardous Products Act in Canada
By: Kirsten Alcock, Manager of Product Safety, email
The Order amending Schedule 2 to the Hazardous Products Act was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I on December 19, 2020.
There are two proposed changes to Schedule 2. The one that impacts most of my clients involves Aerosol Products. Item 3, Flammable aerosols.
The current Schedule 2 of the Hazardous Products Act (HPA) shows the following chart for Physical Hazard Classes.
The proposed amendment is to change Flammable aerosols to Aerosols. There will also be changes to Item 19, Pyrophoric gases. Item 19 is repealed. This is not a common classification for our clients but the change in aerosols will impact many Canadian companies and those who choose to sell their aerosols to Canada.
Stakeholders may make representations concerning the proposed Regulations and Order, within 70 days after their date of publication in the Canada Gazette, Part 1. all submissions must cite the Canada Gazette, Part I, the date of publication (December 19, 2020), and be addressed to:
