ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment of Eight Heavy Fuel Oils

Pursuant to sections 68 and 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), the Ministers of the Environment and of Health have conducted a screening assessment of the following site-restricted heavy fuel oils (HFOs):

CAS RN*

DSL Name

64741-45-3

Residues (petroleum), atmospheric tower

64741-61-3

Distillates (petroleum), heavy catalytic cracked

64741-80-6

Residues (petroleum), thermal cracked

64742-90-1

Residues (petroleum), steam cracked

68333-22-2

Residues (petroleum), atmospheric

68333-27-7

Distillates (petroleum), hydrodesulfurized intermediate catalytic cracked

68476-32-4

Fuel oil, residues-straight-run gas oils, high-sulfur

68478-17-1

Residues (petroleum), heavy coker gas oil and vacuum gas oil

*CAS RN = Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number

These substances were identified as high priorities for action because, in the categorization of the Domestic Substances List, they were determined to present greatest potential or intermediate potential for exposure of individuals in Canada and were considered to present a high hazard to human health. Four of these substances also met the ecological categorization criteria for persistence, bioaccumulation and inherent toxicity to aquatic organisms. These substances were all included in the Petroleum Sector Stream Approach (PSSA) because they are related to the petroleum sector and are all complex mixtures.

Heavy fuel oils are a group of complex petroleum mixtures that serve as blending stocks in final heavy fuel products or as an intermediate product of distillate or residue derived from refinery distillation or cracking units. The final fuel product usually consists of a mixture of HFOs as well as higher-quality hydrocarbons as diluents. HFOs are composed of aromatic, aliphatic and cycloalkane hydrocarbons, primarily in the carbon range of C20 to C50 (C11 is the smallest hydrocarbon found in the group) and have a typical boiling point range from 160–650°C. As such, HFOs are considered to be of Unknown or Variable composition, Complex reaction products or Biological materials (UVCBs).

All of the CAS RNs considered here are potentially comprised of a significant proportion of persistent representative structures (>C30); thus, all of these CAS RNs are considered to be persistent in the environment.

Modelled and environmental data indicate that the representative structures found in these site-restricted HFOs do not have the ability to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms.

Experimental data available for CAS RN 64741-80-6 did not show a significant toxic effect on rainbow trout, algae or Daphnia. However, a range of aquatic toxicity predictions were obtained using the PetroTox (2009) model and these results indicate that all site-restricted HFOs are potentially highly hazardous to aquatic organisms (i.e. acute LC50 ≤ 1.0 mg/L).

Based principally on the weight-of-evidence assessments of international agencies, a critical effect for characterization of risk to human health for HFOs is carcinogenicity. Several studies reported skin tumour development in mice, rabbits and monkeys following repeated dermal application of HFO substances. HFOs demonstrated genotoxicity in in vivo and in vitro assays; however, results varied between HFOs with different CAS RNs. Studies in laboratory animals indicate that HFOs may also adversely affect reproduction and development.

The HFOs considered in this screening assessment have been identified as site-restricted (i.e. they are a subset of HFOs that are not expected to be transported off refinery or upgrader facility sites). According to information submitted under section 71 of CEPA 1999, voluntary industry submissions, an in-depth literature review, and a search of material safety data sheets, these HFOs are consumed on site or blended into substances leaving the site under different CAS RNs. Accordingly, environmental and general population exposure to these substances is not expected. As such, harm to the environment or human health is not expected. Therefore, it is proposed to conclude that these site-restricted HFO substances 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 biodiversity, or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends, or that constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Proposed conclusion

Based on the information available, it is proposed to conclude that the eight site-restricted HFOs listed under CAS RNs 64742-90-1, 64741-80-6, 64741-61-3, 64742-90-1, 68333-22-2, 68333-27-7, 68476-32-4 and 68478-17-1 do not meet the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999.

Because these substances are listed on the Domestic Substances List, their import and manufacture in Canada are not subject to notification under subsection 81(1) of CEPA 1999. Given the potential hazardous properties of these substances, there is concern that new activities that have not been identified or assessed could lead to these substances meeting the criteria set out in section 64 of the Act. Therefore, it is proposed that these substances be made subject to the Significant New Activity provisions of the Act, so that any import or use of these substances outside a petroleum refinery or upgrader facility is subject to notification and undergo ecological and human health risk assessments.

