On May 2, 2018, Health Canada published changes to the Children’s Jewellery Regulations in the Canada Gazette. The amended requirements are intended to improve the overall safety of children’s jewelry as well as align to the 90 mg/kg proposed limit under the Canada Consumer Product safety Act (CCPSA) for other products.


The following changes have been made to the Children’s Jewellery Regulations under the Canada Consumer Safe Products Act (CCPSA):


(1) Adds a 130 mg/kg total cadmium limit for children’s jewelry items small enough to be swallowed by a child.


(2) Replaces the current 600 mg/kg total lead limit and 90 mg/kg migratable lead limit with a single 90 mg/kg total lead limit for all children’s jewelry items.


Children’s jewelry is defined as jewelry that is manufactured, sized, decorated, packaged, advertised or sold in a manner that appeals primarily to children under 15 years of age but does not include merit badges, medals for achievement or other similar objects normally worn occasionally.


The amended regulation will go into effect November 2, 2018.


For more information the full text of the legislation can be found on Canada Gazette
