Federal environmental quality guidelines summary table

The development of Federal Environmental Quality Guidelines (FEQGs) is the responsibility of the Federal Minister of Environment under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999). The intent is to develop FEQGs as an adjunct to risk assessment/risk management of priority chemicals identified in the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP) or other federal initiatives. To date, 83 guidelines have been published.

For more information on FEQGs and to access factsheets, please consult the Federal Environmental Quality Guidelines page.
