Changes to the National Pollutant Release Inventory list of speciated volatile organic compounds: Closed consultation
Current status: Closed
This consultation ran from May 3, 2019 to June 27, 2019.
We consulted Canadians about the addition of isomers of propylene glycol methyl ether acetate to the list of National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) substances beginning in 2020. When these substances are released to air, they can contribute to the formation of smog.
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 input on the following topic:
- adding the requirement to report for isomers of propylene glycol methyl ether acetate to the NPRI
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy of the full consultation document.
The input gathered through this process will be used to determine if, beginning in 2020, the NPRI reporting requirements for volatile organic compounds will be changed.
What we heard
A final report, which includes a summary of comments as well as Environment and Climate Change Canada’s responses and actions that will be taken, will be available in early 2020.
