Consumer Product Enforcement Summary Report: Bedding

Cyclical Enforcement Project: Textile Flammability Regulations (Bedding)

Fiscal Year 2014/2015


The Consumer Product Safety Program (CPSP) administers and enforces the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) and regulations made under it.

The purpose of this Cyclical Enforcement (CE) project was to verify compliance of bedding products which are subject to the Textile Flammability Regulations.

For this project, compliance of bedding products with the Textile Flammability Regulations is determined through a sampling and testing process by which Health Canada inspectors visit establishments and sample any relevant product(s). Compliance to the requirements listed under the regulations is then verified through testing at the Product Safety Laboratory.

Prior to initiating this CE project, the CPSP carried out a market survey to quantify the presence of bedding product industry members in Canada. Targets were then selected from that list of companies.

Over the course of the 2014/15 fiscal year, testing of twenty different products was carried out. The testing did not identify any compliance issues with the twenty products and as a result, no corrective actions were required.

Disclaimer: A systematic bias is applied during inspection and sampling. Products are not randomly selected but are chosen because they are deemed by the inspector to be more likely to not meet health and safety requirements due to characteristics that are observed. Due to this biased nature of sampling and the fact that sample sizes within CE projects are very small, the findings of CE projects are not intended to reflect overall market compliance unless otherwise stated. Note that these summary reports relate only to the product(s) actually tested and the specific criteria indicated. Testing by Health Canada does not represent approval or endorsement of the product(s).
