Webinar on CCPSA by Canadian Apparel Federation
Jun '11
Canadian Apparel Federation will organize the webinar on Canada Consumer Product Safety Act - Tuesday July 5, 2011 and will be presented by Teresa Dufort, McMillan.

Information on new regulatory requirements for apparel and other consumer products.

In December 2010, the Canadian Government passed its long-promised Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA).

The Law came into force on June 20, 2011.

Find out about new requirements for companies in the consumer product supply chain including new record-keeping provisions, and mandatory reporting of health and safety “incidents”.

Be prepared for new requirements in the domestic market.

This session will give participants an understanding of the framework of the legislation and explain how it compares to previous product safety legislation, and identify key regulations that are being developed to implement the CCPSA. Topics include:

• What constitutes an “incident”?
• What triggers an obligation to report?
• What will be done with the information I report?
• Mandatory recalls, and other new powers under the CCPSA
• How will penalties be levied?
• What are the specific requirements that apply to retailers

CAF will be holding additional sessions in the coming months concerning the CCPSA – subsequent sessions will focus on product-specific topics related to apparel. This session explains general provisions of the legislation, and updates our earlier webinar (March 31, 2011) on the same subject.

The Canadian Apparel Federation works to ensure that the industry's interests are taken into account. We lobby on issues such as internationals trade, tariffs, competition policy and product safety plus a wide range of other issues.