The draft Screening Assessment for these substances is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).

Summary of the Screening Assessment of Distillates (Petroleum), Light Thermal Cracked and Distillates (Petroleum), Hydrodesulfurized Light Catalytic Cracked

Pursuant to section 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), the Ministers of the Environment and of Health have conducted a screening assessment of site-restricted gas oils Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Nos. (CAS RNs) 64741-82-8 and 68333-25-5.

These substances were identified as high priorities for action because, in the categorization of the Domestic Substances List, they were determined to present greatest potential or intermediate potential for exposure of individuals in Canada and were considered to present a high hazard to human health. They did not meet all of the ecological categorization criteria for persistence, bioaccumulation potential and inherent toxicity to aquatic organisms. These substances were included in the Petroleum Sector Stream Approach (PSSA) because they are related to the petroleum sector and are all complex mixtures.

Gas oils are a group of complex petroleum mixtures that serve as blending stocks in the production of fuels that are used in diesel engines and for both industrial and domestic heating. Some of these substances may also be blended into solvents.

The composition and physical-chemical properties of gas oils vary with the sources of crude oils or bitumen and the processing steps involved. CAS RN 64741-82-8 is a complex mixture of aromatic, aliphatic and cycloalkane hydrocarbons, mainly in the carbon range of C10 to C22 with a typical boiling point range from 160 to 370°C. CAS RN 68333-25-5, which is a complex mixture of aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons, mainly in the carbon range of C9 to C25, is a hydrodesulfurized light catalytically cracked distillate with a typical boiling point range of 150 to 400°C. As such, gas oils are considered to be of Unknown or Variable composition, Complex reaction products or Biological materials (UVCBs).

These site-restricted gas oils are potentially harmful to aquatic organisms, but were found not to be persistent or bioaccumulative based on criteria in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations.

Based principally on the weight-of-evidence assessments of international agencies, a critical effect for the characterization of risk to human health for gas oils is carcinogenicity. Several studies conducted in mice reported development of skin tumours following repeated dermal application of gas oil substances. Gas oils demonstrated genotoxicity in in vivo and in vitro assays but appear to have limited potential to adversely affect reproduction and development.

The gas oils considered in this screening assessment have been identified as site-restricted (i.e. they are a subset of gas oils that are not expected to be transported off refinery or upgrader facility sites). According to information submitted under section 71 of CEPA 1999, voluntary industry submissions, an in-depth literature review, and a search of material safety data sheets, these gas oils are consumed on site or blended into substances leaving the site under different CAS RNs. Accordingly, environmental and general population exposure to these substances is not expected. As such, harm to the environment or human health is not expected. Therefore, it is proposed that CAS RNs 64741-82-8 and 68333-25-5 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, or that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Proposed conclusion

Based on the information available, it is proposed to conclude that the two site-restricted gas oils listed under CAS RNs 64741-82-2 and 68333-25-5 do not meet the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999.

Because these substances are listed on the Domestic Substances List, their import and manufacture in Canada are not subject to notification under subsection 81(1) of CEPA 1999. Given the potential hazardous properties of these substances, there is concern that new activities that have not been identified or assessed could lead to these substances meeting the criteria set out in section 64 of the Act. Therefore, it is proposed that these substances be made subject to the Significant New Activity provisions of the Act, so that any import or use of these substances outside a petroleum refinery or upgrader facility is notified and undergoes ecological and human health risk assessments.

The draft Screening Assessment for these substances is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).

NOTICE OF VACANCY

EXPORT DEVELOPMENT CANADA

President and Chief Executive Officer (full-time position)

Salary: $293,500–$345,300

Location: Ottawa, Ontario

Export Development Canada (EDC), federal Crown corporation, is Canada’s export credit agency, offering innovative financing, insurance and risk management solutions to help Canadian exporters and investors expand their international business.

EDC’s strength in financial services, innovative insurance and bonding products, international networks, and its in-depth analysis of global economic conditions, helps tailor solutions to the needs of Canadian exporters and investors. Every year, EDC’s knowledge and partnerships are used by more than 8 400 Canadian companies and their global customers in up to 200 markets. Approximately 80% of EDC’s customers are small- and medium-sized businesses.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President and CEO sets the course for EDC and is accountable for providing strategic guidance and leadership in the execution of EDC’s mandate and the management of its assets — balancing risk and reputation, considering the views of its diverse stakeholders, facilitating greater capacity and confidence among Canadian exporters and investors, and partnering with other financial institutions in support of the commercial activities of exporters that directly and indirectly benefit all Canadians.

