Tutorial #01: Health Canada Reporting Requirements and What to Expect when you’re Being Inspected
Section 14 of the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) defines the duties of all regulated parties in the event of an incident.  It states that any person who manufactures, imports or sells consumer products in Canada for commercial purposes must make Health Canada aware of health or safety incidents involving their products.  

Incidents reported to Health Canada from industry, consumers, and other partners are a key tool in the early warning and detection of health or safety issues. They ultimately help reduce the number of unsafe consumer products and risks on the Canadian market. These reports also allow for effective collaboration with industry to efficiently respond to consumer product concerns related to health or safety.
Another key tool that the Consumer Product Safety Program uses to support the goal of targeted oversight is planned, targeted inspections. The Program uses a risk-based approach to monitor and verify industry compliance with the regulations for consumer and cosmetic products on a cyclical basis. Sampling and inspecting for compliance is targeted to those regulated product categories and establishments where intelligence indicates elevated levels of non-compliance. The CCPSA clearly defines industry’s obligations and provides government with the tools to take action when necessary

During this tutorial you can hear about these reporting responsibilities, how they compare to those of the US, and learn what to expect when you’re being inspected by Health Canada’s regional inspection staff – your point people for all questions related to the consumer products and cosmetics.
