SCHEDULE 1

Plan for the assessment and management of certain substances on the Domestic Substances List and list of Batch 12 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 through 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 on the DSL that are identified to be substances described in the criteria set forth in subsection 73(1) to determine whether the substances meet one or more of the criteria established in section 64 of the Act.

The Ministers have, for each of the 16 substances in Batch 12 of the Challenge, compiled all information in their possession relevant to categorization 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 considered necessary for improved decision making is being gathered through the means provided under 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 considered beneficial by interested stakeholders, will also 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 16 substances listed below is not received by June 23, 2010, then, by no later than October 2, 2010, the Ministers will open a 60-day public comment period with respect to all substances assessed under section 74 on (a) the draft screening assessment, and (b) the proposal to pursue one of the measures, as described under subsection 77(2).

If new information is received by June 23, 2010, that information will be considered and, by no later than January 8, 2011, the Ministers will open a 60-day public comment period with respect to all substances assessed under section 74 on (a) the draft screening assessment and (b) their proposal to pursue one of the measures as described under subsection 77(2) and, where applicable, the implementation of virtual elimination under subsection 65(3).

Discussions with stakeholders on the development of the risk management approach, where applicable, will be initiated at the time of the publication of the draft screening assessment. The Ministers will publish their final recommendations under subsection 77(6) by no later than April 9, 2011, where no new information was received during this call for information, and by no later than July 16, 2011, 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 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 or investigation, that the substance is not currently in commerce in Canada and that, as such, it may not satisfy the criteria 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.

FOOD AND DRUGS ACT

Notice of Intent — Food and Drug Regulations — Project No. 1577 — Schedule F

The purpose of this Notice of Intent (NOI) is to provide an opportunity for comment on the proposal to amend the current listings in Parts I and II of Schedule F to the Food and Drug Regulations by removing the listings for four medicinal ingredients, thus allowing them to have non-prescription status.

Schedule F is a list of medicinal ingredients, the sale of which is controlled under sections C.01.041 to C.01.049 of the Food and Drug Regulations. Part I of Schedule F lists ingredients that require a prescription for human use and for veterinary use. Part II of Schedule F lists ingredients that require a prescription for human use, but do not require a prescription for veterinary use if so labelled or if in a form unsuitable for human use.

Since the coming into force of the Natural Health Products Regulations in 2004, all naturally sourced substances meeting the definition of a natural health product are governed by these Regulations. However, products containing substances listed in Schedule F to the Food and Drug Regulations are explicitly excluded from the Natural Health Products Regulations.

Health Canada has undertaken a review of the naturally sourced medicinal ingredients listed in Schedule F. As part of this undertaking, the Department’s Drug Schedule Status Committee (“the Committee”) has reviewed science assessments for 11 naturally sourced medicinal ingredients and has recommended that these medicinal ingredients could be regulated (in whole or in part) as non-prescription natural health products under the Natural Health Products Regulations. The Committee recommends prescription status or exemption from prescription status for medicinal ingredients on the basis of established and publicly available criteria. These criteria include, but are not limited to, concerns related to toxicity, pharmacological properties and therapeutic uses of the ingredients. Four of these eleven medicinal ingredients are presented in this project.

Health Canada is proposing that the following four medicinal ingredients be removed from Schedule F to the Food and Drug Regulations as none of the factors for listing in Schedule F were found to apply. This would mean that products containing these medicinal ingredients would not require a prescription to be sold in Canada and that manufacturers could apply for market authorization for these medicinal ingredients as natural health products pursuant to the Natural Health Product Regulations.

Description of the medicinal ingredients:

Apiol, oil of — Apiol oil is found in the essential oils of parsley seed, dill seed, and, to a lesser extent, in fennel seed, sassafras root bark and other plant species. Apiol oil is currently regulated as a prescription drug although there are presently no known marketed prescription products that contain apiol oil. A review of the available scientific literature indicates that there is a wide margin of safety between the therapeutic and toxic doses of apiol oil. It has toxic effects in humans exposed to doses of approximately 1 g/day; however, the common presence of apiol oil in foods indicates a lack of toxicity at doses likely to be found in herbal medicines. No health hazards or side effects are known in conjunction with appropriate therapeutic dosages of parsley seed, whose medicinal properties are largely attributed to the apiol volatile oil content, and there are no reports of serious health risks associated with normal dietary ingestion or recommended medicinal use of parsley seed.

