The Canada Environmental Protection Act (CEPA, 1999) regulates toxic substances under the Prohibition of Certain Toxic Substances Regulations. This oversight is for safeguarding the environment and human health. These regulations prohibit the manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale, or import of certain toxic substances.

The CEPA has outlined a list of such toxic substances and regularly modifies it when required. If you wish to ensure that your formulations comply with the CEPA requirements, please reach out to us. This is essential to ensure that all ingredients in formulations are permissible for sale in Canada and that, for certain ingredients, the necessary notifications have been filed to allow activities such as manufacture, import and sale in Canada.
