Consumers will benefit from federal initiative to modernize Hazardous Products and Food & Drugs acts



    OTTAWA, Dec. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Canadian consumers will benefit from
greater transparency and accountability, and better access to products and
brands as a result of the federal government's announcement today of its Food
and Consumer Safety Action Plan, said the Canadian Consumer Products
Association (CCSPA).
    "The new measures will modernize the Hazardous Products Act and the Food
& Drugs Act," said CCSPA President Shannon Coombs. "We welcome this initiative
and look forward to working with the federal government on this important
project in 2008. These critical pieces of legislation protect Canadians, which
is also a priority for CCSPA's member companies who are leaders in the
responsible use of chemicals for safe and beneficial consumer and
institutional products in Canada."
