|Aliphatic Diesters Group
|Diisodecyl adipate (DIDA)
|Hexanedioic acid, diisodecyl ester
|Does not meet
|Significant New Activity
While exposure of the general population to DIDA is not of concern at current levels, this substance is considered to have a health effect of concern due to its potential to cause developmental toxicity. Therefore, there may be a concern for human health if exposures were to increase. The proposed follow-up activity for DIDA is to apply the Significant New Activity (SNAc) provisions of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).

One other substance, nonanedioic acid, bis(2-ethylhexyl) ester (CAS RN 103-24-2), was identified as being part of the Aliphatic Diesters Group at the outset of the third phase of the CMP. This substance was subsequently determined to be of low concern to both human health and the environment through another approach. Conclusions for this substance are provided in the Screening Assessment for Substances Identified as Being of Low Concern using the Ecological Risk Classification of Organic Substances and the Threshold of Toxicological Concern (TTC)-based Approach for Certain Substances.
