SCHEDULE 1

Plan for the assessment and management of certain substances on the Domestic Substances List and list of Batch 10 Challenge substances

1. Background

The Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) required that the Government review some 23 000 Domestic Substances List (DSL) substances to determine whether they have certain characteristics which indicate that the Government should assess the risks that may be associated with their continued use in Canada. The Government completed this exercise — called categorization — in September 2006. Categorization provided a new information baseline on all identified substances, one that will allow the Government of Canada to work with its partners to achieve tangible results that protect Canadians and the environment.

The Ministers of the Environment and of Health (the Ministers) published on December 9, 2006, in the Canada Gazette, Part I, Vol. 140, No. 49, the Notice of intent to develop and implement measures to assess and manage the risks posed by certain substances to the health of Canadians and their environment. The notice indicated that approximately 200 of the 4 300 chemical substances identified by the categorization exercise are high priorities for action under the initiative known as the Challenge because

  • the Ministers consider that evidence that a substance is both persistent and bioaccumulative (according to the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations), when combined with evidence of toxicity and release into the environment, can lead to harmful ecological impacts. This indicates that the substance meets the criterion in paragraph 64(a) of CEPA 1999;
  • the Ministers consider that where there is evidence that a substance for which the critical health effect is assumed to have no threshold — i.e. a mutagenic carcinogen — it is assumed that there is a probability of harm to human health at any level of exposure, and therefore indicates that the substance meets the criterion in paragraph 64(c) of CEPA 1999;
  • the Ministers consider that evidence that a substance exhibits carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, developmental toxicity, or reproductive toxicity, and a high likelihood of exposure to individuals in Canada, indicates that the substance may meet the criterion in paragraph 64(c) of CEPA 1999; and
  • these substances are believed to be in commerce or of commercial interest in Canada.

This notice also outlines the measures the Ministers intend to take regarding these substances to further protect the health of Canadians and the environment. These measures will

  • improve, where possible, persistence and/or bioaccumulation information;
  • identify industrial best practices in order to set benchmarks for risk management, product stewardship, and virtual elimination; and
  • collect information on environmental release, exposure, substance and/or product use.

In so doing, the Ministers will make timely risk management interventions that minimize the risk of serious or irreversible harm associated with the above substances.

Pursuant to paragraph 74(a) of the Act, the Ministers are required to conduct a screening assessment of the substances categorized under subsection 73(1) to determine if they meet the criteria established in section 64 of the Act.

The Ministers have documented for each of the 12 Batch 10 Challenge substances the categorization information in their possession and have prepared documentation which (a) summarizes the scientific information and any relevant uncertainties, (b) specifies the information necessary for improved decision-making and, where appropriate, requires submission of this data using section 71, and (c) outlines how this information will be used in decisions.

Information deemed necessary for improved decision-making is being gathered via section 71 of CEPA 1999. Additional information regarding the scientific properties of these substances, or best management practices associated with the use of these substances that is deemed beneficial by interested stakeholders, will be collected as detailed in the technical documentation available via the Government of Canada Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca). The absence of new information will not preclude the Ministers from issuing a decision that safeguards human health and the environment.

2. Timelines

If new information for the 12 substances listed below is not received by December 17, 2009, then by no later than March 27, 2010, the Ministers will open a 60-day public comment period under subsection 77(1) on (a) the draft screening assessment and (b) the proposal to pursue one of the measures as specified under subsection 77(2).

If new information is received by December 17, 2009, that information will be considered and, by no later than June 26, 2010, the Ministers will open a 60-day public comment period under subsection 77(1) on (a) the draft screening assessment and (b) their proposal to pursue one of the measures as specified under subsection 77(2) and, where applicable, the implementation of virtual elimination under subsection 65(3) as specified under subsection 77(2).

Discussions with stakeholders on the development of the risk management approach, where applicable, will be initiated at the time of the subsection 77(1) publication. The Ministers will publish their final recommendation under subsection 77(6) by no later than September 25, 2010, where no new information was received during this call for information, and by no later than December 25, 2010, where new information was received during this call for information. A risk management approach, where applicable, will be available at that time outlining actions which the Government proposes to take to protect Canadians and their environment from risks associated with these substances.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

The Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) required the Minister of Health and the Minister of the Environment to categorize the approximately 23 000 substances on the Domestic Substances List. Based on the information obtained through the categorization process, a number of substances have been identified by the Ministers as high priorities for action. This includes substances

  • that were found to meet all of the ecological categorization criteria, including persistence, bioaccumulation potential and inherent toxicity to aquatic organisms, and that are known to be in commerce, or of commercial interest, in Canada; and/or
  • that were found either to meet the categorization criteria for greatest potential for exposure or to present an intermediate potential for exposure, and were identified as posing a high hazard to human health based on available evidence on carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, developmental toxicity or reproductive toxicity.

