|June 2020||Anticipated publication of the final screening assessment.|
|June 22, 2019||Publication and start of 60-day public comment period on the draft screening assessment. The related notice was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 153, No. 25.|
Five other substances were identified as being a part of the Nitriles Group at the outset of the third phase of the CMP. These substances were subsequently determined to be of low concern to both human health and the environment, through other approaches. Conclusions for CAS RNs 78-67-1, 13472-08-7, 61790-28-1, 61790-29-2, 125328-64-5 are provided in the Screening Assessment for Substances Identified as Being of Low Concern on the basis of the Ecological Risk Classification of Organic Substances and the Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC)-based Approach for Certain Substances.
