New substances program

The New Substances program is responsible for administering the New Substances Notification Regulations of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA). These regulations ensure that no new substances (chemicals, polymers or organisms) are introduced into the Canadian marketplace before undergoing ecological and human health assessments, and that any appropriate or required control measures have been taken.
