  •  (1) Where a person seeks to import a cosmetic into Canada for sale and the sale would constitute a violation of the Act or these Regulations, that person may, if the sale of the cosmetic would be lawful in Canada after relabelling or modification of the cosmetic, import the cosmetic into Canada on condition that

    • (a) he gives to an inspector notice of the proposed importation; and

    • (b) the cosmetic will be relabelled or modified under the supervision of an inspector in such a manner as to enable the sale of the cosmetic to be lawful in Canada.

  • (2) No person shall sell a cosmetic that has been imported into Canada pursuant to subsection (1) unless the cosmetic has been relabelled or modified to the satisfaction of the inspector under whose supervision the relabelling or modification was carried out within three months after the importation of the cosmetic into Canada or within such longer period as the Assistant Deputy Minister may specify.
