Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), a Significant New Activity (SNAc) Notice may be adopted when Environment Canada and Health Canada suspect that a significant new activity, in relation to a substance that has undergone an assessment, may pose new or increased risks to the environment and/or human health.

This is an extract of the substances search engine to facilitate the identification and searchability of substances subject to a SNAc notice.

This list will be updated monthly.

Note: Empty fields only indicate that there is no record to report.

Flags:

  • The "S" flag: The letter "S" after a substance identifier indicates that the SNAc provisions of the Act apply to the substance (see the list of SNAcs).
  • The "S' (prime)" flag: The letter " S' " (S prime) after a substance identifier indicates that the SNAc provisions of the Act apply to substance that was already listed on the DSL (see the list of DSL / NDSL updates).
  • The "P" flag: The letter "P" after a substance identifier indicates that the substance was assessed and added to the DSL on the basis that it met the Reduced Regulatory Requirements (RRR) polymer criteria (see section 3.4.1.3 of the Guidelines) and that there was no suspicion of toxicity with this form of the substance. Please note that the purpose of the "P" flag is to indicate that relevant information respecting the flagged polymer must be renotified if anyone, including the original notifier, manufactures or imports the polymer, in Canada, in a form that no longer meets the RRR polymer criteria.
  • The "T" flag: The letter "T" after a substance identifier indicates that the substance was manufactured or imported during the transitional period (e.g. between January 1, 1987, and July 1, 1994).
  • The "N" flag: The letter "N" after a substance identifier indicates that the substance was manufactured or imported after July 1, 1994.
  • "No": The word "No" indicates that the substance is not specified on the DSL but it is subject to a SNAc.
