The Risk Management Action Milestones table outlines the risk management actions that were proposed for the chemical substance in this batch of the Challenge that met the criteria of section 64 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999). These proposed risk management actions were published in the risk management approach documents for these substances. For the complete wording of these proposed actions, please refer to the risk management approach documents.
In October 2013, based on new information that was made available after the original screening assessment report, an Ecological State of the Science report on DEHA was released. The Notice was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 147 No. 41 - October 12, 2013 (PDF Version - 2,430 K) for a 60-day public comment period.
Three substances in this batch (DEHA, PREPOD, and BENPAT) were initially proposed to be added to Schedule 1. Following the publication of the proposed Order for their addition to Schedule 1, Notices of objection and requests for the establishment of Boards of Review were received for two of these substances (DEHA and BENPAT). Both requests to establish Boards of Review were declined. Subsequently, an application for judicial review of the BENPAT decision was received. While the judicial review is underway, a final Order will not be published. However, the remaining two substances, DEHA and PREPOD have been added to Schedule 1.
Two substances in this batch meet the Reduced Regulatory Requirements (RRR) polymer criteria as specified in the New Substances Notification Regulations (NSNR). Therefore, it is recommended that the Domestic Substances List (DSL) be amended to indicate that these substances meet the RRR polymer criteria (apply a "P" flag). Should other forms of these polymers, not meeting the RRR polymer criteria, be introduced on the Canadian market, those polymers would be considered not listed on the DSL, and subject to the requirements of the NSNR. One Order has been published.
One Order has been published addressing six substances in this batch through the application of Significant New Activity (SNAc) provisions.
In January 2017, a Notice of intent to amend the DSL to vary the SNAc requirements for phenyl-D4 (CAS RN 10448-09-6) was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I. The proposed amendment is an outcome of the SNAc Review. The amendment is not in force until the final Order is adopted by the Minister of the Environment pursuant to subsection 87(3) of CEPA 1999. The final Order will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part II. Any current SNAc requirements remain in effect until such time as the final Order is published.
In January 2017, a Notice of intent to amend the DSL to rescind the SNAc requirements for MDnM-hydride (CAS RN 69430-47-3) was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I. The proposed rescission is an outcome the SNAc Review. Potential for environmental persistence, bioaccumulation, and toxicity were identified in the screening assessment, but little data on the substance was available at the time. Since then, a review of silicone-based substances conducted by Environment and Climate Change Canada concluded that this substance has low ecotoxicity as well as low bioaccumulation potential. Also, recent industry surveys revealed that commercial activity for this substance is low, and therefore the likelihood for exposure to humans or the environment is also low. Therefore, the SNAc requirements are proposed to be rescinded for MDnM-hydride. Current SNAc requirements remain in effect until such time as a final Order is published in the Canada Gazette, Part II.

Release of Batch 11 of the Challenge and the accompanying technical documents.
In September 2011, the final screening assessments for this batch were released. Notices relating to this release were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 145, No. 37 - September 10, 2011 (PDF Version - 1,147 K).
The final screening assessments concluded that three substances in this batch meet one or more criteria in section 64 of CEPA 1999. The Government proposed to add these substances to Schedule 1 of the Act. In addition, one of these substances (CAS No. 68412-48-6), has been found to meet the criteria for virtual elimination under subsection 77(4) of the Act, and therefore is being proposed for addition to the Virtual Elimination List. Proposed risk management approach documents were also released on this date for the substances in this batch which met the criteria in section 64 of CEPA 1999.
New information was received from industry or interested stakeholders for each of the 16 substances in this batch. In October 2010, the draft screening assessments were released and the related Notices were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 144, No. 40 - October 2, 2010 (PDF Version - 1,571 K). Risk management scope documents were also released in conjunction with these publications.
Information on substances in this batch was gathered from industry and interested stakeholders through a mandatory survey Notice issued under section 71 of CEPA 1999. They were also invited to complete a voluntary questionnaire.
A Notice related to the launch of Batch 11 was published in September 2009 in the Canada Gazette. The section 71 Notice applied to all 16 substances in this batch.
