Nobleford, Alberta TOL 1SO New packaging regulations go into effect OTTAWA (CP) Some items are affected by the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act put into effect Friday by Consumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray after 2Vz years on the government shelf. Parts of the act, which requires bilingual labelling, will not be enforced for up to two years so manufacturers can make required label changes, the consumer affairs department said. The act contains guards against misleading or deceptive labelling as well as provision for standardization of some product packages. These take immediate effect. Two other sets of regulations, requiring food product labels to carry a date at which freshness is lost and a list of all in- gredients are expected to be announced in the next two weeks, a consumer affairs official said These regulations come under the Food and Drug Act and their announcement will allow manufacturers to make all new federal labelling changes at once The labelling regulations require manufacturers of both food and non-food products to provide detailed information on the label of any pre-packaged product, under threat of fines, jail terms or both. These regulations will be published in the March 13 Canada Gazette and will take up to two years to come into effect Manufacturers must identify the product in both official lan- guages as well as state the net contents of the package. The name and principal place of business of the manufacturer must also be shown on the label Announcement of the regulations and final proclamation of the packaging and labelling act, originally approved by Par- liament in July, 1971, is a move long-awaited by consumer af- fairs critics. The 1972 annual report of the Canadian Consumer Council, an advisory body within the department, referred to "the non- ernergence of regulations" under the act as a "classic case of apparent bureaucratic footdragging." The report complained that the department Jiad kept its long- standing negotiations with industry associations over the regulations too closely under wraps Mr Gray said in an interview some manufacturers and in- dustry groups wanted much longer periods in which to adjust their labelling procedures. Failure to comply with the regulations is punishable by a fine of up on summary conviction, up to six months in jail or both If indicated, a manufacturer faces a fine up to a jail term up to one year or both Deceptive labelling that misleads the buyer about the amount or the quality of the contents may mean a fine of not more than on summary conviction and not more than on indictment The act also requires standardization of package containers for some products where there is proliferation which confuses or misleads buyers as to which is the better bargain Each standardization program will be done in consultation with industry and consumer group representatives The department has already worked out regulations providing for standardization of toothpaste, shampoo, skin creams and other lotion containers Mr Gray said discussions on the proposed regulations had been under way throughout 1972 Included in the discussions were industry representatives and the Consumers Association of Canada Last fall, a set of proposed regulations was pub- lished with an invitation to both industry and consumer groups to submit their opinions. Veterans land act closing reviewed OTTAWA (CP) Termina- tion of the Veterans Land Act, scheduled for the end of this month, is being reviewed by the government, Veterans Affairs Minister Dan MacDonald said Friday. He hopes to make public the results of the review in the near future, he said in reply to a question in the Commons from Jack Marshall Georges-St. Barbel. Mr. Marshall said this is the same answer given for the last year to questions about the act. The act provides assistance to veterans in acquiring land and housing. The government stopped taking applications for assistance in 1968 and at the end of March was due to end consideration of the appli- cations. Approval of applications did not mean that the veteran had to use the assistance imme- diately. He could wait until some future lime But Mr. Marshall and other en tics have said the govern- BOO MEDICINE HAT ALBERTA .Total Capital Investment 1974-5-1 Petrochemical Residential Commrciil PROFESSIONAL, SKILLED and UNSKILLED WORKERS REQUIRED For infof nuilion wrilaj to: CHAMBER OF COMMERCE P.O.
