HCPA & CCSPA partner for joint webinar

Written on: March 16, 2023 by SprayTM

The Household & Commercial Products Association (HCPA) and the Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association (CCSPA) have partnered to host a joint webinar on April 4 at 1 p.m. covering the Canadian Volatile Organic Compound Concentration Limits for Certain Products Regulations.

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 applies to any company that manufactures, markets, and imports products for sale in Canada.

Similar to the development and implementation of VOC regulations by the U.S. 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.

Companies need time to read and become familiar with the regulations, get informed, and plan for possible reformulations and compliance, according to the HCPA. CCSPA and HCPA are committed to helping you prepare. In this complimentary webinar, industry experts will discuss the regulation, differences between the U.S. and Canadian VOC regulations, the areas in which there remain uncertainties, and tips on how to get ready for compliance and enforcement.

Speakers at the webinar will be Simon Kinsman, Director, Regulatory Affairs, CCSPA; Nicholas Georges, Senior Vice President, Scientific & International Affairs, HCPA; and Doug Raymond, Industry Consultant, Raymond Regulatory Resources (3R), LLC.
