Risk management action milestones for Batch 10 chemical substances

The chemical substance listed below is from Batch 10 of the Challenge, and this substance has met the criteria of section 64 (a) and (c) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999). The table below compiles the proposed risk management actions for health and environment and provides the current status and any updated information for these proposed actions. For the complete wording of these proposed actions, please refer to the risk management approach document listed in the summary of Batch 10 substances and publications.

Batch 10

CAS No. 302-01-2
Common Name: Hydrazine
Authority Risk Management Actions Most Recent Milestone
CEPA 1999 Significant New Activity (SNAc) provision. The application of the SNAc provisions was proposed for hydrazine to address the human health concerns. However, further analysis has indicated that due to its chemistry, hydrazine would only be present in a consumer product at low residual levels. As a result, there are no likely new exposure sources of hydrazine for the general population of Canada that would reasonably be suspected to lead to increased risks to human health. Therefore, this risk management instrument to address the human health concerns is no longer being pursued. An Order amending the Domestic Substances List for hydrazine will not be published. This decision is consistent with  Policy on the use of SNAc provisions of CEPA 1999, published in December 2013.
CEPA 1999 Notice requiring the preparation and implementation of pollution prevention plans in respect of hydrazine related to the electricity sector. A pollution prevention planning (P2) notice was published in Canada Gazette, Part I on November 10, 2018.
CEPA 1999 Lower the regulated threshold for the preparation and implementation of environmental emergency plans under the  Environmental Emergency Regulations. Upon further evaluation this risk management action is no longer considered necessary at this time.
CEPA 1999  Proposal to lower the NPRI reporting threshold. The NPRI reporting threshold was reduced from 10 tonnes to 1 tonne starting with the 2014 reporting year.
