Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) Goes Live

On June 20, 2011, the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) came into force requiring industry to provide information to the Minister of Health regarding the occurrence of an incident that resulted or could reasonably be expected to have resulted in death or serious adverse health effects. Such incidents are also not limited to just Canada if a Canadian product is also sold in another country like the United States. If and when adverse events are reported by consumers, retailers and manufacturers are held responsible to provide follow up and depending on the severity of the case to report the adverse event to Health Canada.
