Health Canada Proposes New Playpen Regulations 2017-05-02

Importers, manufacturers and distributors of playpens are advised that Health Canada is proposing to amend the design and safety standards prescribed under the Playpen Regulations to address a number of safety concerns.
The new Playpen Regulations will be aligned with the current Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations which came into force on December 29, 2016.
A copy of the proposed new Playpen Regulations, including a definition of the products covered by them and other important information, can found in Part 1 of the Canada Gazette -  Vol. 151, No. 16 — April 22, 2017.
The new Playpen Regulations will come into force six months after they are published in the Canada Gazette, Part II, during which time the current Regulations will continue to apply to all playpens sold, advertised, imported or manufactured in Canada.
This will allow industry the opportunity to modify or redesign their products to meet the new regulatory requirements, and verify the regulatory compliance of their products through product testing.
