The Canadian government is considering banning a key safety feature called DBDPE that helps everything from appliances to consumer electronics to our cars and planes meet safety standards. Don’t let government move forward with these regulations without hearing from Canadians. Have your say today!
DBDPE is a flame retardant that helps keep consumers safe. It is used in many of the products found in our households. However, the Canadian government is considering banning DBDPE. Canada would be the only country in the world where this safety feature is banned. Canadians deserve the same access to safe products as consumers everywhere else. That's why it's important that you take action and stand up for consumer safety.
Consumer safety standards are incredibly important. They help keep our families safe when using appliances, electronics, cars, planes and more. Right now, Canada's high safety standards are being put at risk. Banning this safety product would likely put many consumer goods at greater risk of catching and spreading fire.
Safety should be a primary concern for government when it comes to consumer goods. Canada should be leading the world in safety – not banning key safety features.
The Government of Canada is calling on Canadians to weigh in on proposed regulations that could not only limit Canadians’ access to the latest consumer technology, but potentially make the everyday products we do have access less safe. If you think Canadians deserve access to the latest consumer goods and that our country should be a leader in consumer safety, use the tool below to submit to the public consultation today. Don’t let our government move forward with these regulations without hearing from Canadians.
