The Canadian Painting and Coatings Association (CPCA) says its new Canadian Coatings HUB to assist members with regulatory compliance.
“We strongly believe that associations must manage the vast amount of data sources members need in a practical and functional manner rather than continue the practice of death by a thousand emails,” says CPCA president and CEO Gary LeRoux.
Chemical assessment and chemical communications requires a comprehensive set of data points to capture and disseminate the required data throughout complex supply chains,” the association says. Users are able to track industry issues in real-time with filtering capabilities and resources categorized by industry issue.
“The Canada CoatingsHUB provides member organizations with issue specific-resources, qualified news, and industry information to support issue management and regulatory compliance within their organizations. All resources are searchable by keyword. CPCA’s Compliance Calendar alerts members to important compliance dates and deadlines. The HUB will greatly simplify navigating Canadian industry issues, legislation and regulations specific to the coatings industry for CPCA member companies.
“It provides members with the critical data they need for important decision-making on a wide range of chemicals used in thousands of consumer and industrial products,” the association says in a statement. “Members can create their own individual dashboard, set priorities and identify resource types needed to do their job.”
Meanwhile, CPCA says its newly launched website “provides relevant information and insight on an industry that is often overlooked.
“It highlights the importance of coatings products in everyday life and the many environmental benefits derived from coatings products in the architectural, automotive and industrial sectors. It also showcases how coatings products help reduce the environmental footprint of other industries,” the CPCA announcement says.
