CANADA REDUCES LEAD LIMITS FOR SURFACE COATING MATERIALS IN CERTAIN PRODUCTS The Canadian Government recently set more stringent lead content limits for surface coating materials and surface coating materials in certain consumer products. The following are the stationary sources of air pollution for the solvent use and surface coating industries, and their corresponding air pollution regulations. Surface Coating Materials Regulations. The lead and mercury levels in the Regulations are the accepted background levels or Total Lead And Mercury In Surface Coatings [Canada Toys Regulations (SOR/2011-17) With SOR/2016-195 & SOR/2016-302 & SOR/2018-138 Amendment, Toxicological Hazards, Section 23 And SOR/2016-193 Surface Coating Materials Regulations] PASS Total Lead Content [Canada Consumer Products Containing Lead Regulations (SOR/2018-83)] PASS architectural coating 1.1. architectural coating means a product to be applied onto or impregnated into a substrate, for use on traffic surfaces such as streets and highways, curbs, berms, driveways, parking lots, sidewalks and airport runways, or stationary structures, including temporary buildings and their appurtenances, whether installed or detached. Relevant Acts and regulations in Canada for the paint and coatings industry are noted below. 0 The Regulations further restrict the maximum allowable lead level and set a restriction on the maximum allowable mercury level of paints and other surface coating materials. materials. CANADA CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY ACT. (contenant), display panel means any part of a container on which the common or generic name of a surface coating material, or the description of its function, is displayed. The low adhesion strength between ice and a solid surface defines the “icephobicity” of a coating material. At the outset of the Regulations the following terms are defined: "container", "display panel", "good laboratory practices", "surface coating material". %PDF-1.5 %���� The Surface Coating Materials Regulations under the CCPSA limit the concentration of total mercury present in a surface coating material to no more than 10 mg/kg. SOR/2016-193 June 22, 2016 Canada Consumer Product Safety Act Surface Coating Materials Regulations. The purpose of this document is to inform stakeholders and the Canadian public of the regulatory activities that were taken to ensure that all existing prohibitions and regulations related to consumer products, previously under the Hazardous Products Act (HPA), continued under the new Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). Applicable Products This proposed code is applicable to consumer products that are surface coating materials containing DEGME.
