(PDF Version - 10 KB)

Comments on the Proposed Risk Management Approach document for 2-MEA to be addressed as part of the Chemicals Management Plan Challenge were provided by Learning Disabilities Association of Canada and the International Institute of Concern for Public Health. The table contains a condensed version of each comment, and a response in non-technical terms.
2-MEA should be prohibited in consumer products and cosmetics. In addition, Canadian regulations should emulate European Union requirements that prohibit the use of 2-MEA in consumer products.

No submission was received under section 71 of CEPA 1999 to indicate that 2-MEA was present in consumer products or cosmetics in Canada.

Since 2-MEA is not used in the United States or European Union, it is not likely to be found in Canadian consumer products or cosmetics. Exposures to 2-MEA are expected to be negligible.
