Gowling WLG has one of the strongest environmental regulatory practices in Canada. Time and time again, our professionals have been internationally recognized for their specialist knowledge in environmental law — an edge gained through a commitment to providing the highest level of regulatory, environmental and advertising service to our clients.
Our Chemicals Group is made up of a dedicated team of experts in offices across Canada. Through its broad-reaching and locally focused, interdisciplinary approach, our firm endeavours to help clients negotiate the complex terrain of regulations in a strategic and cost-effective manner.
We work with companies of all sizes, guiding them through the necessary steps to comply with regulatory frameworks for products in many industries, such as chemicals, consumer products, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food, pest control and fertilizer. We act for chemical and product manufacturers, importers, carriers and users of chemicals on provincial and federal regulatory matters.
Our advice spans all levels of the product commercialization cycle, including:
Manufacturing, registering, importing, packaging, labelling, use and disposal of food and chemical substances
Managing product licence submissions with Health Canada and/or Environment Canada
Post-licensing issues, including enforcement
Reporting and record-keeping obligations
In particular, as part of the product review process for drugs and natural health products, we examine individual product ingredients (medicinal and non-medicinal) to determine whether there are any overt regulatory matters specific to those ingredients.