Centella asiatica extract and active principles thereof — Centella asiatica extract is derived from a small plant commonly known as gotukola. Centella asiatica extract is a concentrated preparation. An active principle is the part of the drug upon which the therapeutic action of the drug depends. Centella asiatica extract and active principles thereof have prescription status in Canada although there are presently no known marketed prescription products that contain Centella asiatica extract and active principles thereof. Centella asiatica crude herb does not have prescription status and is regulated as a natural health product. It is also available as a vegetable in South Asian markets. A review of the available scientific literature indicates that there is a wide margin of safety between the therapeutic and toxic doses of Centella asiatica extract. Centella asiatica extract and active principles thereof pose a low risk of undesirable or severe side effects. There is a very low percentage of adverse reactions compared to its length and frequency of use both in food and medicine.

Deanol and its salts and derivatives — Deanol, also known as dimethylaminoethanol or DMAE, is a naturally sourced chemical found in salmon roe, shellfish and fish oils. Deanol and its salts and derivatives have prescription status in Canada although there are presently no known marketed prescription products containing deanol. Deanol is a precursor to choline, a chemical in the body used to make acetylcholine, a chemical that is found in the brain and other areas of the body. A review of the available scientific literature indicates that deanol does not have a narrow margin of safety between the therapeutic and toxic doses.

Theobromine and its salts — Theobromine is a naturally occurring chemical substance that is found in cocoa and chocolate and is also prepared synthetically for commercial purposes. Theobromine and its salts have prescription status in Canada although there are presently no known marketed prescription products that contain theobromine. Theobromine affects humans similarly to caffeine, but to a lesser degree. Toxicity from the use of theobromine is very rare and is only seen at very high doses in humans; therefore, it does not possess a high level of risk relative to expected benefits. As well, theobromine has no known severe side effects at normal therapeutic dosage levels. Due to theobromine’s low potency as a drug and the availability of more effective treatments, it is rarely used therapeutically anymore.

Alternatives

The alternative option would be to leave these four medicinal ingredients in Schedule F. As measured against the factors for listing drugs in Schedule F, it has been determined that maintaining the current listings in Schedule F for these four medicinal ingredients is not appropriate.

As well, any alternatives to the degree of regulatory control recommended in this amendment would need to be established through additional scientific information and clinical experience.

Benefits and costs

  • Public

The public may benefit by potentially having access to licensed natural health products that would otherwise have required a prescription because they contain trace amounts of Schedule F medicinal ingredients. Any potential safety concerns for products containing these non-prescription medicinal ingredients would be addressed during the premarket review process under the Natural Health Products Regulations, a review which determines whether the product meets the safety, efficacy, and quality requirements of the Regulations and which provides for risks to be mitigated through recommended conditions of use and risk information including cautions, warnings, contraindications or known adverse reactions associated with its use, as appropriate.

  • Manufacturers

Manufacturers may benefit by being provided an opportunity to apply for product licences for natural health products containing these ingredients.

There would be no immediate impact on manufacturers as there are currently no known prescription products containing these medicinal ingredients on the market in Canada.

  • Health insurance plans

There would be no change in costs to drug benefit plans as there are no known prescription drugs containing these medicinal ingredients on the market in Canada. Should natural health products containing these medicinal ingredients proposed for removal from Schedule F receive market authorization from Health Canada, there would be no anticipated additional costs to privately funded drug benefit plans since most do not cover the cost of natural health products.

  • Provincial health care services

There would be no change in costs to drug benefit plans as there are no known prescription drugs containing these medicinal ingredients on the market in Canada. Should natural health products containing these medicinal ingredients proposed for removal from Schedule F receive market authorization from Health Canada, there would be no anticipated additional costs to provincial drug benefit plans since most do not cover the cost of natural health products.

Compliance and enforcement

This amendment would not alter existing compliance mechanisms under the provisions of the Food and Drugs Act, the Food and Drug Regulations and the Natural Health Products Regulations enforced by the Health Products and Food Branch Inspectorate.

Consultation

The process for this consultation with stakeholders is described in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to streamline regulatory amendments to Schedule F, which came into effect on February 22, 2005. The MOU is posted on the Health Canada Web site.

This NOI is being sent by email to stakeholders and is also being posted on the Health Canada Web site and the “Consulting with Canadians” Web site.

Any comments regarding this proposed amendment should be sent within 75 days following the date of publication in the Canada Gazette, Part I. The policy analyst for this project, Carrie Harrison-Viau, may be contacted at the following address: Refer to Project No. 1577, Bureau of Policy, Science and International Programs, Therapeutic Products Directorate, Health Canada, Holland Cross, Tower B, 2nd Floor, 1600 Scott Street, Address Locator 3102C5, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9, 613-948-4623 (telephone), 613-941-6458 (fax), regaff-affreg@hc-sc.gc.ca (email).

