CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1999
Publication of final decision after screening assessment of four substances of the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group specified on the Domestic Substances List (paragraphs 68(b) and (c) or subsection 77(6) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999)
Whereas yeast extract and isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen identified in the annex below are substances identified under subsection 73(1) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999;
Whereas a summary of the screening assessment conducted on protein hydrolyzates and collagen hydrolyzates pursuant to paragraphs 68(b) and (c) of the Act and on yeast extract and isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen pursuant to section 74 of the Act is annexed hereby;
And whereas it is concluded that the substances do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of the Act,
Notice therefore is hereby given that the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health (the ministers) propose to take no further action at this time under section 77 of the Act for the two substances identified under subsection 73(1) of the Act.
Notice is further given that the ministers propose to take no further action on the remaining two substances at this time.

Summary of the screening assessment of the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group
Pursuant to section 68 or 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of four substances referred to collectively as the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group. The Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Numbers (CAS RNs),footnote 1 the Domestic Substances List (DSL) names and the common names of these substances are listed in the table below.
|CAS RN||DSL name||Common name|

|9015-54-7 table 14 note a table 14 note b||Protein hydrolyzates||N/A|
|92113-31-0 table 14 note a table 14 note b||Collagens, hydrolyzates||Collagen hydrolyzates|

Table 14 note(s)
Abbreviations: N/A, not available
The substances in the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group are derived from naturally occurring biological materials. The composition of the yeast extract, protein hydrolyzates, collagen hydrolyzates, and isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen varies depending on the source of the material and manufacturing conditions. Data on all four substances were obtained in response to a CEPA section 71 survey. Between 100 000 kg and 1 000 000 kg of yeast extract, between 10 000 kg and 100 000 kg of protein hydrolyzates, and 67 702 kg of collagen hydrolyzates were imported to Canada for the reporting year of 2011. For the same year, no import volumes were reported for isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen and no manufacture volumes were reported for any of the substances in the group in Canada above the reporting threshold of 100 kg. Reported uses include building or construction materials, food and beverage, nutritional product for animal feed, and personal care. More specifically, in Canada, substances in this group may be used in food as flavouring agents, for nutritional purposes in products such as protein supplements and infant formula, and in a number of products available to consumers, including cosmetics and natural health products. In addition, collagen hydrolyzates and yeast extract are formulants in pest control products.
The ecological risks of the substances in the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group were characterized using the ecological risk classification of organic substances (ERC), which is a risk-based approach that employs multiple metrics for both hazard and exposure, with weighted consideration of multiple lines of evidence for determining risk classification. Hazard profiles are based principally on metrics regarding mode of toxic action, chemical reactivity, food web–derived internal toxicity thresholds, bioavailability, and chemical and biological activity. Metrics considered in the exposure profiles include potential emission rate, overall persistence, and long-range transport potential. A risk matrix is used to assign a low, moderate or high level of potential concern for substances on the basis of their hazard and exposure profiles. Based on the outcome of the ERC analysis, substances in the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group are considered unlikely to be causing ecological harm.
Considering all available lines of evidence presented in this screening assessment, there is a low risk of harm to the environment from the four substances in the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group. It is concluded that yeast extract, protein hydrolyzates, collagen hydrolyzates and isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen do not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or (b) of CEPA as they are not 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 or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.
With respect to human health, the hazard profiles of a variety of protein hydrolyzates of both plant and animal origin, which are representative of the substance protein hydrolyzates in the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group, show that no adverse effects have been observed in laboratory studies at doses up to the limit dose of 1 000 mg/kg bw/day. Similarly, for yeast extract and collagen hydrolyzates, there were no adverse effects reported in several laboratory studies. For isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen, based on information on its individual reaction components isostearic acid and collagen hydrolyzates, and on other structurally similar amino acid alkyl amides, this substance is not expected to be associated with adverse health effects. Therefore, in consideration of the available toxicological information on a representative set of protein hydrolyzates (including those derived from yeast and collagen) and substances related to isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen, the substances in the Protein Derivatives and Yeast Extract Group are considered to be of low hazard potential and therefore the risk to human health is considered to be low.
Considering all the information presented in this screening assessment, it is concluded that yeast extract, protein hydrolyzates, collagen hydrolyzates and isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen do not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA, as they are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.
It is therefore concluded that yeast extract, protein hydrolyzates, collagen hydrolyzates and isostearoyl hydrolyzed collagen do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.
The screening assessment for these substances is available on the Canada.ca (Chemical substances) website.
