EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This explanatory note is not part of the Significant New Activity Notice.)

Description

This Significant New Activity Notice is a legal instrument adopted by the Minister of the Environment pursuant to section 85 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA) to apply the Significant New Activity (SNAc) provisions of that Act to 1,1′-biphenyl, bis(1-methylethyl)-, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 69009-90-1. The Notice is now in force. It is therefore mandatory to meet all the requirements of the Notice should a person intend to use the substance for a significant new activity as defined in the Notice. (see footnote 1)

A Significant New Activity Notice does not constitute an endorsement from the Department of the Environment or the Government of Canada of the substance to which it relates, or an exemption from any other laws or regulations that are in force in Canada and that may apply to this substance or activities involving the substance.

Applicability of the Significant New Activity Notice

The Notice requires that any person (individual or corporation) engaging in a significant new activity in relation to 1,1′-biphenyl, bis(1-methylethyl)-, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 69009-90-1, submit a Significant New Activity Notification (SNAN) containing all of the information prescribed in the Notice at least 90 days prior to using the substance for the significant new activity.

In order to address human health concerns, the Notice targets the use of the substance to manufacture consumer products to which the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) (see footnote 2) applies and cosmetics as defined in section 2 of the Food and Drugs Act. (see footnote 3) For the manufacture of such products, notification is required 90 days before use of the substance when the concentration of the substance in the product is 1% by weight or more.

For any other activity related to consumer products or cosmetics, notification is required when, during a calendar year, the concentration of the substance in the product is 1% by weight and contains a total quantity of the substance greater than 10 kg. For example, notification would be required if a person plans to use a consumer product (for example paint) where the concentration of the substance in the product is 1% by weight or more and where there is more than 10 kg of the substance involved in a calendar year. Examples of products of concern would include, but would not be limited to, do-it-yourself products such as paints, coatings, adhesives, and sealants. Therefore, the use of the substance in such products, as defined in the Notice, would require notification. The substance is not known to be currently used in consumer products or in cosmetics in Canada.

Activities not subject to the Notice

Activities involving the use of the substance as a research and development substance, a site-limited intermediate or an export-only substance would be excluded from the Notice. The terms “research and development substance” and “site-limited intermediate substance” are defined in subsection 1(1) of the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers). (see footnote 4) An export-only substance is a substance that is manufactured or imported in Canada and destined solely for foreign markets.

This Notice does not apply to products to which the CCPSA does not apply, with the exception of cosmetics within the meaning of section 2 of the Food and Drugs Act. It also does not apply to uses of the substance that are regulated under the acts of Parliament listed in Schedule 2 of CEPA, including the Pest Control Products Act, the Fertilizers Act and the Feeds Act. The Notice also does not apply to transient reaction intermediates, impurities, contaminants, partially unreacted intermediates, or in some circumstances to items such as wastes, mixtures, or manufactured items. However, it should be noted that individual components of a mixture may be subject to notification under the SNAc provisions of CEPA. See subsection 81(6) and section 3 of CEPA, and section 3 of the Guidelines for the Notification and Testing of New Substances (Chemicals and Polymers) for additional information. (see footnote 5)

Information to be submitted

The Notice sets out the information that must be provided to the Minister 90 days before the day on which the substance 1,1′-biphenyl, bis(1-methylethyl)-, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 69009-90-1, is used for a significant new activity. The Department of the Environment and the Department of Health will use the information submitted in the SNAN to conduct human health and environmental assessments within 90 days after the complete information is received.

The assessment of the substance identified concerns associated with human health effects associated with necrosis of the liver and significant public exposure from potential new activities. The Significant New Activity Notice is issued to obtain information to ensure that the substance will undergo further assessment before significant new activities are undertaken.

The information requirements in the Notice relate to general information in respect of the substance, details surrounding its use, exposure information, and mammalian toxicity data in respect of the substance. Some of the proposed information requirements are set out in the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers). (see footnote 6)

Additional guidance on preparing a SNAN can be found in section 4 of the Guidelines for the Notification and Testing of New Substances: Chemicals and Polymers. (see footnote 7)

Transitional provision

A transitional provision is included in the Notice to facilitate compliance by persons who may already have imported or manufactured up to a 1 000 kg of the substance and started activities with it. The notice comes into force immediately. However, if the substance is used to manufacture any consumer products or any cosmetic, a threshold of 1 000 kg applies for the period between the publication of the Notice and June 24, 2018. On June 25, 2018, the threshold for this significant new activity will be lowered to 10 kg per calendar year.

Compliance

When assessing whether or not a substance is subject to the SNAc provisions, (see footnote 8) a person is expected to make use of information in their possession or to which they ought to have access. The phrase “to which they ought to have access” means information in any of the notifier’s offices worldwide or other locations where the notifier can reasonably have access to the information. For example, manufacturers are expected to have access to their formulations, while importers or users of a substance, mixture, or product are expected to have access to import records, usage information and the relevant Safety Data Sheets (SDS). (see footnote 9)

Although an SDS is an important source of information on the composition of a purchased product, it should be noted that the goal of the SDS is to protect the health of workers in the workplace from specific hazards of chemical products. Therefore, an SDS may not list all product ingredients that may be subject to a SNAc notice due to human health or environmental concerns. Any person requiring more detailed information on product composition is encouraged to contact their supplier.

If any information becomes available that reasonably supports the conclusion that the substance 1,1′-biphenyl, bis(1-methylethyl)-, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 69009-90-1, is toxic or capable of becoming toxic, the person who is in possession of the information and is involved in activities with the substance is obligated, under section 70 of CEPA, to provide that information to the Minister without delay.

A company can submit a SNAN on behalf of its clients. For example, in cases where a person takes possession or control of a substance from another person, they may not be required to submit a SNAN, under certain conditions, if their activities were covered by an original SNAN submitted by the person from whom they obtained the substance. The Substances Management Advisory Note “Clarification in relation to the submission of Significant New Activity Notifications in application of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999” provides more detail on this subject. (see footnote 10)

Under section 86 of CEPA, any person who transfers the physical possession or control of a substance subject to a SNAc notice shall notify all persons to whom the physical possession or control is transferred of the obligation to comply with the notice, including the obligation to notify the Minister of any significant new activity and to provide all the required information outlined above.

A pre-notification consultation (PNC) is recommended for notifiers who wish to consult with the program during the planning or preparation of their SNAN to discuss any questions or concerns they have about the prescribed information and test plans.

Where a person has questions concerning their obligations to comply with a notice, believes they may be out of compliance, or would like to request a PNC, they are encouraged to discuss their particular circumstances with the program by contacting the Substances Management Information Line. (see footnote 11)

CEPA is enforced in accordance with the publicly available Compliance and Enforcement Policy for the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. (see footnote 12) In instances of non-compliance, consideration is given to factors such as the nature of the alleged violation, potential harm, intent, and history of compliance.
