The Government of Canada conducts risk assessments of substances under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) to determine whether they present or may present a risk to human health or to the environment.

Risk assessment outcome

  • Risk assessment outcomes are based upon a comparison of levels to which Canadians may be exposed to these substances and levels associated with critical health effects.
    • It was determined that the risk to human health from calcium 2-ethylhexanoate is considered to be low.
    • It was also determined that 2-ethylhexyl-2-ethylhexanoate may pose a risk to human health.
  • Based upon the outcome of the ERC Approach, calcium 2-ethylhexanoate and 2-ethylhexyl 2-ethylhexanoate are considered unlikely to be causing ecological harm.
