Flame Retardants Group
These substances were identified for action under the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP). The screening assessment focuses on 10 substances referred to collectively under the CMP as the Flame Retardants Group.

|November 2023||Anticipated publication of the final screening assessment and proposed risk management approach.|
|June 24, 2023||Publication in Canada Gazette, Part I, of a notice under section 71 of CEPA 1999.|
|November 6, 2021||Publication and start of 60-day public comment period on the Draft Screening Assessment for the Flame Retardants Group (including follow-up activities for TBOEP and TDBDPB) and the Risk Management Scope for TPHP, BPDP, BDMEPPP, IDDP, IPPP and TEP. The related notice was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 155, No. 45.|
Section 71 CMP 2023
In June 2023, a notice was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 157, No. 25 – June 24, 2023 under section 71 of CEPA 1999. This notice applies to IPPP (CAS RN 68937-41-7) and TEP (CAS RN 78-40-0). More information is available on the Information gathering with respect to certain substances under the Chemicals Management Plan web page.
Three other substances were identified as being a part of the Flame Retardants 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 a separate approach. The conclusions for CAS RNs 26446-73-1, 68527-01-5 and 68527-02-6 are provided in the Final Screening Assessment for the Rapid Screening of Substances with Limited General Population Exposure.
