Health Canada proposed on December 3, 2016 the new Consumer Products Containing Lead Regulations under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) by expanding the scope of products covered by the current Consumer Products Containing Lead (Contact with Mouth) Regulations to consumer products that are intended for use by children under 14 years of age. According to the proposed new regulations, requirements on consumer product containing lead shall remain unchanged, such that each accessible part of any of the covered consumer products must not contain more than 90 mg/kg of lead.
