ARCHIVED - Final Integrated Framework for the Health-related Components of Categorization of the Domestic Substances List under CEPA 1999

The Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) requires categorization of the approximately 23,000 substances on the Domestic Substances List (DSL) prior to a legally mandated deadline of September 14, 2006. The Final Integrated Framework for the Health-Related Components of Categorization of the Domestic Substances List under CEPA 1999 outlines an integrated approach to categorization of substances on the DSL with respect to both the "greatest potential for exposure" (GPE) and "inherently toxic" to humans (IThuman). The categorization of the DSL was completed within the mandated timelines. For the results, see the Categorization of Substances on the Domestic Substances List. The document is composed of seven parts:

Part A
Introduction & Context, which provides background information and context on development of the integrated framework

Part B
Integrated Framework, which describes the final integrated framework and its operationalization

Part C
Draft Maximal List, which provides information on substances being considered further for DSL categorization and screening assessment

Part D
Tools Developed for the Integrated Framework, which provides information on the tools developed for exposure assessment and hazard identification

Part E
Refinement of the Draft Maximal List on the basis of several substances being already assessed or managed under CEPA or CEPA 1999.

Part F
Refinement of the draft maximal list of health priorities, taking into consideration the approaches outlined briefly in Part E

Part G
Documentation, which outlines additional information relevant to the final integrated framework
