A new online compliance information centre, to be established by the Ontario provincial government, will make it easier for small businesses that manufacture plastic products to understand and comply with their legal responsibilities.
The Compliance Information Centre for Manufacturers of Plastic Products will provide regulatory information such as consumer protection, health and safety of workers, employment standards, environmental protection and submitting taxes.
The online centre is expected to be completed by spring 2007.
This is a win-win situation for both small business and government, Serge Lavoie, president and CEO of the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA), said. We are looking forward to working with the government to create an information centre that will allow companies to access information quickly on what they need to do to remain compliant.
The CPIA will be working with the government over the next few months to ensure that the online centre reflects the business needs of the plastics industry.
The centre is being modeled on a successful online compliance information centre for the auto body repair industry launched in June 2006. That online centre received more than 75,000 hits in the first three months after its launch.
