The Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is inviting comments on the Proposed Regulations Amending the Concentration of Phosphorus in Certain Cleaning Products Regulations which was published on Canada Gazette on March 31st, 2018.

This proposed amendment requires that the concentration of phosphorus in any household cleaner must not exceed 1.1% by weight expressed as phosphorus pentoxide or 0.5% by weight expressed as elemental phosphorus.

The proposed amendments also exempt cleaning products in transit through Canada from the Regulation, clarify that the concentration limit for phosphorus in household cleaning products does not apply to products marketed exclusively as a household metal cleaner or de-greasing compound; and revise the provisions related to laboratory accreditation to be consistent with other regulations of the Department.

Public comment is invited up until June 14th, 2018.
