Deletion of decabromodiphenyl oxide from the National Pollutant Release Inventory: Closed consultation
Current status: Closed
This consultation ran from May 3, 2019 to June 27, 2019.
We consulted Canadians about the removal of decabromodiphenyl oxide (decaBDE) from the list of National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) substances beginning in 2020.
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 around the following topic:
- whether to remove decaBDE from the list of substances that must be reported to the NPRI
The import, manufacture, use or sale of decaBDE in Canada has been severely restricted, resulting in very low releases being reported. Therefore, ECCC proposes that releases of this substance no longer need to be tracked by the NPRI.

The input gathered through this process was used to determine if decaBDE would be deleted from the NPRI beginning in 2020.
