Consumer Product Labeling

COURSE OVERVIEW  I  Consumer Product Labeling

The US, Canada and EU Consumer Labeling course is designed to provide industry professionals with an overview of the consumer product labeling requirements for products containing hazardous chemical substances. This course will define consumer products and regulations in each region.

For the US, this course will examine statutes administered by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), with a focus on the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA), its amendments, and the Federal Hazardous Substances Act (FHSA). Additional labeling requirements set forth in other statutes under CPSC, such as those in the Labeling of Hazardous Art Materials Act (LHAMA) and Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) will also be examined.

For Canada, the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) will be examined. The detailed labeling requirements of the Consumer Packaging and Labeling Act (CPLA) and the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Regulations (CPLR) will be the focus of discussion.

The day ends with a look at the EU labeling requirements for consumer products under (EC) No 1272/2008 on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures, known commonly as the CLP Regulations.


Where defined in the regulations, labeling requirements will cover size requirements (for all pieces of the label including text and pictograms), labeling statements, net quantities, language requirements, and application.
