The compliance verification projects covered:
– Children’s costumes

A variety of products in each category were assessed against the requirements of the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). Products were selected by Health Canada inspectors and tested at one of their product safety laboratories.
The report issued on May 16, 2023, details the number of products assessed, the number of products that failed to conform, the reason for nonconformity and the corrective actions that were then taken.
