Ontario Regulation Changes

The government is planning to update their regulations to limit annual licensing requirements to bedding, mattresses and upholstered furniture articles. Second-hand materials would still be allowed as stuffing, provided they comply with the sterilization standards; labeling requirements would be simplified to give businesses greater flexibility; home hobby and craft operators would no longer need licensing; and  they plan on introducing mandatory incident reporting. Before moving forward with these changes, the Ministry will be opening up consultation and reviewing comments this summer and into the fall. They are currently operating under the status quo, but change is imminent. Please CONTACT Ontario for more information.
