In June 2014, Health Canada announced a Regulatory Initiative to amend the Children’s Jewelry Regulations (SOR/2011-19) (1).  Health Canada is proposing an amendment to reduce children’s exposure to lead and cadmium in children’s jewelry that can fit into a small parts cylinder. The proposed limits restrict lead content to no more than 90 mg/kg and cadmium content to no more than 130 mg/kg in the affected products.

The announcement advises that Canadians will have the opportunity to provide additional input during the Canada Gazette, Part 1 public comment period, which is anticipated to take place during the Fall of 2014 and will last 75 days.
