EXPLANATORY NOTE

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

Description

This Significant New Activity Notice is a legal instrument adopted by the Minister of the Environment (the Minister) pursuant to section 85 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (the Act) to apply the Significant New Activity (SNAc) provisions of that Act to nickel, [1,3-dihydro-5,6-bis[[(2-hydroxy-1-naphthalenyl)methylene]amino]-2H-benzimidazol-2onato(2-)-N5,N6,O5,O6]-, (SP-4-2)-, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 42844-93-9. The Notice is now in force. It is therefore mandatory to meet all the requirements of the Notice should a person intend to use the substance for a significant new activity as defined in the Notice.footnote2

A Significant New Activity Notice does not constitute an endorsement from the Department of the Environment or the Government of Canada of the substance to which it relates, or an exemption from any other laws or regulations that are in force in Canada and that may apply to this substance or activities involving the substance.

Applicability of the Significant New Activity Notice

The Notice requires that any person (individual or corporation) engaging in a significant new activity in relation to nickel, [1,3-dihydro-5,6-bis[[(2-hydroxy-1-naphthalenyl)methylene]amino]-2H-benzimidazol-2-onato(2-)-N5,N6,O5,O6]-, (SP-4-2)-, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 42844-93-9, submit a Significant New Activity notification (SNAN) containing all of the information prescribed in the Notice at least 90 days prior to using the substance for the significant new activity.

In order to address the human toxicity concerns, the Notice requires notification in relation to any use of the substance in a quantity of more than 10 kg in any one calendar year to manufacture consumer products intended for spray applications when the concentration of the substance is greater than or equal to 0.1% by weight in the product matrix. For example, notification is required if a person plans to use the substance to manufacture spray paints for consumers where there is more than 10 kg of the substance involved in a calendar year and concentration is greater than or equals 0.1% by weight. The Notice targets any use of the substance to manufacture consumer products intended for spray applications to which the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) applies, or in a cosmetic, as defined in the Food and Drugs Act. A SNAN is required 90 days before the use of the substance in a SNAc.

Activities not subject to the Notice

The following activities are not significant new activities:

Uses of the substance that are regulated under the Acts of Parliament listed in Schedule 2 of the Act, including the Pest Control Products Act, the Fertilizers Act and the Feeds Act, are excluded from the Notice. The Notice also does not apply to transient reaction intermediates, impurities, contaminants, partially unreacted materials, or in some circumstances to items such as, but not limited to, wastes, mixtures, or manufactured items. However, it should be noted that individual components of a mixture may be subject to notification under the SNAc provisions of the Act. See subsection 81(6) and section 3 of the Act, and section 3 of the Guidelines for the Notification and Testing of New Substances: Chemicals and Polymers for additional information.

Activities involving the use of the substance as a research and development substance, as a site-limited intermediate or to manufacture an export-only product are excluded from the Notice. The terms “research and development substance” and “site-limited intermediate substance” are defined in subsection 1(1) of the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers).

Information to be submitted

The Notice sets out the information that must be provided to the Minister 90 days before the day on which the substance nickel, [1,3-dihydro-5,6-bis[[(2-hydroxy-1-naphthalenyl)methylene]amino]-2H-benzimidazol-2-onato(2-)-N5,N6,O5,O6]-, (SP-4-2)-, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 42844-93-9, is used for a significant new activity. The Department of the Environment and the Department of Health will use the information submitted in the SNAN to conduct human health and environmental risk assessments within 90 days after the complete information is received.

The earlier assessment of the substance identified potential concerns associated with uses of the nickel-containing substance in consumer products intended for spray applications. Nickel is a known human carcinogen. The Significant New Activity Notice is issued to gather toxicity information in the event that the substance is used in a consumer products intended for spray application to ensure that the substance will undergo further assessment before significant new activities are undertaken.

The information requirements in the Notice relate to general information in respect of the substance, details surrounding its use, exposure information, and toxicity to human health. Some of the information requirements reference the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers).

Additional guidance on preparing a SNAN can be found in section 1.3 of the Guidelines for the Notification and Testing of New Substances: Chemicals and Polymers.

Transitional provision

A transitional provision is included in the Notice to facilitate compliance by persons who may already have imported or manufactured more than 10 kg of the substance and started activities to manufacture products with it in concentrations that are greater than or equal to 0.1% by weight in the product matrix. The Notice comes into force immediately. However, a threshold of more than or equal to 50 000 kg per calendar year and a concentration equal to or greater than 0.1% by weight apply for the period between the publication of the Notice and June 23, 2019. On June 24, 2019, the threshold for this significant new activity will be lowered to 10 kg per calendar year and the concentration will remain greater than or equal to 0.1% by weight.

Compliance

When assessing whether or not a substance is subject to SNAc provisions,footnote3 a person is expected to make use of information in their possession or to which they may reasonably have access. This means information in any of the notifier’s offices worldwide or other locations where the notifier can reasonably have access to the information. For example, manufacturers are expected to have access to their formulations, while importers or users of a substance, mixture, or product are expected to have access to import records, usage information and the relevant Safety Data Sheets (SDSs).footnote4

Although an SDS is an important source of information on the composition of a product, it should be noted that the goal of the SDS is to protect the health of workers in the workplace from specific hazards of chemical products. Therefore, an SDS may not list all product ingredients that may be subject to a SNAc notice due to human health or environmental concerns. Any person requiring more detailed information on product composition is encouraged to contact their supplier.

If any information becomes available that reasonably supports the conclusion that the substance nickel, [1,3-dihydro-5,6-bis[[(2-hydroxy-1-naphthalenyl)methylene]amino]2H-benzimidazol-2-onato(2-)-N5,N6,O5,O6]-, (SP-4-2)-, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 42844-93-9 is toxic or capable of becoming toxic, the person who is in possession of the information and is involved in activities with the substance is obligated, under section 70 of the Act, to provide that information to the Minister without delay.

A company can submit a SNAN on behalf of its clients. For example, in cases where a person takes possession or control of a substance from another person, they may not be required to submit a SNAN, under certain conditions, if their activities were covered by an original SNAN submitted by the person from whom they obtained the substance. The Substances Management Advisory Note Clarification in relation to the submission of Significant New Activity Notifications in application of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 provides more detail on this subject.

Under section 86 of the Act, any person who transfers the physical possession or control of a substance subject to a SNAc notice must notify all persons to whom the physical possession or control is transferred of the obligation to comply with the Notice, including the obligation to notify the Minister of any significant new activity and to provide all the required information outlined above.

A pre-notification consultation (PNC) is recommended for notifiers who wish to consult with the program during the planning or preparation of their SNAN to discuss any questions or concerns they have about the prescribed information and test plans.

Where a person has questions concerning their obligations to comply with a notice, believes they may be out of compliance, or would like to request a PNC, they are encouraged to discuss their particular circumstances with the program by contacting the Substances Management Information Line.footnote5

The Act is enforced in accordance with the publicly available Compliance and Enforcement Policy for the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. In instances of non-compliance, consideration is given to factors such as the nature of the alleged violation, potential harm, intent, and history of compliance.