Final approval

In accordance with the MOU process, it is anticipated that this amendment will proceed directly from this consultation to consideration for final approval by the Governor in Council, approximately six to eight months from the publication of this NOI in the Canada Gazette, Part I. If the amendment is approved by the Governor in Council, publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II, would follow. The amendment would come into force on the date of registration.

Notice of Intent — Food and Drug Regulations — Project No. 1651 — Schedule F

The purpose of this Notice of Intent (NOI) is to provide an opportunity for comment on the proposal to amend the current listings in Part I of Schedule F to the Food and Drug Regulations for four medicinal ingredients to retain prescription status for specific strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages while providing exemptions that would allow non-prescription status.

Schedule F is a list of medicinal ingredients, the sale of which is controlled under sections C.01.041 to C.01.049 of the Food and Drug Regulations. Part I of Schedule F lists ingredients that require a prescription for human use and for veterinary use. Part II of Schedule F lists ingredients that require a prescription for human use, but do not require a prescription for veterinary use if so labelled or if in a form unsuitable for human use.

Since the coming into force of the Natural Health Products Regulations in 2004, all naturally sourced substances meeting the definition of a natural health product are governed by these Regulations. However, products containing substances listed in Schedule F to the Food and Drug Regulations are explicitly excluded from the Natural Health Products Regulations.

The Committee recommends prescription status or exemption from prescription status for medicinal ingredients on the basis of established and publicly available criteria. These criteria include, but are not limited to, concerns related to toxicity, pharmacological properties and therapeutic uses of the ingredients. Four of these eleven medicinal ingredients are presented in this project.

This proposed amendment would allow manufacturers to apply for market authorization for products containing the proposed exempted strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages of the following four medicinal ingredients as natural health products pursuant to the Natural Health Products Regulations.

Description of the medicinal ingredients:

Dopamine and its salts — The current listing for dopamine and its salts would be revised to retain prescription status for injectable (parenteral) forms of dopamine and its salts. All other dosage forms and routes of administration at any strength and for any use would be exempt from prescription status.

Dopamine is inactive in the body when administered orally. Therefore, there are no oral drug products containing dopamine on the market in Canada. Revising the prescription status of dopamine would mitigate issues with the licensing of orally administered natural health products with ingredients that might naturally contain trace amounts of dopamine.

Dopamine is administered by intravenous injection to treat kidney failure, septic shock and acute heart failure resulting from a heart attack. It works by increasing blood pressure, heart rate and force of heart contraction, and by causing constriction of blood vessels. Administration of dopamine by injection requires direct supervision by a practitioner and can cause serious adverse effects in the therapeutic dosage range. Retaining prescription status for injectable forms of dopamine and its salts is therefore recommended.

Gold and its salts — The current listing for gold and its salts would be revised to retain prescription status for injectable (parenteral) forms of gold and its salts and derivatives. The revised listing would be worded so that it would not change the status of auranofin, an orally administered gold derivative that is listed separately in Schedule F. Gold and its salts and derivatives in any other dosage form or route of administration at any strength and for any use would be exempt from prescription status.

Gold is naturally occurring in trace amounts in nature, so it is appropriate to add qualifiers to the listing on Schedule F to avoid unintentionally subjecting products containing trace amounts of gold to prescription requirements where it is not necessary.

As prescription drugs, gold compounds are administered parenterally (by injection) to treat rheumatoid arthritis in patients for whom other treatments have been unsuccessful. Gold compounds administered by the parenteral route can have undesirable side effects at normal therapeutic dosage levels and require direct practitioner supervision and routine laboratory monitoring.

Lovastatin — The current listing for lovastatin would be revised to retain prescription status for all strengths and dosage forms except when lovastatin is sold in oral dosage form that provides less than 1.0 mg per dosage unit or per daily dose. Oral dosage forms containing less than 1.0 mg of lovastatin would be exempt from prescription status.

The proposed exemption for less than 1.0 mg is only 10% of the lowest therapeutic dose of 10 mg of lovastatin. This would allow red yeast rice products containing only trace amounts of lovastatin to be marketed as natural health products in Canada. Red yeast rice is derived from yeast grown on rice and is used as food in some Asian countries. It contains several substances, including lovastatin, known to reduce cholesterol.

