2. Person or class of persons required to prepare and implement a plan

(1) This Notice applies to any person or class of persons who owns or operates an industrial facility that, in 2011 or any time thereafter, meets all the following criteria:

  • (a) Manufactures or uses D4 or a mixture containing D4 where the total quantity of D4 manufactured or used is equal or greater than 100 kg per calendar year; and
  • (b) As a result of manufacturing or use of D4 or a mixture containing D4, releases an effluent containing D4 at the final discharge point of the facility.

(2) The Notice applies to any person or class of persons who is the successor or assign of the persons identified in subsection 2(1).

(3) Despite subsection 2(1), the Notice does not apply to any person or class of persons who owns or operates an industrial facility that

  • (a) uses a mixture that contains D4 in a concentration of less than 1%; or
  • (b) uses D4 strictly as contained in any solid material including, but not limited to, rubber, wiring insulation and seals for automobiles, and that does not release an effluent containing D4 at the final discharge point of the facility.

3. Activities in relation to which the plan is to be prepared

The Minister requires all persons or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice to prepare and implement a plan in relation to the release of D4 in effluents through

  • (a) the manufacture of D4 or a mixture containing D4; or
  • (b) the use of D4 or a mixture containing D4.

4. Factors to consider in preparing the plan

The Minister requires all persons or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice to consider the following factors when preparing their plan:

(1) D4 was declared toxic under paragraph 64(a) of the Act and the proposed order to add this substance to Schedule 1 of the Act was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on May 16, 2009. According to the final Screening Assessment Report, D4 is entering or may be 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. The final Screening Assessment Report also concluded that D4 meets the criterion for persistence as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations.

(2) In order to prevent or minimize release of D4 to the aquatic environment, the overall risk management objective is to achieve the lowest level of release of D4 to water that is technically and economically feasible. Therefore, continual improvement towards achieving this objective is encouraged.

(3) The specific risk management objective for this Notice is to achieve and maintain a total D4 concentration in effluent at final discharge point of the facility, through methods other than dilution, that is less than or equal to

  • (a) 2.3 μg/L for effluent released directly in surface water or in a wastewater system that does not have treatment; or
  • (b) 17.3 μg/L for effluent released into a wastewater system that does have treatment.

For a person or class of persons subject to the Notice on the date of publication in the Canada Gazette, Part I, these concentrations should be met no later than 48 months from the date of publication of the Notice.

For a person or class of persons becoming subject to the Notice after the date of publication in the Canada Gazette, Part I, these concentrations should be met no later than 12 months from becoming subject to the Notice.

(4) Sampling and analysis should be completed as described below:

  • (a) The sampling should be representative of normal operating conditions related to the manufacturing or use of D4;
  • (b) Samples should be representative of the effluent at final discharge point(s) of the facility;
  • (c) Samples should be collected and analyzed at the minimum frequency indicated below:
    • (i) For continuous processes: four grab samples per calendar year with a minimum interval of 60 days between each sample,
    • (ii) For batch processes: one grab sample for each batch produced within a calendar year. If more than four batches are produced within a calendar year, four grab samples should be collected. Sample should be collected when there is a potential for release;
    (d) Analysis of samples should be performed in accordance with generally accepted standards of good scientific practice at the time of the analysis and by a laboratory that is accredited by a Canadian accrediting body under the International Organization for Standardization standard ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 titled General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories, as amended from time to time.

(5) In preparing a plan, a person or class of persons subject to the Notice is to give priority to pollution prevention activities. “Pollution prevention” (P2), as defined in section 3 of the Act, means “the use of processes, practices, materials, products, substances or energy that avoid or minimize the creation of pollutants and waste and reduce the overall risk to the environment or human health.”

(6) The use of alternatives to D4 should be considered to reduce or minimize environmental risks. The chosen alternatives should not have, through their degradation, the potential to produce D4, nor should such alternatives cause similar environmental effects.

(7) Additional documents that should be kept with the plan:

  • (a) a description and the location (maps) of all final discharge points; and
  • (b) a description of the factors (e.g. type of technology, human factor, accidental releases, type of manufacturing, daily use) that could increase the quantity or concentration of the substance in the facility’s effluent.

(8) The plan should include one year of monitoring which involves sampling and analysis at the final discharge point(s) after meeting the specific risk management objective for this Notice set in subsection 4(3). Sampling and analysis should be conducted as specified in subsection 4(4).

(9) The Minister will evaluate the effectiveness of this Notice with respect to the risk management objective set out in subsection 4(2) and effluent concentrations set out in subsection 4(3) of the Notice in order to determine whether other measures, including regulations, are needed to further prevent or reduce negative impacts of D4 on the environment.

5. Period within which the plan is to be prepared