The successful candidate will have a degree from a recognized university or an acceptable combination of equivalent education, job-related training and/or experience. He/she will have executive level management experience, preferably as a Chief Executive Officer or equivalent. Experience dealing with senior representatives of business and government as well as experience in leadership and general management of a large, revenue-dependent organization or business are considered assets. Experience reporting to or serving a board of directors would also be an asset.

The preferred candidate will have knowledge of the financial disciplines associated with the development and management of export insurance and financing instruments in addition to knowledge of the Government of Canada’s economic agenda to address trade issues and enhance Canada’s competitive position abroad. The successful candidate will possess knowledge of the issues and challenges related to the globalization of trade and to small and medium businesses preparing for export.

Description

Western Canada Marine Response Corporation (WCMRC) currently is a certified response organization pursuant to section 169 of the Act in respect of a rated capability of 10 000 tonnes and a geographic area covering the waters bordering British Columbia (including the shorelines associated with such waters) and excluding waters north of 60° north latitude.

Definitions

1. In this notice of fees

“Act” means the Canada Shipping Act,2001. (Loi)

“asphalt” means a derivate of oil that is commercially described as road or paving asphalt or unblended roofers flux, that has a specific gravity equal to or greater than one, that is solid at 15°C and that sinks to the bottom as a solid when immersed in water. (asphalte)

“BOCF” means bulk oil cargo fee. (DPPV)

“CALF” means capital asset/loan fee. (DIE)

“designated oil handling facility” means an oil handling facility that is prescribed pursuant to the Act and is located in WCMRC’s geographic area. (installation de manutention d’hydrocarbures agréée)

Bulk Oil Cargo Fees

2. The bulk oil cargo fees that are payable to WCMRC in relation to an arrangement required by subsections 167(1) and 168(1) of the Act are the bulk oil cargo fees set out in Part I of this notice.

3. Nothing in this notice is intended to modify, replace or amend the registration fees established by, and payable to, WCMRC and published in the November 8, 2008 edition of the Canada Gazette, Part I.

PART I

4. This part applies to the loading and unloading of oil within WCMRC’s Geographic Area of Response (GAR).

5. In relation to an arrangement with WCMRC, the total BOCF payable by a prescribed oil handling facility shall be determined by multiplying the total number of tonnes of bulk oil unloaded and (in the case of bulk oil intended for international destinations and destinations north of 60° north latitude) loaded at the prescribed oil handling facility, by the BOCF per tonne for each type of oil set out in sections 7 and 8 of this Part.

6. In relation to an arrangement with WCMRC, the total BOCF payable by a ship (bulk oil) shall be determined,

(a) in the case of bulk oil loaded onto the ship (bulk oil) and intended for international destinations and destinations north of 60° north latitude, by multiplying the total number of tonnes of bulk oil loaded at an oil handling facility that is within WCMRC’s geographic area, and that does not have an arrangement with WCMRC, by the BOCF per tonne for each type of oil set out in sections 7 and 8 of this Part;

(b) in the case of bulk oil unloaded from the ship (bulk oil), by multiplying the total number of tonnes of bulk oil unloaded at an oil handling facility that is within WCMRC’s geographic area, and that does not have an arrangement with WCMRC, by the BOCF per tonne for each type of oil set out in sections 7 and 8 of this Part;

(c) in the case of bulk oil loaded onto the ship (bulk oil) outside WCMRC’s geographic area which is transferred within WCMRC’s geographic area to another ship for use as fuel by such ship, by multiplying the total number of tonnes of bulk oil transferred, by the BOCF per tonne for each type of oil set out in sections 7 and 8 of this Part; and

(d) in the case of bulk oil received by the ship (bulk oil) within WCMRC’s geographic area from another ship as cargo where such bulk oil is intended for international destinations and destinations north of 60° north latitude, by multiplying the total number of tonnes of bulk oil received by the BOCF per tonne for each type of oil set out in sections 7 and 8 of this Part.

