Whereas the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have assessed information in respect of the substance Aliphatic alkyl diester of succinic acid;

Whereas the substance is not on the Domestic Substances List;

And whereas the Ministers suspect that a significant new activity in relation to the substance may result in the substance becoming toxic under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999,

JIM PRENTICE

ANNEX

Information Requirements

(Section 85 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999)

3. The above information will be assessed within 90 days after the day on which it is received by the Minister of the Environment.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This explanatory note is not part of the Significant New Activity Notice.)

A Significant New Activity Notice is a legal instrument issued by the Minister of the Environment pursuant to section 85 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. The Significant New Activity Notice sets out the appropriate information that must be provided to the Minister for assessment prior to the commencement of a new activity as described in the Notice.

Substances that are not listed on the Domestic Substances List can be manufactured or imported only by the person who has met the requirements set out in section 81 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. Under section 86 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, in circumstances where a Significant New Activity Notice is issued for a new substance, it is the responsibility of every person who transfers the physical possession or control of the substance to notify all persons to whom the possession or control is transferred of the obligation to comply with the Significant New Activity Notice and of the obligation to notify the Minister of the Environment of any new activity and all other information as described in the Notice. It is the responsibility of the users of the substance to be aware of and comply with the Significant New Activity Notice and to submit a Significant New Activity notification to the Minister prior to the commencement of a significant new activity associated with the substance. However, as mentioned in subsection 81(6) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, a Significant New Activity notification is not required when the proposed new activity is regulated under an act or regulations listed on Schedule 2 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.

A Significant New Activity Notice does not constitute an endorsement from Environment Canada of the substance to which it relates, or an exemption from any other laws or regulations that are in force in Canada and that may apply to this substance or activities involving the substance.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

FOOD AND DRUGS ACT

Food and Drug Regulations — Amendments

Interim Marketing Authorization

Provision currently exists in the Food and Drug Regulations for the use of the enzyme lipase derived from various micro-organisms in the production of various food products, including bread and flour, at levels of use consistent with good manufacturing practices. The permitted sources of the lipase enzyme include the micro-organisms Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus oryzae, Mucor miehei, Penicillium camembertii, Rhizopus niveus and Rhizopus oryzae.

Health Canada has received a submission to permit the use of the phospholipase A2 enzyme derived from a genetically modified Aspergillus niger strain, Aspergillus niger (PLA-54) that carries the gene from another strain of Aspergillus niger coding for this enzyme. Phospholipase enzymes are classified under the broad class of lipase enzymes. This phospholipase A2 enzyme will be used in the production of bread, flour, whole wheat flour, unstandardized bakery products, unstandardized whole egg, unstandardized egg yolk and modified lecithin, at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice. Evaluation of the available data supports the safety and effectiveness of this phospholipase A2 derived from the genetically modified Aspergillus niger (PLA-54).

The use of this phospholipase A2 derived from this micro-organism will benefit the consumer by increasing the availability of quality food products. It will also benefit industry through more efficient and improved manufacturing conditions.

Therefore, it is the intention of Health Canada to recommend that the Food and Drug Regulations be amended to permit the use of this phospholipase A2 enzyme derived from Aspergillus niger (PLA-54) in the production of bread, flour, whole wheat flour, unstandardized bakery products, unstandardized whole egg, unstandardized egg yolk and modified lecithin, at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice.

As a means to improve the responsiveness of the regulatory system, an Interim Marketing Authorization is being issued to permit the immediate use of this phospholipase A2 enzyme, as indicated above, while the regulatory process is undertaken to amend the Regulations. The standardized foods described above are exempted from the application of sections 6 and 6.1 of the Food and Drugs Act, paragraphs B.01.042(a) and (c) and B.13.021(h), subparagraphs B.13.001(e)(iii) and B.13.005(d)(iii) and section B.16.007 of the Food and Drug Regulations. The unstandardized foods listed above are exempted from paragraph B.01.043(a) and section B.16.007 of the same Regulations.

The proposed regulatory amendments would be enabling measures to allow the sale of the foods mentioned above that have been manufactured through the use of the phospholipase A2 enzyme derived from Aspergillus niger (PLA-54). The amendments are supported by the safety assessment and would have low impact on the economy and on the environment. Consequently, the regulatory amendments may proceed directly to final approval and publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II.

Interested persons may make representations, with respect to Health Canada’s intention to amend the Regulations, within 75 days after the date of publication of this notice. All such representations must cite the Canada Gazette, Part I, and the date of publication of this notice, and be addressed to the contact person identified below.
