Proposed Regulations

Regulations Amending the Prohibition of Certain Toxic Substances Regulations, 2012

The proposed Regulations Amending the Prohibition of Certain Substances Regulations, 2012 (proposed amendments) would modify the Prohibition of Certain Toxic Substances Regulations, 2012 to revise existing controls on Benzenamine, N-phenyl-, reaction products with styrene and 2,4,4-trimethylpentene (BNST).

The proposed amendments would add an exemption for BNST used as an additive in lubricants found in replacement parts. In addition, the proposed amendments would extend the temporary exemption for BNST used as an additive, thereby allowing the manufacture, import, sale and offer for sale of BNST used as an additive in lubricants until March 14, 2025. After the expiry of the temporary exemption for additives in lubricants, permits would be available which are valid for one year and can potentially be renewed twice allowing manufacturers and importers to continue their activities for an additional three years ending on March 14, 2028.
