EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the notice.)

On October 8, 2011, the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health announced, as part of the second phase of the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP 2), in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, Vol. 145, No. 41, that nine groupings of substances including approximately 500 substances have been selected as priorities for action, and planned to be assessed and managed, where appropriate, over the next five years. These substances have been selected for further action based on the categorization exercise completed in 2006, and new information received as part of the first phase of the Chemicals Management Plan.

A grouping of selenium-containing substances will be assessed and is part of this notice. The group is based on a common moiety of ecological concern (selenium). Selenium-containing substances have a wide range of industrial, commercial and consumer uses, including manufacture of electronics, ceramics and glass, as a component of pigments and as an accelerator in rubber vulcanization. Various forms of selenium are also released from coal mines, uranium mines and other metal mines and are associated with multiple resource- and industrial-based sectors. Selenium-containing substances were prioritized for further assessment during categorization and have been identified both domestically and internationally to be priorities for assessment. To efficiently assess and effectively manage exposure and risk, all sources of the moiety need to be considered. This provides opportunities for efficiencies and collaboration internationally.

The selenium-containing substances grouping consists of 29 substances and the Notice with respect to certain selenium-containing substances applies to 23 substances for which information is required. The information collected from this notice will inform the risk assessment and, if necessary, risk management for all of these substances.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This explanatory note is not part of the Notice.)

CANADIAN AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARDS (CAAQS) FOR PM2.5 AND OZONE

Fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and ground-level ozone (ozone) are the two major components of smog, one of the most recognizable air quality problems in Canada. There is clear scientific evidence that PM2.5 and ozone can aggravate existing medical conditions such as asthma, heart disease and diabetes. Short-term or daily increases in ozone and PM2.5 levels are associated with increased hospital admissions, medical visits and premature mortality. Long-term exposure (e.g. cumulative or over the course of a year) to PM2.5 is also linked to increased premature mortality. The science confirms the need for short-term ambient air quality standards for PM2.5 and ozone, as well as long-term standards for PM2.5.

Additionally, PM2.5 and ozone can cause haze and reduced visibility, and can be detrimental to vegetation and man-made structures.

The Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards (CAAQS) are health-based numerical values of outdoor air concentrations of pollutants intended to drive continuous air quality improvement in Canada. The CAAQS were developed collaboratively by Health Canada, Environment Canada, the provinces and territories, and stakeholders from industry, health, environmental and aboriginal organizations through a consensus-based process steered by the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME).

The table in the Annex of this Notice provides the numerical values for the CAAQS for PM2.5 and ozone effective in 2015 and 2020. It also provides the associated metric, or method of calculation, to determine how the measured ambient concentrations of PM2.5 and ozone compare with the CAAQS.

The CAAQS replace the current Canada-wide Standards (CWS) for short-term levels of PM2.5 and ozone. (see footnote 3) The CAAQS are not only more ambitious than the CWS, but are also more comprehensive, with the inclusion of an annual PM2.5 standard.

The CAAQS are a key element of a new collaborative approach among federal, provincial, and territorial governments for reducing air pollution in Canada called the Air Quality Management System (AQMS). The AQMS, including the CAAQS, was endorsed by the CCME in October 2012.

The AQMS is comprehensive; it examines all significant emission sources of air pollution, and provides a consistent, yet flexible, framework to implement air quality management actions.

These actions will be guided by the Air Zone (see footnote 4) Management Framework (AZMF), which outlines four air quality management levels with threshold values based on the CAAQS that encourage progressively more rigorous actions by jurisdictions as air quality approaches or exceeds the standard. The management levels are summarized in the table below.

Provinces and territories will lead air quality management guided by the AZMF to select the management actions tailored to each air zone.

In addition, the AQMS delineates Canada in six regional airsheds that cut across jurisdictional boundaries and that have similar air quality characteristics or air movement patterns. They will serve as the basis for interjurisdictional collaboration to address air quality issues.

Other elements of the AQMS include industrial emissions requirements to achieve a consistent base level of performance for major emitters across the country and collaboration to reduce emissions from mobile sources. The AQMS also includes representative, timely, and easily accessible monitoring and reporting on air quality.

Under sections 68 and 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), the Ministers of the Environment and of Health have conducted a screening assessment of the 52 substances listed above. The substances included in this assessment were identified as priorities because they had been identified as posing a high hazard to human health based on classifications by other national or international agencies for carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, developmental toxicity or reproductive toxicity. Fifteen of the 52 substances were also determined to meet the categorization criteria for persistence or bioaccumulation, and inherent toxicity to human or non-human organisms, under subsection 73(1) of CEPA 1999.

To establish whether certain high hazard substances were currently being manufactured in or imported into Canada, a survey was conducted by issuing a Notice with respect to selected substances identified as priority for action pursuant to paragraphs 71(1)(a) and (b) of CEPA 1999. The notice was published in Part Ⅰ of the Canada Gazette on March 4, 2006. An additional survey was conducted by issuing a Notice with respect to certain inanimate substances (chemicals) on the Domestic Substances List pursuant to paragraph 71(1)(b) of CEPA 1999. The notice was published in Part Ⅰ of the Canada Gazette on October 3, 2009. The two surveys revealed no reports of industrial activities (import or manufacture) with respect to these substances above the reporting threshold of 100 kg per year for the specified reporting years. These substances are hence deemed not in commerce in Canada above the threshold of 100 kg for the relevant reporting year. Additional entry characterization was conducted to identify direct exposure potential to the general population in Canada. No information was found on current uses or releases of these substances in Canada. Therefore, the likelihood of exposure to these substances in Canada resulting from commercial activity is low, and hence the potential risks to human health or the environment are considered to be low.

Given the lack of any significant commercial activity for these substances, no further collection or analysis of information relevant to the persistence, bioaccumulation and toxicological effects of these substances, beyond what was done for categorization, has been conducted. Therefore, the decisions on human health hazard potential, and persistence, bioaccumulation and aquatic toxicity properties made during categorization remain unchanged.

Conclusion

Based on available information, and until new information is received indicating that these 52 substances are entering, or may enter the environment, from commercial activity or from other sources, it is concluded that these substances are currently not entering or not likely to enter 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 constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends or that constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health. Therefore, it is concluded that they do not meet any of the criteria as set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999.

As substances listed on the DSL, import and manufacture of these substances in Canada are not currently subject to notification under subsection 81(1). Given their potential high hazard for human health, there is concern that new activities with the above-mentioned substances which have not been identified or assessed under CEPA 1999 could lead to the substances meeting the criteria set out in section 64 of the Act. Therefore, the DSL is amended pursuant to subsection 87(3) of CEPA 1999 to indicate that the above-mentioned substances are subject to the significant new activity provisions specified under subsection 81(3) of the Act, and to ensure that any significant new activity in relation to any one of these substances in quantities greater than 100 kg/year is declared and will undergo ecological and human health assessments as specified in section 83 of the Act, prior to the substances being considered for introduction into Canada.
