On May 2, 2018, Health Canada issued the Consumer Products Lead Containing Regulations SOR/2018-83, and the SOR/2010-273 Lead Containing Consumer Products (Contact with Mouth) Regulations will be repealed. All proposed terms have been approved and will take effect on November 2, 2018.
Compared with SOR/2010-273, the main contents of SOR/2018-83 include:
1. SOR/2018-83 applicable products are updated as follows:
    a. Products that will come into contact with the user's mouth during normal use, except for:
   (i) Kitchen utensils;
   (ii) Products subject to the Regulations on Glazed Ceramics and Glassware.
    b. Clothing or clothing accessories used by children under the age of 14;
    c. Products for children under 14 years of age to learn or play (note: the existing regulations only provide for children under 3 years of age).
    d. Books or similar printed products used by children under 14 years old, except for products:
   (i) Printed on paper or cardboard;
   (ii) Use traditional materials and use traditional methods to print and bind.
        Products that assist children under 4 years of age to relax, sleep, sanitize, or transport.
2. The lead content limit for each accessible part of the products within this range is still 90 mg/kg.
3. The list of exemptions from the old and new regulations is consistent. The lead content requirements of accessible parts can be exempted in the following situations:
    a. Lead is closely related to the basic characteristics of the component;
    b. There are no substitute parts with less lead content;
    c. The amount of lead released from the component does not exceed 90 mg/kg.
