On 1 January 2024, the Canadian Volatile Organic Compound Concentration Limits for Certain Products Regulations come into force.
The regulations, published as final in January 2022, establish concentration limits for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for many household, personal care, commercial, institutional, and industrial products, and apply to any company that manufactures, markets and imports products for sale in Canada, stated the Household and Commercial Products Association (HCPA).
It added that, similar to the development and implementation of VOC regulations by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and many states, Canada’s regulation is based on the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Consumer Product Regulations. However, Canada’s regulation has differences in the foundation of the regulation, and it will be important for companies to understand how that applies to their products.
Consequently the HCPA and the Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association (CCSPA) are hosting a complimentary webinar on 4 April. Industry experts will discuss the regulation, differences between the US and Canadian VOC regulations, the areas in which uncertainties remain and tips on how to get ready for compliance and enforcement.
