27 August 2010 Proposed Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) Penalties Note that the proposed Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations under the proposed Canada Consumer Product Safety Act differs from CBSA's Administrative Monetary Penalty System. The proposed Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) is proposed legislation that would replace Part I of the Hazardous Products Act (HPA). Some of the new tools under the proposed CCPSA are: - modernized inspection powers; - authority to order measures be taken to correct non-compliance with the proposed Act or regulations; - authority to order recalls; and - an AMPs System, to provide a more timely enforcement action. Health Canada is now conducting a consultation on options for the proposed Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations and are requesting input on the following areas: - How an AMP (monetary penalty) would be calculated, including the factors that would be used to calculate the penalty and their associated values; - Options for the Payment of Penalty, including the payment process; and, - Any other details not laid out in the Clauses 49 - 66 of the proposed CCPSA. Information about the proposed CCPSA (Bill C-36) is available here: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/legislation/acts-lois/ccpsa-lcspc/index-eng.php and information on the proposed AMPS under the CCPSA is here: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/legislation/consultation/2010ampr-rsap/consult-eng.php Members may send comments on either proposal to the CSCB at cscb@cscb.ca
