Background

Combining the results from both approaches, 75 substances were identified to be of low concern for human health and ecological risk. One substance (CAS RN 118-96-7) was later found to be associated with an international classification for carcinogenicity based on empirical data with positive results, thereby excluding it from the TTC-based approach. This substance is being assessed in the Rapid Screening Approach of Substances with Limited General Population Exposure. Also, as a result of new information on uses and volumes submitted pursuant to a Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 section 71 notice, 2 additional substances (CAS RNs 4979-32-2 and 94270-86-7) that were included in the draft of this screening assessment have been removed for further assessment due to potential human health concerns.
