Final Screening Assessment

Stream 4 Heavy Fuel Oils

The final screening assessment concluded that these seven substances do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), therefore the Ministers of the Environment and Climate Change and of Health proposed to take no further action on these substances at this time under the Act. No proposed risk management approach document was prepared.
