The CRA does not provide legal advice. A link is provided that provides you with a legal memo that the CRA sought on the issue and had cleared for circulation amongst the CRA membership.
Many restaurants are receiving these BPA Warning signs from manufacturers and that prompts the question whether this new requirement applies to restaurants. If you are in need of the legally required Proposition 65 signs (other than BPA), they can be purchased from our online store.
The Emergency Regulation appears heavily focused on “manufacturers” and “retailers.” The provided memo appears to indicate that many restaurants should be compliant as long as they are posting the currently required Proposition 65 signs (general exposure sign, alcohol sign/ and any legally required sign your company specifically may have to hang due to a court settlement).
The memo, among other things, also covers instances where a restaurant may have a retail shop and out of an abundance of caution may want to also provide this new BPA signage. Application of this new requirement will differ from restaurant to restaurant, so you are strongly encouraged to consult legal counsel.
