Q-2, r. 30
Regulation to prohibit the sale of certain dishwashing detergents
ENVIRONMENT QUALITY — DISHWASHING DETERGENTS
Environment Quality Act
(chapter Q-2, ss. 31, 46, 115.27 and 115.34)
This Regulation applies to dishwashing detergents for domestic use.
O.C. 544-2008, s. 1
In this Regulation, “phosphorus” means elemental phosphorus.
O.C. 544-2008, s. 2
As of 1 July 2010, no dishwashing detergent may be offered for sale, sold, distributed or otherwise made available to consumers unless
it contains less than 0.5% phosphorus by weight; and
the package indicates the percentage by weight of the phosphorus content of the product.
The phosphorus content indicated on the package is determined by a laboratory accredited by the Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks under section 118.6 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2). If the detergent is manufactured outside Québec, the phosphorus content is determined by a laboratory whose analyzes are made in compliance with
a standard method of the American Society for Testing and Materials; or
a Canadian or international standard method recognized by the Standards Council of Canada.
O.C. 544-2008, s. 3
Every person who commits an offence against this Regulation is liable,
in the case of a natural person, to a fine of $2,000 to $20,000 for a first offence and $4,000 to $40,000 for any subsequent offence; and
in the case of a legal person, to a fine of $6,000 to $120,000 for a first offence and $12,000 to $240,000 for any subsequent offence.
