McCarthy Tétrault’s Health Canada CCPSA Audit Toolkit


October 18, 2017

Is your company ready for an audit under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act? McCarthy Tétrault’s new Health Canada Audit Toolkit is available now, and is designed to help clients respond to audits as well as enhance compliance with the CCPSA before Health Canada comes knocking.

Manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers are subject to strict obligations under the CCPSA. Health Canada has sweeping powers to audit your company’s compliance, including the duty to promptly report “incidents” and maintain certain records. The CCPSA contains significant sanctions for non-compliance.

The Toolkit was developed by our litigators who have helped a number of companies navigate CCPSA compliance audits conducted by Health Canada. We have gained valuable insight into what triggers an audit, what investigators are looking for, and how your company can enhance compliance before an audit.

For more information, please contact Chris Hubbard or Katherine Booth.