7. The BOCF applicable in respect of oil (other than asphalt) is

(a) an amended fee of twenty-two and one-tenth cents ($0.221) per tonne, plus all applicable taxes from July 1, 2010, to December 31, 2010.

8. The BOCF applicable in respect of asphalt is

(a) an amended fee of eleven and one-tenth cents ($0.111) per tonne, plus all applicable taxes from July 1, 2010, to December 31, 2010.

PART II

9. The capital asset/loan fees that are payable to WCMRC in relation to an arrangement required by subsections 167(1) and 168(1) of the Act are the capital asset/loan fees set out in Part II of this notice.

10. The capital asset/loan fee (CALF)

(a) is determined on the basis of cost per tonne;

(b) the CALF is calculated by multiplying a capital asset/loan fee rate (“CALFR”) by the applicable quantity of bulk oil loaded or unloaded within WCMRC’s Geographic Area of Response (“GAR”), and where applicable, bulk oil cargo transferred between ships within WCMRC’s GAR;

(c) the CALFR is calculated by dividing the forecast annual Funds Required for Capital Purchases (1) of WCMRC, plus the provision for tax (2) by the forecast Annual Volume (3) of bulk oil cargo to be loaded or unloaded within WCMRC’s GAR (4);

(d) Funds Required for Capital Purchases (1) = Annual Capital Budget plus the annual principal bank loan repayment, less amortization of capital assets (excluding amortization of assets purchased previously with the BOCF);

(e) Provision for tax (2) = (Funds Required for Capital Purchases less amortization of capital assets purchased previously with the BOCF) multiplied by the applicable rate of tax;

(f) Annual Volume (3) = Total volume of bulk oil cargo unloaded + total volume of bulk oil loaded for international destinations and north of 60th parallel of latitude within WCMRC’s GAR and where applicable, bulk oil cargo transferred between ships within WCMRC’s GAR; and

(g) GAR (4) = Geographic area of response for which WCMRC is certified to operate.

11. The CALFR calculated by the above formula is applicable to all products except asphalt. The CALFR for asphalt is 50% of the rate for all other products.

12. The CALF applicable in respect to asphalt is

(a) a fee of seven cents ($0.070) per tonne, plus all applicable taxes from July 1, 2010, to December 31, 2010; and

(b) an amended fee of zero cents ($0.000) per tonne, from January 1, 2011.

The CALF applicable in respect to other products is

(a) a fee of thirteen and nine-tenths cents ($0.139) per tonne, plus all applicable taxes from July 1, 2010, to December 31, 2010; and

(b) an amended fee of zero cents ($0.000) per tonne, from January 1, 2011.

MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY ACT

Technical Standards Document No. 206, Door Locks and Door Retention Components — Revision 2

Notice is hereby given, pursuant to section 12 of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act and sections 16 and 17 of the Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations, that the Department of Transport has revised Technical Standards Document (TSD) No. 206, Door Locks and Door Retention Components, which establishes performance and equipment requirements for door retention systems. Revision 2 of TSD No. 206 is effective as of the date of publication of this notice.

TSD No. 206, Door Locks and Door Retention Components, reproduces U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 206 of the same title and is incorporated by reference in section 206 of Schedule IV of the Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations. On February 19, 2010, the U.S. safety standard No. 206 was amended, modifying specific provisions regarding test requirements and definitions. Prior to this amendment, the Canadian safety standard was aligned with its U.S. counterpart. This revision would re-establish harmonization with respect to door locks and door retention components.

This amendment replaces the current load application rate with a time requirement for the sliding door test and accurately specifies force application positioning for the sliding door test. In addition, this revision better defines the allowable rotation for test plates, reinstates the exclusion of doors equipped with wheelchair lift systems and clarifies provisions regarding window and door positions during testing.

Copies of Revision 2 of TSD No. 206 may be obtained on the Internet at www.tc.gc.ca/acts-regulations/regulations/crc-c1038/ menu.htm. Any inquiries should be directed to Anthony Jaz, Senior Regulatory Development Engineer, Standards and Regulations Division, Road Safety and Motor Vehicle Regulation Directorate, Department of Transport, 275 Slater Street, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0N5, 613-998-1963 (telephone), 613-998-8188 (fax), anthony.jaz@tc.gc.ca (email).
