Whereas any person who proposes to use, manufacture or import for a significant new activity a living organism that is on the Domestic Substances List must provide to the Minister of the Environment the information required under subsection 106(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999;

Whereas any person who proposes to use for a significant new activity a living organism that is not on the Domestic Substances List must provide to the Minister of the Environment the information required under subsection 106(4) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999;

Whereas a person may, pursuant to subsection 106(8) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, request any of the requirements to provide information under subsection 106(1), (3) or (4) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 to be waived; and

Whereas a waiver may be granted by the Minister of the Environment under subsection 106(8) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 if

  • (a) in the opinion of the Ministers, the information is not needed in order to determine whether the living organism is toxic or capable of becoming toxic;
  • (b) the living organism is to be used for a prescribed purpose or manufactured at a location where, in the opinion of the Ministers, the person requesting the waiver is able to contain the living organism so as to satisfactorily protect the environment and human health; or
  • (c) it is not, in the opinion of the Ministers, practicable or feasible to obtain the test data necessary to generate the information;
