On December 9, 2006, a notice with respect to the draft screening assessment report on 148 PBiT substances was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, along with a notice of intent to amend the Domestic Substances List to apply the Significant New Activity provisions under subsection 81(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 to these 148 substances.
There was a 60-day public comment period associated with these publications.
During the public comment period, the Ministers of the Environment and of Health received information that indicated that two of these substances are, in fact, in commerce in Canada (being imported or manufactured in Canada in quantities above 100 kg per calendar year). These two substances are:
|CAS No.||Substance Name|
|13080-86-9||Benzenamine, 4,4′ -[(1-methylethylidene)bis(4,1-phenyleneoxy)]bis-|
|71032-95-6||2-Naphthalenesulfonic acid, 7-[[4,6-bis[[3-(diethylamino)propyl]amino]-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl]amino]-4-hydroxy-3-[[4-(phenylazo)phenyl]azo]-, monoacetate (salt)|
Therefore these two substances have been added to the group of substances being addressed in the Challenge initiative under the Chemicals Management Plan. The first of these substances, CAS RN 13080-86-9, has been added to Batch 12, while the second, CAS RN 71032-95-6, has been added to Batch 9.
Further information and details on how to participate in the Challenge for these substances will be released when these Batches of the Challenge are launched.
