Addition of chlorhexidine and its salts to the National Pollutant Release Inventory: Closed consultation
Current status: Closed
This consultation ran from March 3, 2021 to May 12, 2021.
We consulted Canadians about adding chlorhexidine (and its salts) to the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) beginning in 2022.
Who was the focus of this consultation
The Government of Canada engaged with:
- a multi-stakeholder work group (includes representatives from industry associations, environmental non-government organizations, and Indigenous organizations)
- members of the public
Key questions for discussion
We sought your ideas and input around the following topics:
- whether to add chlorhexidine (and its salts) to the list of substances that must be reported to the NPRI
- the proposed reporting threshold of 100 kg of chlorhexidine and its salts manufactured, processed or otherwise used above 1% concentration
What we heard
A final report, which will include a summary of comments as well as Environment and Climate Change Canada's responses and actions, will be available by March 2022.
