Release of Batch 9 of the Challenge and the accompanying technical documents.
In September 2010, the final screening assessment reports for substances in this batch were released in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 144, No. 38 - September 18, 2010 ( PDF Version - 1140 K).
The final screening assessments concluded that four 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 17 substances in this batch. In March 2010, the draft screening assessment reports were released and the related Notices were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 144, No. 12 - March 20, 2010 ( PDF Version - 3056 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 9.
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 9 was published in March 2009 in the Canada Gazette. The section 71 Notice applied to all 17 substances in this batch.
