Canada | The performance measurement evaluation for Dioxins and Furans was published

Performance measurement evaluations provide Canadians with information on the effectiveness of risk management actions in place for substances found to be toxic under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999). The risk management, human health and environmental objectives are systematically evaluated using robust data and expert analysis.

Performance measurement evaluation reports are available for:

(*) 1,3-Butadiene, 2-methyl-, (Isoprene)
(*) 2-Butanone, oxime (Butanone oxime)
(*) 2-Naphthalenol, 1-[(4-methyl-2-nitrophenyl)azo]- (Pigment Red 3)
(*) Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP)
(*) Bisphenol A (BPA)
(*) Dioxins and Furans

(*) Lead
(*) Mercury
(*) Nonylphenol and its ethoxylates

(*) Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)

Rolling workplan

The following table provides a high- level rolling workplan of performance measurement evaluations of risk management strategies for certain substances underway or to be initiated over the next four years. Substances were selected as set out in the Performance Measurement Evaluation Strategy for toxic substances. Note that the substances listed and timeframes outlined in this table may be subject to change. This rolling workplan is provided for information purposes only.
