Appendix I

List of Substances for Targeted Reductions for Screenprinters and Digital Imagers*

The following lists have been reviewed to identify those toxics substances and other substances of concern that may be found within the screenprinting and digital imaging industries: National Pollutant Release Inventory, Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) Schedule I, Priority Substances List 1 (PSL1), Priority Substances List 2 (PSL2), Binational Toxics Strategy (BTS), Canada-Ontario Agreement (COA) and the Toronto Sewer Use Bylaw.

The tables below include those toxic substances and other substances of concern that may be found within screenprinting and digital imaging processes. The tables are organized both by chemical name and Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) number.

* Participating facilities will target an aggregate VOC reduction of 20 percent. Targeted reductions include, but are not limited to, the substances listed below.
