Data gathered under section 71 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA 1999)
Information received in response to notices published in the Canada Gazette under sections 46 and 71 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act 1999 (CEPA). These notices target certain substances under the Chemicals Management Plan.
To increase transparency and to facilitate access to information on substances in commerce in Canada, these documents provide the non-confidential information collected by the Government of Canada under the respective notices.
Important information about these summaries:
Some information gathered under these initiatives was considered Confidential Business Information (CBI) by the submitters. While these summaries and the Excel compilations were prepared using the full dataset (including CBI), CBI and protected information were masked in both documents prior to publication. Masking refers to the process whereby the information is used in such a manner so that CBI and protected information are not revealed. This can be done by, for example, aggregating data or by providing quantity ranges. For instances when masking could not adequately provide protection, data was removed.
Protected information, such as names of submitters, names of their customers and suppliers, or any information that could identify a submitter, was also removed.
The section 46 and 71 notices targeted information to address data needs identified for the substances. As such, the information gathered and reported here does not represent the entire range of commercial activities in Canada with the substances. The specific reporting requirements, exclusions and definitions can be found in each applicable notice.
It should be noted that these documents do not include an assessment of the potential risks these substances may represent for the environment or the health of Canadians.
