Consultation: Modifications to the RPD in order to adopt the updates of revision 7
Currently, the Canadian GHS is based on revision 5 published in 2013. Health Canada is proposing modifications to the HPR in order to adopt the updates of revision 7 published in 2017. The United States is carrying out the same exercise of updates to their system.
The changes are summarized in the tables below. As an association, we must assess the impact of its changes on our businesses by June 29, 2018.
PLEASE ANSWER the three questions via our SONDAGE EN LIGNE (until June 27)
Question 1: Would the proposed changes to the RPD result in reclassification, re-labeling and / or significant changes to the SDS?
Question 2: What do you think the costs will be for your business?
Question 3: Can you provide data that would help Health Canada quantify the investment and expected impact of this regulatory proposal?
