Canada | The Draft Screening Assessment Aromatic Amines Group was published for a 60 day public comment period ending on October 14, 2020.
Considering all available lines of evidence presented in this draft screening assessment, there is low risk of harm to the environment from NDPhA, P1NA, 2-aminophenol, MBOCA, 44PD, dimethylaniline, diphenylamine and 2-naphthyl anthranilate. It is proposed to conclude that the eight substances in the Aromatic Amines Group do not meet the criteria under paragraphs 64(a) or (b) of CEPA as they are 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 or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.
On the basis of the information presented in this draft screening assessment, it is proposed to conclude that dimethylaniline meets the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA as it is entering or may enter the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.
