Final screening assessment and risk management approach

Coal tars and their distillates

In June 2021, the Final Screening Assessment for Coal Tars and their Distillates was released and the related notice was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 155, No. 26 – June 26, 2021. The conclusions of the assessment are considered to cover all coal tars and their distillates, including but not limited to the 6 substances specifically identified in the assessment.

The final screening assessment concluded that coal tars and their distillates meet 1 or more criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999; therefore, the Government is proposing to add these substances to Schedule 1 of the Act. A proposed risk management approach was also released on this date for a 60-day public comment period.

In June 2016, the Draft Screening Assessment for Coal tars and their Distillates was released and the related notice was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I: Vol. 150, No. 24 - June 11, 2016. A risk management scope was also released in conjunction with this publication. There was a 60-day public comment period associated with these publications.
