CCSPA Success Stories

CCSPA Success Stories

 For 2016, CCSPA was successful on a number of files for members. Highlights include:

  • Obtained a transition time to meet the needs of members for GHS and advocated for guidance, which was published 17 months ahead of schedule
  • Retained the Reference Listing on the Government website for those members who have pre-existing Letters of No-Objection
  • 100% of members are in compliance with our voluntary Consumer Ingredient Communication Initiative (CICI)
  • No stigmatization from OAG Environment Commission Reports on our members’ products
  • No inclusion of our products in the microbeads regulation
  • Announcement of a separate framework for disinfectants/sanitizers by Government
  • Amended Government legislation at the Parliamentary Committee stage so that domestic business for pest control products was maintained
  • Reduced workload for data collection, designed a sector approach for our members, plus provided collective and accurate information for CMP3 substances

For more information on HOW we accomplished this – and how you can work with us to achieve results that impact your bottom line – please contact Shannon Coombs, President.

“Recochem has been an active member of CCSPA since 1958. Both our company and the Association have changed names in that time, but what has not changed is our reliance on each other to help the industry navigate the ever changing maze of regulations and legislation. I cannot imagine anyone doing business in Canada in the consumer specialty products chemical sector being successful and legally compliant without being a member of this Association.”

“CCSPA’s groundbreaking leadership in moving forward with industry’s voluntary ingredient communication initiative shows commitment not only to their members but also to Canadian consumers. For the last 8 years, we continue to have 100% compliance by our impacted members – which is a testament to the effectiveness of the program.”
