Regulatory Initiative: Amendments to the Textile Labelling and Advertising Regulations
Description of objective:
The proposed amendments are to the Textile Labelling and Advertising Regulations (TLAR) under the authority of the Textile Labelling Act (TLA).
The purpose of the TLA and its Regulations is to provide for the labelling, sale, importation and advertising of consumer textile articles in a way that is accurate and meaningful to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions.
The proposed amendments would: address the recommendations of the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations to amend the TLAR to better reflect the legislative authority found under the TLA; align the TLAR with the TLA to reflect the Commissioner of Competition's responsibility for the administration and enforcement of the TLAR; and, enhance clarity of the regulations.
Indication of business impacts:
There are no expected business impacts.
A public consultation was held on the proposed amendments when they were first introduced. The Competition Bureau received responses from 15 organizations. The amendments were originally expected to be passed in 2015 but did not proceed due to the dissolution of Parliament.
It is expected that the previously proposed amendments will be pre-published in the Canada Gazette, Part 1, by Fall 2017, followed by a 75-day comment period.
