MIGRATORY BIRDS CONVENTION ACT, 1994

Notice of intent

Notice is hereby given that the Department of the Environment intends to recommend to the Governor in Council that amendments be made to the Migratory Birds Regulations, pursuant to section 12 of the Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994.

The purpose of these amendments to Schedule I of the Regulations is to amend hunting season dates for 2013–2014, as well as the number of migratory game birds that may be taken or possessed during those dates. The Regulations are modified on an annual basis in response to changes in the status of migratory game bird populations.

Canadian hunting regulations for migratory game birds are reviewed annually by Environment Canada, with input from the provinces and territories and a range of other interested stakeholders. The Canadian Wildlife Service produces three reports as part of its formalized annual consultation process. The first report, issued in December and titled Population Status of Migratory Game Birds in Canada, contains population and other biological information on migratory game birds, thus providing the scientific basis for management. The second report, issued in January and titled Proposals to Amend the Canadian Migratory Birds Regulations, outlines the proposed changes to the annual hunting regulations as well as proposals to amend the special conservation measures for overabundant species and other proposed amendments to the Migratory Birds Regulations. These two reports are distributed to organizations and individuals with an interest in migratory game bird conservation and provide the opportunity for input regarding the proposed regulatory amendments. The third report, Migratory Birds Regulations in Canada, issued in July, summarizes the hunting regulations for the upcoming hunting season and is also provided to organizations and individuals with an interest in migratory game bird conservation.

Electronic copies of the above-mentioned documents may be viewed at the following address: http://ec.gc.ca/rcom-mbhr/default.asp?lang=En&n=0EA37FB2-1.

Interested parties who wish to comment on the proposed amendments are invited to submit their comments before February 28, 2013, to the Director General, Canadian Wildlife Service, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0H3.

Proposed Code of Practice for 2-Butanone, Oxime (Butanone Oxime) Associated with the Interior Application of Consumer Alkyd Paint and Coating Products

Glossary of terms

CEPA 1999

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Manufacturer

A person who produces or prepares butanone oxime and who has the responsibility for labelling applicable products.

Importer

A person who participates in importing butanone oxime and who has the responsibility for labelling applicable products; import includes movement into Canada, as well as internal company transfers across the Canadian border, but does not include transit through Canada.

User

A person who sells, distributes or repackages butanone oxime and who has the responsibility for labelling applicable products (does not include import and manufacture).

Consumer product

For the purpose of this proposed Code, a consumer product is a product that may reasonably be expected to be obtained by an individual to be used for non-commercial purposes.

Interior consumer alkyd paint and coating products

Alkyd paint and coating products that are consumer products and that are to be used for interior applications.

Dual use consumer alkyd paint and coating products

Alkyd paint and coating products that are consumer products and that may be used for interior or exterior applications.

Purpose of Code of Practice

1. The purpose of this proposed Code of Practice (herein referred to as the “proposed Code”) is intended to reduce inhalation exposure to butanone oxime by the general public during interior application of consumer alkyd paint and coating products. This proposed Code will outline information that should be added to the labels of consumer alkyd paint and coating products with an aim to change consumer behaviour to help reduce air concentrations of butanone oxime during and immediately following interior application of alkyd paint and coating products.

Background

2. The substance butanone oxime, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number (CAS RN) 96-29-7, is part of the chemical grouping discrete organics and the chemical sub-grouping oximes, or more specifically, ketoximes. Butanone oxime was included in Batch 7 of the Challenge under the Government of Canada’s Chemicals Management Plan.

3. The most prevalent use of butanone oxime is as an anti-skinning agent in the formulation of alkyd paints, primers, varnishes and stains. Anti-skinning agents are added to prevent air-dried coatings from forming hard, congealed films on the surface of the coating during storage by preventing the drier effect until application of the coating. In closed containers, the oxidation and skin formation take place due to the presence of air between the coating surface and the closed lid. Butanone oxime is the most used anti-skinning agent in paints and is a volatile type of anti-skinning agent (i.e. will be volatilized from a formulation upon application to allow drying) [Danish Environmental Protection Agency, 2003]. The use of anti-skinning agents is a compromise between preventing skinning and retaining an adequate drying potential of the coating after application. The cross-linking should be as slow as possible during storage and then regain its full drying potential as soon as possible after application. Therefore, for drying performance, it is preferable that a minimum amount of anti-skinning agent be used (Danish Environmental Protection Agency, 2003).

