Product safety policy
eBay strongly supports the efforts of the Canadian Consumer Products Safety group of Health Canada (CPS) to protect consumers against potentially hazardous goods. eBay does not permit the listing of items that do not comply with product safety regulations or have been identified by Health Canada as hazardous to consumers and therefore subject to a recall.
Make sure your listings and products follow these guidelines. If they don't, they may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including limits of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
Sellers on eBay should check with Health Canada to ensure that the products they're selling have not been the subjects of a recall. Health Canada protects consumers by issuing warnings about goods that might be hazardous, and even issuing recalls of certain products. Buyers on eBay should educate themselves about hazardous and recalled products. The Health Canada website and the OECD Global Recalls portal have information on regulations and recalled products.
In addition, sellers and buyers on eBay should not circumvent Canadian laws by listing prohibited products for sale or buying products for import into Canada from another eBay site.
For information on other recalled items please consult with the agencies and commissions listed below:
Some laws and regulations don't allow the sale of unsafe and/or recalled items.
