EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the notice.)

On March 31, 2012, Environment Canada and Health Canada published a preliminary assessment that proposed that triclosan is entering or may enter 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 data that is being gathered via this notice is needed to provide an update on quantities, use patterns, details on products and industrial processes to help identify potential sources and the release quantities to the environment. This information will be considered in the final risk assessment and will be used to inform risk management, if required.

This notice is published in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, under paragraph 71(1)(b) of the Act. This notice requires the persons to whom it applies to provide certain information on their activities with respect to triclosan (5-chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy) phenol; CAS RN (see footnote 5) 3380-34-5).

Pursuant to subsection 71(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, every person to whom this notice applies is required to comply with this notice within the time specified in the notice. The time specified in this notice is July 11, 2013, 5 p.m., Eastern Daylight Saving Time.

Persons who do not meet the requirements to respond to the notice and have no commercial interest in the substance may submit a voluntary Declaration of Non-Engagement form for the notice. The form is available on the Chemical Substances Web site at www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca.

Persons, including companies, that are not subject to the notice but that have a current or future interest in triclosan, may identify themselves as a “stakeholder” for the substance, using the Stakeholder Identification Form from the Chemicals Substances Web site at www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca. Please specify your activity or potential activity with the substance (e.g. import, manufacture, use, export). The person will be included in any future mailings regarding this substance and may be contacted for further information regarding your activity and interest in this substance.

The Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health are also inviting the submission of additional information that is deemed beneficial by interested stakeholders. Organizations that may be interested in submitting additional information in response to this invitation include those that manufacture, import, export or use this substance whether alone, in a mixture, in a product or in a manufactured item.

Compliance with the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (hereinafter referred to as the “Act”) is mandatory pursuant to subsections 272(1) and 272.1(1) of the Act. Amendments to the fine scheme of the Act came into force on June 22, 2012. Subsections 272(2), (3) and (4) and 272.1(2), (3) and (4) of the Act set the penalties for persons who commit an offence under the Act.
