Information gathering

2019 Voluntary information gathering

In May 2019, a voluntary information gathering questionnaire was distributed to certain stakeholders regarding 1 substance in this batch (2-butanone, oxime). Information received through this questionnaire is being gathered to evaluate risk management measures established under the Code of Practice for 2-Butanone, oxime (Butanone oxime) Associated with the Interior Application of Consumer Alkyd Paint and Coating Products. The questionnaire applies to those who, during the 2018 calendar year, manufactured, imported or sold interior or dual use (interior/exterior) consumer alkyd paint and coating products containing 2-Butanone, oxime or were responsible for ensuring their compliance with Canadian labelling requirements.

For more information or to participate in this information gathering initiative, contact the Substances Management Information Line at eccc.substances.eccc@canada.ca. Completed questionnaires can be submitted using Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Single Window  by July 12, 2019.

2008 Mandatory survey – section 71 notice

In August 2008, a notice was issued in Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol.142, No.35 - August 30, 2008 under section 71 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999). This notice applied to all 14 substances in this batch.

Substance Groupings Initiative

The following substances in this batch have been included in the Aromatic Azo and Benzidine-based Substance Grouping under the Substance Groupings Initiative as part of the second phase of the Chemicals Management Plan. As outlined in the notice of intent for the Aromatic Azo and Benzidine-based Substance Grouping, it was recognized that assessments and conclusions pertaining to some of the substances in the grouping may be subsequently updated as part of the subgroup assessment. The latest updates on these substances are found on the respective Substance Groupings Initiative pages.

Risk management action milestones

The risk management action milestones table outlines the risk management actions that were proposed for the chemical substances in this batch of the Challenge that met the criteria of section 64 of CEPA 1999. These proposed risk management actions were published in the risk management approaches for these substances. For the complete wording of these proposed actions, please refer to the risk management approaches.

Adding substances to Schedule 1

Three substances in this batch have been included in final orders to add to Schedule 1.

Applying Significant New Activity provisions

View the Significant New Activity Publications under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. Orders are subject to potential amendments under the Significant New Activity (SNAc) Review.

For additional guidance on submitting information required as part of SNAc notifications, please see the Guidelines for the Notification and Testing of New Substances: Chemicals and Polymers.

Rescinding the requirements under the Significant New Activity provisions

In October 2016, the requirements under the SNAc provisions for Solvent Yellow 18 (CAS RN 6407-78-9) and Pigment Yellow 60 (CAS RN 6407-74-5) were rescinded. Solvent Yellow 18 and Pigment Yellow 60 were subject to the SNAc provisions as a result of the 2010 screening assessment of substances in this batch. Solvent Yellow 18 was later included in the Certain Azo Solvent Dyes Subgroup, and Pigment Yellow 60 was included in the Certain Monoazo Pigments Subgroup. The 2016 assessment of those subgroups concluded that Solvent Yellow 18 and Pigment Yellow 60 do not pose a risk to the environment or human health. Therefore, an order amending the DSL to rescind the requirements under the SNAc provisions for these substances was published in the Canada Gazette, Part II: Vol. 150, No. 21 - October 19, 2016.

Final screening assessments and risk management approaches

In March 2010, the final screening assessments for substances in this batch were released and the related notices were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 144, No. 10 - March 6, 2010.

The final screening assessments concluded that 3 substances in this batch meet one or more criteria in section 64 of CEPA 1999. The Government proposed to add these substances to Schedule 1 of the act. Proposed risk management approaches were also released on this date for the substances in this batch which met the criteria in section 64 of CEPA 1999.

Draft screening assessments and risk management scopes

New information was received from industry or interested stakeholders for each of the 14 substances in this batch. In September 2009, the draft screening assessments were released and the related notices were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 143, No. 36 - September 5, 2009. Risk management scopes were also released in conjunction with these publications.
