In March 2010, the final screening assessment reports for substances in this batch were released in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 144, No. 10 - March 6, 2010 ( PDF Version - 1179 K).
The final screening assessments 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. 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 14 substances in this batch. In September 2009, the draft screening assessment reports were released and the related Notices were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 143, No. 36 - September 5, 2009 ( PDF Version - 597 K). Risk management scope documents were also released in conjunction with these publications.
Comments and the Government's response relating to general themes on the draft screening assessment reports and risk management scope documents are summarized in the Summary of Overarching Public Comments Received on the Draft Screening Assessment Reports and the Risk Management Scope Documents for Batch 7.