As a prescription drug, lovastatin is available in Canada and is used to treat high cholesterol and is usually given in an initial dose of 10 to 20 mg daily, increased, if necessary, over a period of time to 80 mg daily to achieve target cholesterol levels.

Uracil and its salts — The current listing for uracil and its salts would be revised to retain prescription status for uracil and its salts when sold for the treatment of cancer. Uracil and its salts for other uses at any strength, dosage form or route of administration would be exempt from prescription status. Uracil is found in all living organisms so its listing in Schedule F without qualifiers is inappropriate.

Uracil has been used as a prescription drug in conjunction with other anti-cancer drugs to enhance antitumour activity and to reduce adverse effects. However, this therapeutic use is not currently in practice in Canada. If uracil were used in the treatment of cancer it would require the supervision of a practitioner and laboratory monitoring.

Alternatives

The alternative option would be to leave these four medicinal ingredients in Schedule F for all strengths, dosages, dosage forms and conditions of use. As measured against the factors for listing drugs in Schedule F, it has been determined that maintaining the current listings in Schedule F for these four medicinal ingredients is not appropriate.

As well, any alternatives to the degree of regulatory control recommended in this amendment would need to be established through additional scientific information and clinical experience.

  • Manufacturers

Manufacturers may benefit by being provided an opportunity to apply for product licences for natural health products containing the proposed exempted strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages of these medicinal ingredients.

There would be no immediate impact on manufacturers as there are currently no known products on the market in Canada for the strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages proposed for exemption from Schedule F. The status of currently marketed prescription drugs containing these ingredients would not change.

  • Health insurance plans

There would be no change in costs to drug benefit plans for prescription drugs containing these medicinal ingredients as their status would not change. Should natural health products containing the proposed exempted strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages of these medicinal ingredients receive market authorization from Health Canada, there would be no anticipated additional costs to privately funded drug benefit plans since most do not cover the cost of natural health products.

  • Provincial health care services

Notice of Intent — Food and Drug Regulations — Project No. 1656 — Schedule F

The purpose of this Notice of Intent (NOI) is to provide an opportunity for comment on the proposal to amend the current listings in Part I of Schedule F to the Food and Drug Regulations for three medicinal ingredients to retain prescription status for specific strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages, while providing exemptions that would allow non-prescription status.

Schedule F is a list of medicinal ingredients, the sale of which is controlled under sections C.01.041 to C.01.049 of the Food and Drug Regulations. Part I of Schedule F lists ingredients that require a prescription for human use and for veterinary use. Part II of Schedule F lists ingredients that require a prescription for human use, but do not require a prescription for veterinary use if so labelled or if in a form unsuitable for human use.

Description of the medicinal ingredients:

Dimethyl sulfoxide — The current listing for dimethyl sulfoxide (also referred to as DMSO) would be revised to retain prescription status for human use when dimethyl sulfoxide is sold for the treatment of interstitial cystitis or scleroderma and for all veterinary uses. All other human uses for dimethyl sulfoxide at any strength and in any dosage form would be exempt from prescription status. Dimethyl sulfoxide is found in many natural sources such as broad beans, alfalfa and garlic.

Drugs containing dimethyl sulfoxide for human use are available in Canada with a prescription for treatment of interstitial cystitis (a urinary bladder condition) and scleroderma (abnormal growth of connective tissue that supports the skin). Several products are currently available as prescription drugs for veterinary use to treat conditions such as ear inflammation in dogs. These products would retain prescription status.

Levocarnitine — The current listing for levocarnitine (also called L-carnitine) would be revised to retain prescription status for levocarnitine and its salts and derivatives when sold for the treatment of primary or secondary levocarnitine deficiencies. Levocarnitine and its salts and derivatives for any other uses at any strength, dosage form or route of administration would be exempt from prescription status. Levocarnitine occurs naturally in animal products and in small amounts in most plants.

Overall, levocarnitine functions in the body mainly in optimal fat utilization for energy production. Absorption of levocarnitine is high from dietary sources but if dietary intake is low then the body can maintain a balanced level by synthesizing or reducing elimination of levocarnitine. In most people, sufficient quantities of levocarnitine are obtained from the diet or synthesized in order to meet human requirements.

Primary levocarnitine deficiency is a genetically inherited condition related to the processing of levocarnitine in the body and can lead to muscle weakness and death from heart failure. Secondary levocarnitine deficiency syndromes are numerous, and include genetic defects of metabolism. Treatment of these conditions with levocarnitine requires the supervision of a practitioner and routine laboratory monitoring.

