Toluene diisocyanates: pollution prevention notice

This notice applies to any person who in 2018 or any time thereafter owns or operates a facility that releases into the ambient air 100 kg or more of toluene diisocyanates (TDIs) per calendar year.

Refer to section 2 of the notice for the complete definition.

If your facility meets the criterion above but you are uncertain whether the notice requirements apply to your facility, contact us for more information.

If the notice does not apply to you, contact us to receive a non-engagement form.

Deadlines

If you become subject to the notice when it was published on February 16, 2019, you must:

  • prepare a pollution prevention plan by March 30, 2020, and submit a report (schedule 1) by April 29, 2020
  • implement a pollution prevention plan by March 30, 2022, and submit a report (schedule 5) by April 29, 2022.

If you become subject to the notice after February 16, 2019, you must:

  • prepare a pollution prevention plan within 12 months of the date you became subject to the notice and then submit a report (schedule 1) within 30 days following the end of the 12-month period

  • implement the pollution prevention plan within 36 months of the date you became subject to the notice and then submit a report (schedule 5) no later than 30 days following the end of the 36-month period.

    Under this scenario, a facility is considered to become subject to the notice on the last day of the month where it reached the 100 kg annual release threshold.

    Example: a facility reached the 100 kg annual threshold on October 12, 2021, and the facility never reached this threshold in previous years. The facility will be considered to have become subject to the notice on October 31, 2021. The facility would have to prepare a pollution prevention plan by October 31, 2022 and implement the plan by October 21, 2024.
