New substances: acts and regulations
The Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) provides the federal government with authority to address pollution problems on land, in water, and through all layers of the atmosphere. The New Substances notification Regulations (NSNR) specify the prescribed information to be submitted if a substance intended for import or manufacture, is not on the Domestic Substances List (DSL). Please note that Environment Canada will act upon violations to the Regulations, consistent with CEPA 1999’s Compliance and Enforcement Policy for the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.
