ANNEX

Summary of the Ecological State of the Science Report on
Hexanedioic acid, bis(2-ethylhexyl) ester

On September 10, 2011, the final decision on the screening assessment of Hexanedioic acid, bis(2-ethylhexyl) ester (or DEHA), Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 103-23-1, was published in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, pursuant to subsection 77(6) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999). It was concluded that DEHA 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, and that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Since predicted environmental concentrations (PECs) — based largely on published monitoring data — were expected to exceed the predicted no effects concentration (PNEC) in surface waters at locations receiving effluent from municipal wastewater treatment plants, it was determined that releases of DEHA from industrial and other sources may be harming aquatic organisms in Canada. Evidence indicated that DEHA does not meet the criteria for persistence or bioaccumulation as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations of CEPA 1999.

Follow-up studies were undertaken to further quantify releases of DEHA and the levels of this substance in the Canadian environment. New information relating to industrial practices at facilities that manufacture or use DEHA was collected, and modelled PECs were recalculated, taking into account the new information. Additionally, samples of industrial wastewaters and municipal wastewater treatment plant effluents were obtained, and ambient surface water and sediment monitoring studies were undertaken in areas potentially impacted by point-source or diffuse releases of DEHA. DEHA analysis was also included in a landfill leachate study. Concentrations of DEHA in the newly collected samples were determined using two different analytical methods — both of which are less prone to analytical interference than the method used in previously published Canadian monitoring studies.

The new analytical results indicate that concentrations in municipal wastewater treatment plant effluents, surface waters and sediment in Canada are much lower than had been thought, and call into question the validity of the previously available Canadian monitoring data. Furthermore, since PECs based upon the new information (including those estimated using exposure models) are typically well below concentrations expected to cause harm to aquatic organisms, DEHA is not believed to be causing environmental harm in Canada. Therefore, DEHA is no longer considered to meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) of CEPA 1999 as it 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. Efforts to obtain information to more accurately model DEHA releases from truck cleaning facilities are ongoing, and potential risk from these sources will be considered when the needed information becomes available.

The ecological state of the science report on Hexanedioic acid, bis(2-ethylhexyl) ester is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).
