On February 26, 2011, the government of Canada proposed regulations that would prohibit the manufacture of, import into and sale in Canada of certain products containing mercury. The regulations, titled Regulations Respecting Products Containing Certain Substances Listed in Schedule 1 to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, would allow some mercury-containing products (for example, dental fillings, scientific instruments and fluorescent lamps) to be manufactured in, imported into and sold in Canada. The proposed regulations were subject to a comment period that ended March 12, 2011.
