Countdown is well underway!

In fact, step 2 of the transition period ended on September 1st 2018!

During this phase of the transition period, distributors can continue to sell products whose labels and Safety Data Sheets were consistent with either WHMIS1988 or WHMIS 2015 but not using both systems!

We are therefore at the beginning of Phase 3 of the transition period (September 1st, 2018 to November 30, 2018).


During this phase, manufacturers, importers and distributors will be required to sell or import only WHMIS 2015-compliant products. Consequently, the transition to WHMIS 2015 will be completed for all suppliers.

Effective December 1st, 2018, employers and suppliers will be required to comply with the Hazardous Products Act (HPA) and the Hazardous Products Regulations (HPR). The education and training program for all employees will have to be given in accordance with these requirements.

If you have any questions or specific needs for your documents or training, do not hesitate to call us 450 906-6999.