L-Tryptophan — The current listing for l-tryptophan when sold as a single ingredient would be revised to provide prescription status for l-tryptophan

— when sold for human use in oral dosage form as a single ingredient or in combination with other ingredients at a concentration of more than 220 mg l-tryptophan per dosage unit or per daily dose; and

— when sold for human use or veterinary use as a single ingredient for any route of administration other than oral use.

L-tryptophan is one of the essential amino acids that cannot be synthesized in the human body and must be provided in the diet. L-tryptophan acts in the body in the formation of the vitamin niacin and the neurotransmitter serotonin.

L-tryptophan is available in Canada as a prescription drug for use in combination with antidepressant drugs to enhance the activity of the antidepressant. L-tryptophan is also sold in combination with other amino acids in kidney dialysis and intravenous nutrition solutions without a prescription. The proposed amendment would not change the status of these products.

Alternatives

The alternative option would be to leave these three medicinal ingredients in Schedule F for all strengths, dosages, dosage forms and conditions of use. As measured against the factors for listing drugs in Schedule F, it has been determined that maintaining the current listings in Schedule F for these three medicinal ingredients is not appropriate.

As well, any alternatives to the degree of regulatory control recommended in this amendment would need to be established through additional scientific information and clinical experience.

Benefits and costs

  • Public

The public may benefit by potentially having access to licensed natural health products that would otherwise have required a prescription because they contain trace amounts of Schedule F ingredients. Potential safety concerns for products containing these non-prescription medicinal ingredients would be considered during the premarket review process under the Natural Health Products Regulations, a review which determines whether the product meets the safety, efficacy, and quality requirements of the Regulations and which provides for risks to be mitigated through recommended conditions of use and risk information including cautions, warnings, contraindications or known adverse reactions associated with its use, as appropriate.

  • Manufacturers

Manufacturers may benefit by being provided an opportunity to apply for product licences for natural health products containing the exempted strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages of these medicinal ingredients.

There would be no immediate impact on manufacturers as there are currently no known products on the market in Canada for the strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages proposed for exemption from Schedule F. The status of currently marketed prescription drugs containing these ingredients would not change.

  • Health insurance plans

There would be no change in costs to drug benefit plans for prescription drugs containing these medicinal ingredients as their status would not change. Should natural health products containing the proposed exempted strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages of these medicinal ingredients receive market authorization from Health Canada, there would be no anticipated additional costs to privately funded drug benefit plans since most do not cover the cost of natural health products.

  • Provincial health care services

There would be no change in costs to drug benefit plans for prescription drugs containing these medicinal ingredients as their status would not change. Should natural health products containing the proposed exempted strengths, uses, routes of administration or dosages of these medicinal ingredients receive market authorization from Health Canada, there would be no anticipated additional costs to provincial drug benefit plans since most do not cover the cost of natural health products.

Compliance and enforcement

This amendment would not alter existing compliance mechanisms under the provisions of the Food and Drugs Act, the Food and Drug Regulations and the Natural Health Products Regulations enforced by the Health Products and Food Branch Inspectorate.

Consultation

The process for this consultation with stakeholders is described in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to streamline regulatory amendments to Schedule F, which came into effect on February 22, 2005. The MOU is posted on the Health Canada Web site.

This NOI is being sent by email to stakeholders and is also being posted on the Health Canada Web site and the “Consulting with Canadians” Web site.

Any comments regarding this proposed amendment should be sent within 75 days following the date of publication in the Canada Gazette, Part I. The policy analyst for this project, Karen Ash, may be contacted at the following address: Refer to Project No. 1656, Bureau of Policy, Science and International Programs, Therapeutic Products Directorate, Health Canada, Holland Cross, Tower B, 2nd Floor, 1600 Scott Street, Address Locator 3102C5, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9, 613-948-4623 (telephone), 613-941-6458 (fax), regaff-affreg@hc-sc.gc.ca (email).

Final approval

In accordance with the MOU process, it is anticipated that this amendment will proceed directly from this consultation to consideration for final approval by the Governor in Council, approximately six to eight months from the date of publication of this NOI in the Canada Gazette, Part I. If the amendment is approved by the Governor in Council, publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II, would follow. The amendment would come into force on the date of registration.

