Canada | Final Screening Assessment for Substances Identified as Being of Low Concern Using the Ecological Risk Classification of Inorganic Substances and Three Human Health Science Approaches
Pursuant to sections 68 or 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of 21 substances. These substances were identified as priorities for assessment as they met categorization criteria under subsection 73(1) of CEPA or were considered a priority on the basis of other human health concerns. The Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Numbers and their Domestic Substances List (DSL) names are listed in the table below.
Considering all available lines of evidence presented in this screening assessment, there is low risk of harm to the environment from the 21 substances in this assessment. It is concluded that these substances 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.
