Microbeads in Toiletries RegulationsMonday, November 07, 2016 > 17:13:07
The Government of Canada wishes to inform you of the publication of the proposed Microbeads in Toiletries Regulations pursuant to subsection 93(1) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. The proposed Regulations would phase in prohibitions for the manufacture, import, sale or offer for sale of toiletries that contain plastic microbeads including non-prescription drugs and natural health products. On February 9, 2016, ECCC published a consultation document for a 30-day public comment on the proposed Regulations for Microbeads in Personal Care Products Used to Exfoliate or Cleanse. The title subsequently changed. Public comments were solicited and considered in the development of the proposed regulations. Stakeholders will have until January 19, 2017 to submit written comments on the proposed Regulations. The proposed regulations can be found in the Canada Gazette at: http://www.ec.gc.ca/lcpe-cepa/eng/regulations/detailReg.cfm?intReg=238
