For retailers who sell blinds in Canada: New corded window covering regulations

New Corded Window Covering Regulations were passed May 1, 2019. Though the Government was determined on passing this regulation, RCC secured significant wins including:

  • A 2-year transition period, as opposed to the original 6 months that was proposed,
  • Relaxed technical requirements, and
  • Agreement from Health Canada to facilitate compliance, including confirming which product types currently on the market will not be affected by the new rules.

RCC will work with members, Government and manufacturers to ensure member compliance with the new requirements.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact: Jason McLinton, Vice President, Grocery Division and Regulatory Affairs at: jmclinton@retailcouncil.org  or 613-656-7903 or Cory Anderson, Senior Manager, Government Relations and Regulatory Affairs at: canderson@retailcouncil.org or 613-656-7901
