NOTICE REQUIRING THE PREPARATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF POLLUTION PREVENTION PLANS IN RESPECT OF CYCLOTETRASILOXANE, OCTAMETHYL-
(SILOXANE D4) IN INDUSTRIAL EFFLUENTS

 1. Definitions

The definitions in this section apply to this Notice.

“Act” means the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).

“Calendar year” refers to a complete year beginning January 1 and ending December 31.

“D4” means Cyclotetrasiloxane, octamethyl-, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) (see footnote 1) Registry Number 556-67-2.

“Effluent” means process wastewater released at any final discharge point of the industrial facility.

“Final discharge point” is an identifiable discharge point beyond which the industrial facility owner or operator no longer exercises control over quality of the effluent.

“Minister” means the Minister of the Environment.

“Normal operating conditions” mean conditions representative of regular or typical operating conditions related to the manufacture or use of D4.

“Notice” means the Notice requiring the preparation and implementation of pollution prevention plans in respect of Cyclotetrasiloxane, octamethyl- (siloxane D4) in industrial effluents.

“Plan” means a pollution prevention plan.

 2. Persons required to prepare and implement a plan

(1) The Notice applies to any person who owns or operates an industrial facility that, during the calendar year 2011 or any time thereafter, meets all the following criteria:

  1. (a) Manufactures or uses D4, or a mixture containing D4, where the total quantity of D4 manufactured or used is equal to or greater than 100 kg per calendar year; and

  2. (b) As a result of the manufacture or use of D4 or a mixture containing D4, releases an effluent containing D4 at any final discharge point of the facility.

(2) The Notice applies to any person who is the successor or assign of the persons identified in subsection 2(1).

(3) Despite subsection 2(1), the Notice does not apply to any person who owns or operates a facility that

  1. (a) releases an effluent containing D4 in a concentration that is less than or equal to 17.3 µg/L at all final discharge points of the facility on the date the Notice is published and any time thereafter; or

  2. (b) uses D4 exclusively as contained in a mixture in a concentration of less than 1% or in any solid material, including rubber, wiring insulation and seals for automobiles.

 3. Activities in relation to which the plan is to be prepared

The Minister requires all persons identified in section 2 of the Notice to prepare and implement a plan in relation to the release of D4 in effluents through

  1. (a) the manufacture of D4; or

  2. (b) the use of D4 or a mixture that contains D4.

 4. Factors to consider in preparing the plan

The Minister requires all persons identified in section 2 of the Notice to consider the following factors when preparing their plan:

(1) D4 was declared toxic under paragraph 64(a) of the Act and has been added to Schedule 1 of the Act. According to the final Screening Assessment Report, D4 is entering or may be entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity. The final Screening Assessment Report also concluded that D4 meets the criterion for persistence as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations.

(2) The reduction target for a person identified in section 2 is to achieve and maintain either

  1. (a) a total D4 concentration in effluent at final discharge point(s) of the facility, through methods other than dilution, that is less than or equal to 17.3 μg/L; or

  2. (b) a total quantity of D4 released in industrial effluent at final discharge point(s) of the facility that is less than or equal to 3 kg/year.

(3) Sampling and analysis should be completed as described below:

  1. (a) The samples should be representative of the highest expected concentration of D4 at the final discharge point(s) resulting from normal operating conditions;

  2. (b) Samples should be collected and analyzed at a minimum of four times per year at each final discharge point; and

  3. (c) Analysis of samples should be performed in accordance with generally accepted standards of good scientific practice at the time of the analysis and by a laboratory that is accredited by a Canadian accrediting body under the International Organization for Standardization standard ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 titled General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories, as amended from time to time. Analysis of samples can also be performed by a laboratory that is not accredited but that uses an analytical method that meets the minimum following criteria:

    1. (i) Method Detection Limit: 2 μg/L
    2. (ii) Accuracy: 30%
    3. (iii) Precision: 30%

(4) In preparing a plan, a person subject to the Notice is to give priority to pollution prevention activities. “Pollution prevention” (P2), as defined in section 3 of the Act, means “the use of processes, practices, materials, products, substances or energy that avoid or minimize the creation of pollutants and waste and reduce the overall risk to the environment or human health.”

(5) The use of alternatives to D4 should be considered to reduce or minimize environmental and human health risks.

(6) Additional documents that should be kept with the plan:

  1. (a) a description and the location (maps) of all final discharge points; and

  2. (b) a description of the factors (e.g. type of technology, human factor, accidental releases, type of manufacturing, daily use) that could increase the quantity or concentration of the substance in the facility’s effluent.

(7) The implementation of the plan should include one year of monitoring which involves sampling and analysis at the final discharge point(s) after the reduction target set out in subsection 4(2) is achieved. Sampling and analysis should be conducted as specified in subsection 4(3).

(8) The Minister will measure the performance of the Notice, throughout the preparation and implementation periods, in order to determine its effectiveness in meeting the risk management objective and achieving the reduction target set out in subsection 4(2) of the Notice. This monitoring will be one of the elements considered by the Minister in order to determine whether additional measures, including regulations, may be required.

 5. Period within which the plan is to be prepared

(1) For a person subject to the Notice on the date of publication in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, the Minister requires that the plan be prepared and implementation initiated no later than June 1, 2013.