The Challenge initiative is meant to engage stakeholders to provide new information that could improve decision-making with respect to 200 substances identified as high priorities for action.

In accordance with section 76.1 of CEPA 1999, and in the absence of additional relevant information as a result of this Challenge, the Ministers are predisposed to conclude, through a screening assessment, that a substance satisfies the definition of toxic under section 64 of CEPA 1999 in that it “may enter 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 may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.” As such, the Ministers may then recommend to the Governor in Council that this substance be added to the List of Toxic Substances in Schedule 1 of CEPA 1999, with the intent of initiating the development of risk management measures taking into account socio-economic considerations. The measures will be subject to review in light of new scientific information, including monitoring and ongoing assessment activities.

The 200 Challenge substances are in commerce or believed to be in commerce in Canada. Should no information be forthcoming through this Challenge to confirm that a substance is in commerce in Canada, the Ministers may conclude, through a screening assessment, that this substance is not currently in commerce in Canada and that as such it may not satisfy the definition of toxic under section 64 of CEPA 1999. However, given the hazardous properties of these substances, there is concern that new activities for the substances that have not been identified or assessed under CEPA 1999 could lead to the substances meeting the criteria set out in section 64 of the Act. It will be recommended that such substances be subject to the Significant New Activity provisions specified under subsection 81(3) of the Act, to ensure that any new manufacture, import or use of these substances in quantities greater than 100 kg/year is notified, and that ecological and human health risk assessments are conducted as specified in section 83 of the Act prior to the substances being introduced into Canada.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the notice.)

The Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health (the Ministers) have published on December 9, 2006, in the Canada Gazette, Part I, the Notice of intent to develop and implement measures to assess and manage the risks posed by certain substances to the health of Canadians and their environment. The Ministers will implement a series of measures regarding certain substances to further protect the health of individuals in Canada and the environment from the potential effects of exposure to these substances. These measures apply to the substances identified by categorization of the Domestic Substances List as being

(a) persistent, bioaccumulative and inherently toxic to the environment and that are known to be in commerce in Canada; and/or

(b) a high hazard to humans and as having a high likelihood of exposure to individuals in Canada.

The Ministers will implement a series of measures regarding these substances to further protect the health of individuals in Canada and the environment from the potential effects associated with exposure to these substances. These measures will

  • improve, where possible, persistence and/or bioaccumulation information;
  • identify industrial best practices in order to set benchmarks for risk management, product stewardship and virtual elimination; and

RADIOCOMMUNICATION ACT

Notice No. DGTP-005-09 — Spectrum Utilization Policy, Technical and Licensing Requirements for Wireless Broadband Services (WBS) in the Band 3650-3700 MHz (SP 3650 MHz)

Intent

The purpose of this notice is to announce the release of the above-mentioned spectrum document to accommodate WBS in the band 3650-3700 MHz.

Background

In September 2003, Industry Canada released the Policy and Licensing Procedures for the Auction of Spectrum Licences in the 2300 MHz and 3500 MHz Bands (DGRB-003-03) and later auctioned 175 MHz in the band 3475-3650 MHz. At that time, the Department indicated that there was a strong possibility that the United States would deploy licence-exempt devices in the band 3650-3700 MHz.

In October 2004, the Department published its Revisions to Spectrum Utilization Policies in the 3-30 GHz Frequency Range and Further Consultation (DGTP-008-04). In this paper, the Department requested comments on whether to make the band 3650-3700 MHz available for licence-exempt applications. Comments were also sought on the types of systems and services that could be implemented in the band and, noting the availability of licensed spectrum in the adjacent bands, whether there was a requirement to continue the designation for licensed services.

In August 2006, the Department released the Proposed Spectrum Utilization Policy, Technical and Licensing Requirements for Wireless Broadband Services (WBS) in the Band 36503700 MHz (DGTP-006-06). The Department added a primary mobile allocation in the band and designated its use for WBS. This consultation proposed policy and technical and licensing considerations to accommodate new WBS in the band 36503700 MHz. Subsequently, the Department received comments in support of this allocation.

Discussion

Comments received in response to the 2006 consultation generally supported the Department’s proposals on use, applications, channelling plans, technical requirements and eligibility. As well, comments received generally supported technical harmonization with the United States as being in the best interest of Canada.

Details of the spectrum policy, and eligibility, technical and licensing provisions, to allow WBS in the band 3650-3700 MHz, are specified in SP 3650 MHz.
