EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This explanatory note is not part of the Notice of Intent.)

Description

The Notice of Intent (NOI) is an opportunity for the public to comment on the proposed amendments to the Domestic Substances List (DSL) to vary the Significant New Activity (SNAc) requirements for 6 substances and to apply the SNAc provisions to 19 substances, pursuant to subsection 87(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA) (see footnote f)

In January 2015, the Department of the Environment and the Department of Health (the departments) published a document outlining an initiative to review all orders and notices that were made between 2001 and 2014 (see footnote g) to impose SNAc requirements. The purpose of the review is to ensure that SNAc orders and notices are consistent with current information, policies and approaches. Resulting changes to SNAc orders and notices are expected to provide greater clarity of scope and improved ease of compliance by industry, while protecting Canadians and their environment.

Within 60 days of publication of the NOI, any person may submit comments to the Minister of the Environment. The comments received will be taken into consideration during the development of the Order amending the DSL to vary the SNAc provisions for 6 substances and to apply the SNAc provisions to 19 substances.

The DSL amendments are not in force until the Order is adopted by the Minister pursuant to subsection 87(3) of CEPA. The Order must be published in the Canada Gazette, Part II. Any current SNAc requirements remain in effect until such time as a final Order comes into force.

With the exception of methoxychlor, the substances in this NOI are currently used as pest control products and are subject to provisions under the Pest Control Products Act (PCPA). (see footnote h) Pesticidal uses of methoxychlor have been discontinued in Canada since 2005, and the substance is no longer registered under the PCPA. Any future pesticidal uses of methoxychlor would be subject to the PCPA and require pre-market assessment. Information-gathering methods for any non-pesticide applications of these substances other than the use of SNAc provisions were considered, including the addition of the substances to the list of substances subject to the DSL Inventory Update and reporting to the National Pollutant Release Inventory. These options are not considered appropriate given that information would only be obtained after use and/or releases to the environment had occurred, potentially leading to environmental or human health exposure. In addition, the reporting thresholds for both of these options would typically be greater than the level at which environmental or human health effects would be likely to occur.

Applicability of the proposed Order

At this time, it is proposed that the Order amending the DSL require any person (individual or corporation) engaging in a significant new activity in relation to any of the 25 substances listed in Table 1 to submit a Significant New Activity Notification (SNAN) containing all of the information prescribed in the Order at least 90 days prior to the import, manufacture or use of the substance for the significant new activity.

Table 1: List of substances that would be subject to the proposed Order

Part A: Substances for which Significant New Activity (SNAc) provisions will be varied

Part B: Substances for which Significant New Activity (SNAc) provisions are proposed

In order to address environmental and/or human health concerns, the Order would target the use of the substances in Table 1, at an amount greater than 100 kg in a calendar year in any activity, including the use of the substance as a research and development substance, as a site-limited intermediate substance, or as an export-only substance.

Activities not subject to the proposed Order

The Order amending the DSL would not apply to uses of the substances that are regulated under the PCPA or any Act of Parliament also listed in Schedule 2 of CEPA, including the Fertilizers Act and the Feeds Act. For example, for the substance with Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number 8001-58-9 in Part B of Table 1 (creosote), the Order would not apply to activities involving its production from coal tar when the substance is ultimately used in a pest control product regulated under the PCPA.

The proposed Order would also not apply to transient reaction intermediates, impurities, contaminants, or partially unreacted intermediates, or, in some circumstances, to items such as wastes, mixtures or manufactured items. However, it should be noted that individual components of a mixture may be notifiable under the Order. See subsection 81(6) and section 3 of CEPA, and section 3 of the Guidelines for the Notification and Testing of New Substances: Chemicals and Polymers for additional information. (see footnote i)

Information to be submitted

The proposed Order sets out requirements for information that would need to be provided to the Minister 90 days before the day on which the substances are imported, manufactured or used for a significant new activity. The departments will use the information submitted in the SNAN to conduct human health and environmental assessments within 90 days after the complete information is received.

The information requirements in the proposed Order relate to general information in respect of the substances, details surrounding their use, and exposure information. Some of the proposed information requirements are set out in the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers).

Additional guidance on preparing a SNAN can be found in section 4 of the Guidelines for the Notification and Testing of New Substances: Chemicals and Polymers.

Compliance

When assessing whether or not a substance is subject to SNAc provisions, (see footnote j) a person is expected to make use of information in their possession or to which they ought to have access. The phrase “to which they ought to have access” means information in any of the notifier’s offices worldwide or other locations where the notifier can reasonably have access to the information. For example, manufacturers are expected to have access to their formulations, while importers or users of a substance, mixture, or product are expected to have access to import records, usage information and the relevant Safety Data Sheets (SDSs). (see footnote k)

Although an SDS is an important source of information on the composition of a purchased product, it should be noted that the goal of the SDS is to protect the health of workers in the workplace from specific hazards of chemical products. Therefore, an SDS may not list all product ingredients that may be subject to an order due to public health or environmental concerns. Any person requiring more detailed information on product composition is encouraged to contact their supplier.

If any information becomes available that reasonably supports the conclusion that substances specified in the proposed Order are toxic or capable of becoming toxic, the person who is in possession of the information and is involved in activities with the substances is obligated, under section 70 of CEPA, to provide that information to the Minister without delay.

A company can submit a SNAN on behalf of its clients. For example, in cases where a person takes possession and control of a substance from another person, they may not be required to submit a SNAN, under certain conditions, if their activities were covered by the original SNAN. The Substances Management Advisory Note titled “Clarification in relation to the submission of Significant New Activity Notifications in application of the Canadian Environ-mental Protection Act, 1999” provides more detail on this subject. (see footnote l)

Any person who transfers the physical possession or control of a substance subject to the Order should notify all persons to whom the physical possession or control is transferred of the obligation to comply with the Order, including the obligation to notify the Minister of any significant new activity and to provide all the required information outlined above.

A pre-notification consultation (PNC) is recommended for notifiers who wish to consult during the planning or preparation of their SNAN to discuss any questions or concerns they have about the prescribed information and test plans.

Where a person has questions concerning their obligations to comply with a notice or order, believes they may be out of compliance, or would like to request a PNC, they are encouraged to discuss their particular circumstances with the program by contacting the Substances Management Information Line. (see footnote m)

CEPA is enforced in accordance with the publicly available Compliance and Enforcement Policy. (see footnote n) In instances of non-compliance, consideration is given to factors such as the nature of the alleged violation, potential harm, intent, and history of compliance.
