3. Assessment of toxic under CEPA 1999

3.3 Conclusion

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) 64(a) and 64 (b): Based on the available data, it is concluded that the three aluminum salts, aluminum chloride, aluminum nitrate and aluminum sulphate, are not 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 or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

CEPA 1999 64(c): Based on available data concerning the exposure of the Canadian population to aluminum chloride, aluminum nitrate and aluminum sulphate, and in consideration of the health effects observed in humans and in experimental animals, it is concluded that these aluminum salts are not 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 concluded that the three aluminum salts, aluminum chloride, aluminum nitrate and aluminum sulphate, do not meet the definition of “toxic” as set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999.
