From what I understand many in Canada are fluent in both languages.
Spanishis on many labels as the Spanish population is growing. However it is not mandatory.

The same reason Puerto Rico speaks Spanish.

The United States has NO official language.

Quote:
The most common language in the United States is known as American English. However, no official language exists at the federal level. There have been several proposals to make English the national language.

I did. They've streamlined the process to be closer to the US, and not once does it mention MSDS requirement for French, and you've had three years to get ready for whatever changes are in process.

What is it about "in close harmony with the U.S. regulations" do you not understand?

You've since stated no other country requires this while claiming to do business world wide and in your own link it specifically states Canada bringing it's labelling requirements into "harmony" with those already in existence in the U.S.

What about this am I failing to understand?

A country of over 350 million consumers requires you to perform this already and you're suggesting the one with only 35 million is causing you egregious expense? Not getting it.

In the USA ONLY English is required. In Canada:

What information is required on a supplier label?

Supplier labels must be written in English and French. They may be bilingual (as one label), or available as two labels (one each in English and French).

The standard also reuires the SDS to be done in both. This is a major expense for supplying far fewer companies in Canada than in the US. I am still trying to figure out why a customer in Alberta needs it in French?????

Don't the teach English in Quebec as they do in France???

Dual language labeling guidelines have been around literally for decades at this point. If it's too much baggage, don't sell, but for goodness sakes, quit whining like a little b over something that is older than the vast majority of people even on this forum.


Those are the rules. Abide by them, or don't. No one cares.

Sounds like it is a bigger problem for you than it is for Canada. Unless what you are selling is world-unique, indispensible and cannot be produced in any way by anyone else.
