NOTICE REQUIRING THE PREPARATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF POLLUTION PREVENTION PLANS WITH RESPECT TO BISPHENOL A IN INDUSTRIAL EFFLUENTS

Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the provisions of Part 4 of the Act, the Minister of the Environment requires any person or class of persons described in section 2 of the Notice to prepare and implement a pollution prevention plan in respect of bisphenol A in industrial effluents.

1. Definitions

The definitions in this section apply to the Notice.

“Act” means the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).

“Bisphenol A or BPA” means Phenol, 4,4′ -(1-Methylethylidene)bis-, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) (see footnote 1) Number 80-05-7.

“Calendar year” refers to a complete year beginning January 1 and ending December 31.

“Final discharge point” is an identifiable discharge point beyond which the industrial facility owner or operator no longer exercises control over quality of the effluent.

“Effluent” means process wastewater from an industrial facility released into the off-site wastewater system or to surface water.

“Minister” means the Minister of the Environment.

“Normal operating conditions” means representative of regular or typical operating conditions related to the manufacture or use of bisphenol A or mixture containing bisphenol A which results in an effluent containing bisphenol A at the final discharge point.

“Notice” means the Notice requiring the preparation and implementation of pollution prevention plans with respect to bisphenol A in industrial effluents.

“Plan” means a pollution prevention plan.

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

(1) The Notice applies to any person or class of persons who owns or operates an industrial facility which, during the calendar year prior to the date of publication of the Notice, or any calendar year thereafter meets any of the following criteria:

  1. (a) Manufactures bisphenol A in a quantity greater than 100 kg and, as a result of manufacture, the effluent at the final discharge point of the facility contains bisphenol A;

  2. (b) Uses bisphenol A in a quantity greater than 100 kg and, as a result of use, the effluent at the final discharge point of the facility contains bisphenol A; or

  3. (c) Uses a mixture containing bisphenol A in a quantity greater than 100 kg and, as a result of use, the effluent at the final discharge point of the facility contains bisphenol A.

(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 releases an effluent containing bisphenol A resulting exclusively from pulp and paper recycling, scientific research or laboratory testing.

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

(1) The Minister requires any persons or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice to prepare and implement a plan in relation to the release of bisphenol A in effluents through

  1. (a) the manufacture of bisphenol A; or

  2. (b) the use of bisphenol A or a mixture containing bisphenol A during processing or manufacturing activities.

(2) Despite subsection 3(1), a plan does not have to be prepared and implemented in relation to effluent containing bisphenol A resulting exclusively from pulp and paper recycling, scientific research or laboratory testing.

4. Factors to consider in preparing the plan

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

(1) Bisphenol A was declared toxic under section 64 of the Act and was added to the List of Toxic Substances in Schedule 1 of the Act. The final Screening Assessment Report concluded that bisphenol A 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 or constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health. Bisphenol A is acutely toxic to aquatic organisms and is a known endocrine disruptor.

(2) The risk management objective of this Notice is continual improvement towards reaching the lowest level of bisphenol A in the environment. This is to be accomplished by achieving and maintaining the lowest total bisphenol A concentration that is economically and technically feasible and is less than 1.75 µg/L in the effluent released at the final discharge point of the facility through methods other than dilution.

(3) In preparing a plan, any person or class of persons subject to the Notice is to give first consideration to pollution prevention activities prior to considering pollution control activities. “Pollution prevention,” 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.”

(4) The use of alternatives to bisphenol A should be considered to reduce or minimize environmental and human health risks. The chosen alternatives should not have, through their degradation, the potential to produce bisphenol A.

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

  1. (a) Effluent samples should be collected in such a way that they are representative of the effluent containing bisphenol A released at a final discharge point under normal operating conditions;

  2. (b) Effluent samples should be collected and analyzed a minimum of four times per year;

  3. (c) Sampling and analysis of the samples should be performed in accordance with what are generally accepted standards of good scientific practice at the time of the analysis; and

  4. (d) Analysis of the samples should be performed by a laboratory that is accredited by a Canadian accrediting body under the International Organization for Standardization standard ISO/IEC 17025 titled General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories, as amended from time to time.

(6) The following documents should be kept with the plan:

  1. (a) a description and the location of all final discharge points; and

  2. (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 bisphenol A in the facility’s effluent.

(7) Monitoring of the plan should include one year of sampling and analysis at the final discharge point(s) after the risk management objective set in subsection 4(2) of the Notice is met. Sampling and analysis should be conducted as specified in subsection 4(5) of the Notice.

(8) The Minister will evaluate the effectiveness of the Notice with respect to the risk management objective set out in subsection 4(2) of the Notice in order to determine whether other measures, including regulations, are needed to further prevent or reduce negative impacts of bisphenol A on the environment or human health.

5. Period within which the plan is to be prepared

(1) For a person or class of persons subject to the Notice on the date of publication in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, the Minister requires that the plan be prepared and that its implementation be initiated no later than December 31, 2012.

4(4) Use of Alternatives (e.g. availability, cost or technology)

 

4(5) Sampling and Analysis activities (e.g. description of the location, frequency, method and parameters of sampling and analysis activities)

 

4(6) Keep additional documents with the plan (e.g. location of final discharge point, factors that contribute in increasing the concentration of BPA in effluents)

4(3) Use of Pollution Prevention

 

4(4) Use of Alternatives (e.g. availability, cost or technology)

 

4(5) Sampling and Analysis activities (e.g. description of the location, frequency, method and parameters of sampling and analysis activities)

 

4(6) Keep additional documents with the plan (e.g. location of final discharge point, factors that contribute increasing the concentration of BPA in effluents)

 

4(7) Monitoring after meeting the Risk Management Objective (RMO) [e.g. one year of sampling or other monitoring activities after meeting RMO]
