Jeremy Long, knoell USA, recently presented, “The Role of Consumer Safety Regulations in North America” at Chemical Watch’s Safer Chemicals in Products 2018 event.
The United States, Canada, and Mexico all require precautionary information printed on labels of consumer products that have the potential to cause injury or illness during intended or unintended use. However, because consumer product laws in North America are not aligned with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling (GHS), each country has different regulations and requirements for the labeling of these hazardous products. This presentation explains the different requirements and criteria for hazard determination for consumer product labels in United States, Canada, and Mexico.
