Inspection Services

TSSA conducts random and unannounced inspections of manufacturers, renovators, home hobbyists, importers/distributors, retailers and suppliers of upholstered and stuffed articles. This entails the sampling of the material found in bulk and finished products to ensure that they are in compliance with current upholstered and stuffed articles regulations.

If safety standards have not been met, TSSA can prosecute individuals and/or companies under the Ontario's Provincial Offences Act.

The "White Label" Standard

White Label Standard This white label, found on an upholstered or stuffed article, confirms that the article can be legally sold in Ontario. It identifies the stuffing material contents by generic name and ensures that it's new material only. It also identifies the manufacturer's registration number.

The label must be securely affixed to all upholstered and stuffed articles before you purchase them.

If you can't locate a label, please contact us:
