EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the notice.)

Under the Petroleum Sector Stream Approach, information has been gathered on high priority petroleum substances so that informed decisions can be made and any potential risks that may be associated with these chemicals can be appropriately managed. Upon examination of information on their production and uses, the high priority petroleum substances were divided into five categories (or “streams”):

0 — substances concluded not to be relevant to the petroleum sector and/or not in commerce;

1 — site-restricted substances, which are substances that are not expected to be transported off refinery, upgrader or natural gas processing facility sites;

2 — industry-restricted substances, which are substances that may leave a petroleum-sector facility and be transported to other industrial facilities (for example for use as a feedstock, fuel or blending component), but that do not reach the public market in the form originally acquired;

3 — substances that are primarily used by industries and consumers as fuel; and

4 — substances that may be present in products available to the consumer.

Stream 4 substances present a particular interest as they are likely to cause different exposure patterns from those of the other four streams. This current Notice with respect to certain high priority petroleum substances on the Domestic Substances List addresses petroleum substances from the stream that may be present in products available to the consumer.

ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment of Ethane, 1,2-dibromo- (1,2-dibromoethane)

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 Ethane, 1,2-dibromo- (1,2-dibromoethane), Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 106-93-4, which was a substance on the Domestic Substances List (DSL) selected for a pilot project for screening assessments implemented to develop and apply new approaches for screening assessments. 1,2-Dibromoethane was identified as a priority for assessment because it met the criteria for persistence and/or bioaccumulation and inherent toxicity to non-human organisms and on the basis of greatest potential for human exposure.

The substance 1,2-dibromoethane is considered to be predominantly anthropogenic in origin, though detection of 1,2-dibromoethane in marine air and water suggests possible natural formation as the result of macroalgae growth. In Canada, 1,2-dibromoethane is solely used as a lead scavenger in leaded gasoline for high-performance competition vehicles and piston engine aircraft. Internationally, 1,2-dibromoethane may be used as a grain fumigant; a moth control agent in beehives; a wood preservative in the timber industry; an activator of magnesium in the preparation of Grignard reagents; a chemical intermediate in the production of vinyl bromide, plastic and latex; and it may be used in the formulation of flame retardants, polyester dyes, resins and waxes. Based on a survey issued under section 71 of CEPA 1999, between 10 000 and 100 000 kg of 1,2-dibromoethane were imported into Canada in the 2000 calendar year.

According to the available information, 1,2-dibromoethane does not degrade quickly in air, and it has a high potential for long-range transport in this medium. It also does not degrade quickly in groundwater. Low experimental bioconcentration factor values suggest that 1,2-dibromoethane has limited bioaccumulation potential in organisms. In addition, experimental toxicity data for 1,2-dibromoethane suggests that this substance is not expected to cause acute harm to aquatic organisms at low concentrations.

In Canada, 1,2-dibromoethane is routinely monitored in ambient air but not in water, soil or sediments. Risk characterization using conservative exposure concentrations measured in ground water and soil from industrial and non-industrial sites as well as modelled concentrations for surface water, and critical toxicity values for aquatic and soil organisms indicate that this substance is not entering the Canadian environment under conditions that would be harmful to the environment or its biological diversity.

The substance 1,2-dibromoethane is used as a fuel additive in leaded gasoline for aviation and competition vehicle use. Increases in the releases of this substance to the environment from leaded gasoline are not anticipated, as recent data suggests that the quantities of these fuels are not increasing. General population exposure to 1,2-dibromoethane is low from environmental media and food and is not expected from consumer products.

A critical effect for the characterization of risk of 1,2-dibromoethane exposure to human health is carcinogenicity, as there is strong evidence of carcinogenicity of 1,2-dibromoethane in rats and mice following oral or inhalation exposure. 1,2-Dibromoethane was also genotoxic in several in vivo and in vitro assays. Therefore, although the mode of induction of tumours has not been fully elucidated, it cannot be precluded that the tumours observed in experimental animals resulted from direct interaction of 1,2-dibromoethane with genetic material.

General population exposure to 1,2-dibromoethane is expected mainly through indoor air. Drinking water, food and beverages are considered to be more minor sources of overall general population exposure. As no consumer products containing 1,2-dibromoethane were identified in Canada, exposure from use of consumer products is not expected.

On the basis of the carcinogenic and genotoxic potential of 1,2-dibromoethane, together with the potential for general population exposure, it is proposed to conclude that 1,2-dibromoethane is a substance that may be 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.

Based on the information available with regard to the environment, it is proposed to conclude that 1,2-dibromoethane is 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. Additionally, it is proposed to conclude that 1,2-dibromoethane meets the criteria for persistence but not for bioaccumulation potential as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations.

Where relevant, research and monitoring will support verification of assumptions used during the screening assessment and, where appropriate, the performance of potential control measures identified during the risk management phase.

Proposed conclusion

Based on available information for environmental and human health considerations, it is proposed to conclude that 1,2-dibromoethane meets one or more of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999.

The draft Screening Assessment as well as the risk management scope document for this substance is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www. chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).

ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment of Ethene, 1,1-dichloro- (1,1-Dichloroethene)

Pursuant to paragraphs 68(b) and (c) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), the Ministers of the Environment and of Health have conducted a screening assessment of Ethene, 1,1-dichloro- (1,1-dichloroethene, or 1,1-DCE), Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 75-35-4, which was a substance on the Domestic Substances List selected for a pilot project for screening assessments. 1,1-DCE was identified as a high priority for assessment of human health risk because it has been classified by other agencies on the basis of carcinogenicity.

