Two-year rolling information gathering plan

Information from industry is required to inform approaches and decision making for chemical substances. This Two-year Rolling Information Gathering Plan is intended to provide stakeholders with an overview of active and potential upcoming information gathering initiatives. The table below refers to information gathering initiatives according to the anticipated start of the data gathering request. The data gathering approach for these initiatives may be through mandatory surveys (e.g., section 71 notices) or through voluntary surveys, including targeted emails in which Environment and Climate Change Canada and Health Canada are following up on information obtained through previous information gathering initiatives.

Information gathering initiatives are timed to inform priority setting, risk assessment and risk management activities. In the case of risk assessments, the information is useful six months in advance of the assessment start date. The information can be submitted using the online reporting system on Environment and Climate Change Canada's Single Window (select the “Chemicals Management - General”).

As additional information gathering initiatives are required to inform priority setting, risk assessments, or risk management of other substances, they will be included in this Plan. This Plan will be updated yearly or as required. This plan should not be considered an exhaustive list of information gathering initiatives as ad hoc requests may be required or new information gathering initiatives may emerge.