NOTICE OF VACANCY

OFFICE OF THE COMMISSIONER OF REVIEW TRIBUNALS

CANADA PENSION PLAN / OLD AGE SECURITY: REVIEW TRIBUNALS

Commissioner (full-time position)

Salary range: $163,000–$191,800

Location: Ottawa, Ontario

In 1991, Parliament created the Canada Pension Plan Review Tribunals with the passage of Bill C-116. In 1995, Bill C-54 gave Review Tribunals additional jurisdiction to hear appeals under the Old Age Security Act. The Review Tribunals were created as a body independent from government that would make determinations regarding eligibility for persons claiming benefits under the Acts mentioned above.

When a person claiming entitlement to a benefit is not satisfied with the decision made by Human Resources and Social Development Canada, that person may appeal to a Review Tribunal under section 82 of the Canada Pension Plan or section 28 of the Old Age Security Act.

A Review Tribunal is an independent body of three persons selected by the Commissioner of Review Tribunals from a Panel of up to 400 individuals appointed by the Governor in Council. The Review Tribunal conducts a hearing and makes a decision regarding eligibility for benefits in individual cases.

The Office of the Commissioner is an independent, quasi-judicial body which has the responsibility of ensuring that hearings are carried out by Review Tribunal Panel Members in communities across the country. The Office of the Commissioner also has responsibility for providing legal advice, technical support, training and other assistance to Panel Members and for ensuring that all parties to an appeal are provided with the proper documentation, notices, and other material that might be necessary to ensure a fair and impartial hearing.

The Commissioner is responsible for the planning, organization and management of the Review Tribunal appeal process to ensure that the process is efficient and fair, and that Panel Members and staff are equipped to carry out their responsibilities.

The successful candidate will have a degree from a recognized university in a relevant field of study or an acceptable combination of equivalent education, training and job-related experience. The preferred candidate will possess executive-level management experience in a private or public sector organization, including managing financial and human resources in addition to demonstrated decision-making experience with respect to sensitive and complex issues. Experience in the interpretation and application of legislation, government policies and directives in a quasi-judicial environment as well as experience in the operation and conduct of a quasi-judicial tribunal, an agency or equivalent would be considered assets.

The suitable candidate will possess knowledge of the legislated mandate and operations of the Office of the Commissioner of Review Tribunals as well as knowledge of the Canada Pension Plan and the Old Age Security Act, the Review Tribunals Rules of Procedure and other related legislation. Familiarity with the appeals process and the operations of an administrative tribunal, including the rules that govern its operations, would be an asset.

The preferred candidate will have the ability to provide intellectual and strategic leadership and to define the objectives and strategies of the organization. The ideal candidate will possess sound management skills in order to motivate members and staff and to ensure the Review Tribunals adhere to the highest standards of accountability and transparency as well as the ability to manage and assess appeals and ensure the efficient assignment of case loads. The ability to develop effective relationships with the Minister and departmental officials while maintaining the degree of independence required of a quasi-judicial tribunal in addition to possessing superior communication skills (written and oral) with the ability to act as a spokesperson when dealing with stakeholders, media, public institutions, governments, the public and other organizations are also required.

The suitable candidate must be an individual of sound judgment and integrity and will adhere to high ethical standards. He/she will demonstrate impartiality, fairness, tact and discretion and will have superior interpersonal skills.

Proficiency in both official languages would be preferred.

The successful candidate must be willing to relocate to the National Capital Region or to a location within reasonable commuting distance as well as be willing to travel for extended periods of time to attend hearings and various other conferences and meetings in all parts of Canada.

The Government is committed to ensuring that its appointments are representative of Canada’s regions and official languages, as well as of women, Aboriginal peoples, disabled persons and visible minorities.

The preferred candidate must comply with the Ethical Guidelines for Public Office Holders and the Guidelines for the Political Activities of Public Office Holders. The guidelines are available on the Governor in Council Appointments Web site, under “Reference Materials,” at www.appointments-nominations.gc.ca.

The selected candidate will be subject to the Conflict of Interest Act. Public office holders appointed on a full-time basis must submit to the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner, within 60 days of appointment, a Confidential Report in which they disclose all of their assets, liabilities and outside activities. For more information please visit the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner’s Web site at http://ciec-ccie.gc.ca.

This notice has been placed in the Canada Gazette to assist the Governor in Council in identifying qualified candidates for this position. It is not, however, intended to be the sole means of recruitment.

Further details about the organization and its activities can be found on its Web site at www.ocrt-bctr.gc.ca.

Interested candidates should forward their curriculum vitae by January 15, 2010, to the Assistant Secretary to the Cabinet (Senior Personnel), Privy Council Office, 59 Sparks Street, 1st Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A3, 613-957-5006 (fax), GICA-NGEC@bnet.pco-bcp.gc.ca.