The substance 1,1-DCE is a chlorinated organic compound that was used in solvents and as an intermediate in a variety of chemical processes. Based on a survey issued under section 71 of CEPA 1999, between 10 and 100 tonnes of 1,1-DCE were manufactured and imported into Canada in 2000. However, it is no longer produced or imported into Canada for these uses. Small amounts of 1,1-DCE are created unintentionally in several industrial processes; most of this material is reformed into other substances within the facilities.

Globally, 1,1-DCE is used primarily as an intermediate in the manufacture of polyvinylidene chloride polymers and copolymers, which may in turn be used in a variety of end products such as food plastic wrap, carpet latex backing, fire- and ignition-resistant clothing, vapour barriers for insulation, paper and board coatings, and photographic film. 1,1-DCE may persist as an unintended manufacturing residue in some of these items that may be present in Canadian commerce. 1,1-DCE may also be used in the production of hydrochlorofluorocarbons, chloroacetyl chloride, and latex and resins; as an aid in ore flotation; as a solvent in paint and varnish remover; and as a vapour degreaser and industrial cleaning agent.

The substance 1,1-DCE is a reportable substance to the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI); reported releases have steadily declined from 87 kg in 2000 to 1 kg in 2003. Since 2003, no companies have reported releases of 1,1-DCE to the NPRI.

The substance 1,1-DCE can also be released during the breakdown of polyvinylidene chloride products and during the abiotic and biotic decomposition of the drycleaning and degreasing solvents 1,1,1-Trichloroethane, 1,1,2,2-Tetrachloroethene (tetrachloroethene or perchloroethylene), 1,1,2-Trichloroethene and 1,2-Dichloroethane. Risk management activities have removed many of these solvent uses and poor disposal practices from Canadian society, such that significant new sources of 1,1-DCE in groundwater and soil should be less of an issue.

Based on experimental and modelled data for 1,1-DCE, the substance is expected to degrade readily in air, soil and water. Based on its physical and chemical properties and on predictions from bioaccumulation models, the substance is not expected to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms. Therefore, 1,1-DCE does not meet criteria for persistence and bioaccumulation potential as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations. In addition, available empirical ecotoxicity data (for mammals, aquatic and terrestrial plants, invertebrates and vertebrates) indicate that 1,1-DCE is not highly hazardous to non-human organisms.

Recent monitoring data show that 1,1-DCE is present in urban air at very low concentrations, often just above analytical detection limits.

The ecological risk characterization considers Canadian monitoring data and the most sensitive non-human species to generate risk quotients. The risk quotients calculated for water and air, which are significantly less than 1, indicate that there is a very low likelihood of ecological harm from the concentrations of 1,1-DCE found in the Canadian environment.

Based on the information available, it is proposed to conclude that 1,1-DCE is not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term effect on the environment or its biological diversity.

The general population exposure to 1,1-DCE is mainly from indoor air and food and beverages. A comparison of the lowest critical inhalation effect level for non-cancer effects with the weighted average air concentration of 1,1-DCE in indoor and outdoor air in Canada, and a comparison of the critical oral effect level for non-cancer effects and the upper-bounding estimate of daily intake result in margins of exposure which are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases for non-cancer effects.

A critical effect for characterization of risk of 1,1-DCE is carcinogenicity. Following lifetime inhalation of 1,1-DCE at high concentrations, mice developed renal tumours. A comparison of the critical effect level for cancer and the upper-bounding estimate of daily intakes results in margins of exposure which are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases for cancer effects. Additionally, available information suggests that the mode of tumour induction in experimental animals may not be relevant to humans.

Based on the information available, it is proposed to conclude that 1,1-DCE is 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.

This substance will be included in the Domestic Substances List inventory update initiative. In addition and where relevant, research and monitoring will support verification of assumptions used during the screening assessment.

Proposed conclusion

Based on available information for environmental and human health considerations, it is proposed to conclude that 1,1-DCE does not meet the criteria set out in section 64 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. Additionally, 1,1-DCE does not meet the criteria for persistence or bioaccumulation potential as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations.

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

FOOD AND DRUGS ACT

Food and Drug Regulations — Amendments

Interim Marketing Authorization

Provision currently exists in the Food and Drug Regulations (the Regulations) for the use of microcrystalline cellulose as a bodying and texturizing agent in unstandardized foods to a maximum level of use of 2%.

Health Canada has received a submission to permit the use of microcrystalline cellulose as a bodying and texturizing agent in sausage casings at a maximum level of use of 5%. Evaluation of available data supports the safety and effectiveness of microcrystalline cellulose as a bodying and texturizing agent in the production of these food products.

The use of microcrystalline cellulose will benefit consumers by increasing the availability of quality food products. It will also benefit industry through more efficient and improved manufacturing conditions.

Therefore, it is the intention of Health Canada to recommend that the Regulations be amended to permit the use of microcrystalline cellulose as a bodying and texturizing agent in sausage casings at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice.

As a means to improve the responsiveness of the regulatory system, an Interim Marketing Authorization (IMA) is being issued to permit the immediate use of microcrystalline cellulose, as indicated above, while the regulatory process is undertaken to amend the Regulations. Sausage casings are exempted from paragraph B.01.043(b) and from section B.16.007 of the Regulations only with respect to the use of microcrystalline cellulose.

The proposed regulatory amendments would be enabling measures to allow the sale of additional foods containing microcrystalline cellulose as a bodying and texturizing agent. The amendments are supported by the safety assessment and would have low impact on the economy and on the environment. Consequently, the regulatory amendments may proceed directly to final approval and publication in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅱ.

Interested persons may make representations, with respect to Health Canada’s intention to amend the Regulations, within 75 days after the date of publication of this notice. All such representations must cite the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, and the date of publication of this notice, and be addressed to the contact person identified below.
