Reduced Regulatory Requirement (RRR) Polymer Criteria

Two substances in this batch meet the Next link will take you to another Web site Reduced Regulatory Requirements (RRR) polymer criteria as specified in the Next link will take you to another Web site 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 Next link will take you to another Web site "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.

Final Screening Assessment and Risk Management Approaches

In September 2011, the final screening assessment reports for this batch were released. Notices relating to this release were published in the Next link will take you to another Web site Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 145, No. 37 - September 10, 2011 (Next link will take you to another Web site PDF Version - 1,147 K).

The final screening assessment concluded that three substances in this batch meet one or more criteria in section 64 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (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 Next link will take you to another Web site 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.

Draft Screening Assessment Reports and Risk Management Scopes

New information was received from industry or interested stakeholders for each of the 16 substances in this batch. In October 2010, the draft screening assessment reports were released and the related Notices were published in the Next link will take you to another Web site Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 144, No. 40 - October 2, 2010 (Next link will take you to another Web site PDF Version - 1,571 K).
