The New Substances Program would like to hear from representatives of industries that are subject or are likely to be subject to fees as a result of submitting new substance notifications. These include companies that produce new chemicals or polymers, and those that import these new substances from abroad.
Key themes on which we invite comments are:
- clarity of the draft Remissions Approach in explaining its scope and application, Environment and Climate Change Canada reporting on compliance with the Service Fees Act, how stakeholders can submit comments, inquiries or complaints; and
- unexpected impact of fee remissions on affected businesses.
Once the comment period is closed, the New Substances Program will finalize the New Substances Remissions Approach. The final document will be posted on the New Substances Notification Fees web page by April 1, 2021.
