Date Activity
April 27, 2019 Publication of the final screening assessment. The related notice was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 153, No. 17

Nine other substances were identified as being part of the Fatty Amides Group at the outset of the third phase of the CMP. Five of these substances (CAS RNs 68478-81-9, 71820-35-4, CDSL 11053-1, CDSL 11555-8 and CDSL 11557-1) were subsequently determined to be of low concern to both human health and the environment, through other approaches. Conclusions for these 5 substances are provided in the Screening Assessment for the Rapid Screening of Substances with Limited General Population Exposure.  The remaining 4 other substances in this group (CAS RNs 120-40-1, 142-78-9, 68153-35-5 and 68603-42-9) were placed into other substance groups, to which they are more appropriately suited based on scientific considerations. Conclusions for 3 substances (CAS RNs 120-40-1, 142-78-9 and 68603-42-9) will be provided in the upcoming Alkanolamines and Fatty Alkanolamides Group assessment, while the proposed conclusion for 1 substance (CAS RN 68153-35-5) will be provided in a future screening assessment.
