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.

Varying the requirements under the Significant New Activity provisions

In July 2019, a notice of intent to amend the DSL to vary the requirements under the SNAc provisions for 4 substances in this batch (CAS RNs 475-71-8, 1326-05-2, 14295-43-3 and 58161-93-6) was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 153, No. 30 - July 27, 2019 for a 60-day public comment period.

Final screening assessments and risk management approaches

In September 2010, the final screening assessments for substances in this batch were released in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 144, No. 38 - September 18, 2010.

The final screening assessments concluded that 4 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 17 substances in this batch. In March 2010, the draft screening assessments were released and the related notices were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 144, No. 12 - March 20, 2010. Risk management scopes were also released in conjunction with these publications.
