New Substances Program Information Note 2008-02

Update on the Proposal to remove Non-eligible substances from the Domestic Substances List


(PDF Version - 18 Ko)

This note describes the results of information received in response to the Notice to Interested Parties - Intent to Delete Non--eligible Substances from the Domestic Substances List (DSL).

The personnel of the New Substances Program would like to thank all the companies that provided information in response to the Notice to Interested Parties -- Intent to Delete Non--eligible Substances from the Domestic Substances List (DSL), published in the Canada Gazette , Part I, on November 11, 2006.


Background

  • A Notice of Intent advising the public of the intention of the Minister of the Environment to delete 1105 non-eligible substances from the DSLwas published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on November 11, 2006.
  • During the 180-day period following publication of the Notice of Intent, interested parties could provide evidence showing that any of the 1105 substances meet the eligibility criteria set out in subsection 66(1) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).
  • Interested parties were also invited to submit information on substances to which eligibility cannot be attested, but which are known to be currently in commerce or used in Canada.
  • The information and comments received were analyzed and the results are presented below.

Results of the Notice

Of the 1105 substances listed in the November 2006 Notice of Intent, Environment Canada received information on 574 substances from 57 companies. The results are as follows:

  • Interested parties have provided information or substantiating documentation indicating that the 88 substances listed by their Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) Registry Numbers in Appendix A of the present document meet the criteria prescribed in subsection 66(1) of CEPA 1999. These substances will therefore not be deleted from the DSL.
  • Environment Canada received no information for 534 substances (listed by their CAS Registry Numbers in Appendix B) indicating that they are currently in commerce in Canada or used for commercial manufacturing in Canada or that they meet the criteria set out in subsection 66(1) of CEPA 1999. The Minister of the Environment deleted these substances from the DSL and added them to the Non-Domestic Substances List (NDSL) on June 25, 2008, pursuant to subsection 66(4) of CEPA 1999[1]. Note that should eligibility be demonstrated after a substance has been deleted from the DSL, the substance can be re-listed.
  • Finally, while information was provided for 483 substances (listed by their CAS Registry Numbers in Appendix C) to substantiate that they are in commerce in Canada, no information was provided to substantiate that they meet the criteria prescribed in subsection 66(1) of CEPA 1999. The Minister of the Environment will therefore delete these substances from the DSLand consider adding them to the NDSL pursuant to subsection 66(4) of CEPA 1999.

With reference to the last point, these measures are expected to be taken in the fall of 2008. However, the information provided indicates that, in most cases, these (483) substances are in commerce at quantities below 1000 kilograms (kg) per year. When substances are deleted from the DSL and added to the NDSL, companies manufacturing or importing such substances in quantities greater than 1000 kg per year have to submit a New Substances Notification (NSN). Based on the information received, about 13 of the 483 substances at issue here may require NSNs. We suggest that companies using one or more of the substances listed in Appendix C keep track of the manufactured and imported quantities of each substance to ensure they do not exceed the maximum quantity that triggers the need for a notification.

Companies may submit information on substances prior to their being deleted from the DSL. Upon request, the New Substances Program will organize a pre-notification consultation to review the information. For more information about pre-notification consultations, please contact the New Substances Notification Information Line at 1-800-567-1999 (within Canada), or 1-819-953-7156 (outside Canada).

Information Sharing Agreement

The New Substances Program provides an opportunity for notifiers of a common new substance to exchange data through the use of an Information-Sharing Agreement (ISA). The ISA may reduce both duplication of testing and the expense of developing information for an NSNpackage. Any company interested in entering into an ISA should fill out the "Information-Sharing Agreement" form found in Appendix D of this information note and mail it to:

In Commerce List (ICL)

In 2001, Health Canada created the In-Commerce List (ICL), which is a list of substances used solely in products regulated under the Food and Drugs Act and that were in commerce between January 1, 1987, and September 13, 2001. For further information on adding a substance to the ICL, please visit the In-Commerce List of Food and Drugs Act Substances.
