THEREFORE IT BE RESOLVED THAT BPW Canada urges the Government of Canada to evaluate chemicals (both original and by-products) found in personal care, cosmetic and housecleaning products using a hazard-based assessment model similar to the European Union instead of the current risk-based assessment; FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED THAT BPW Canada urges the Government of Canada to develop national labeling standards that clearly state the percentage of daily allowable safe levels of contact and/or usage of each chemical ingredient contained within personal care, cosmetic and housecleaning products; FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED THAT BPW Canada urges the Government of Canada to place these same safety standards on all imported personal care, cosmetic and housecleaning products.
