Canada | The Draft Screening Assessment for Silver and its compounds 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 silver and its compounds. It is proposed to conclude that the seven substances in the Silver and its Compounds 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.