Elements of exposure mitigation for the interior application of consumer alkyd paint and coating products

4. A study by Chang et al. (1998) examined emissions of butanone oxime following application of interior alkyd paint products. This study and a publication on healthy indoor painting practices (United States Environmental Protection Agency, 2000) have been considered in the development of label statements that will serve to guide the general public on actions intended to reduce indoor air concentrations.

5. Mechanisms to reduce exposure to butanone oxime during and following interior application of consumer alkyd paint and coating products include the following:

  • Increasing ventilation in the work area during painting. Maximizing the ventilation and releasing exhaust air to outdoors may result in a reduction in air concentrations of butanone oxime during the work period.
  • Using continued ventilation, which may result in a more rapid decrease in air concentrations of butanone oxime after painting.
  • Reducing the concentration of butanone oxime in interior consumer alkyd paint and coating products to the lowest level technically feasible.

Applicability

6. This proposed Code applies to all manufacturers, importers and users of butanone oxime in Canada that have responsibility for labelling applicable products (e.g. brand owner), specifically alkyd paint and coating products containing butanone oxime to be sold as a consumer product for interior use.

Applicable products

7. The label instructions outlined in paragraph 10 of this proposed Code of Practice should apply to the following products:

  • Interior consumer alkyd paint and coating products; and
  • Dual-use consumer alkyd paint and coating products.

Products excluded from the proposed code

8. Consumer alkyd paint and coating products clearly labelled exclusively for exterior application should not be subject to this proposed Code.

Best practices and label statements

9. Reduce the concentration of butanone oxime to the lowest achievable levels: To achieve reduced indoor air concentrations of butanone oxime, interior consumer alkyd paint and coating products should contain the lowest possible level of butanone oxime necessary to remain effective for their intended applications.

10. Label statements for increased ventilation: In order to help achieve reduced indoor air concentrations the label should outline the following:

  • (a) If not already required under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA): “USE ONLY IN WELL VENTILATED AREAS”,

  • (b) “OPEN WINDOWS OR BLOW AIR OUTDOORS WITH FAN.” and

  • (c) “CONTINUE VENTILATION FOLLOWING APPLICATION.”

Declaration

11. Manufacturers, importers and users of butanone oxime in Canada who intend to implement the labelling measures in this Code of Practice are advised to communicate, in writing, their intention to the Minister of Health no later than six months after publication of the Code of Practice or six months after they start to use butanone oxime in their products. The Minister of Health should be notified in writing when those subject to this proposed Code permanently cease to use butanone oxime in the applicable products.

Record keeping and reporting

12. Record keeping: It is recommended that the electronic or paper records be maintained at the company principal place of business in Canada, for a period of at least five years after they are made. These records should include the following information:

  • (a) A copy of each label for consumer alkyd paint and coating products manufactured, imported or used that are subject to this proposed Code; and

  • (b) The name and civic address of each facility where the Code of Practice is being implemented.

13. Reporting: Manufacturers, importers and users of butanone oxime in Canada who intend to implement the labelling measures in this Code of Practice are advised to provide the records specified in paragraph 12 to the Minister of Health three years following the publication of the final Code of Practice and upon request.

14. The person submitting the records should specify the civic address at which the records, reports and other information can be inspected and identify each facility to which each of those records, reports and other information pertains.

Contact information to submit declarations and reports

15. Declarations and reporting submissions should be submitted to the Minister of Health either by mail, email or fax to the following addresses. Please type: “Consultation on Proposed Butanone Oxime Code of Practice” in the subject line of your message.

16. Any person who provides information to the Minister of Health, with respect to this proposed Code of Practice, may submit with the information a request that it be treated as confidential and that request will receive appropriate consideration.

Verification

17. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of this Code, the Minister of Health may request the records specified in paragraph 12 at any time and may conduct periodic evaluations to help determine if other risk management measures are needed to further reduce inhalation exposure to butanone oxime by the general public during interior application of consumer alkyd paint and coating products.
