Based on the information presented in this draft screening assessment, it is proposed that quinoline is entering or may be entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity.
On the basis of the carcinogenicity of quinoline, for which there may be a probability of harm at any level of exposure, it is proposed that quinoline may be entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.
It is therefore proposed that quinoline meets the criteria in section 64 of CEPA 1999. Additionally, it is proposed that quinoline meets the criteria for persistence but not for bioaccumulation potential as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations (Canada 2000).
This substance will be considered for inclusion in the in the Domestic Substances List inventory update initiative. In addition and where relevant, research and monitoring will support verification of assumptions used during the screening assessment and, where appropriate, the performance of potential control measures identified during the risk management phase.
