NOTICE REQUIRING THE PREPARATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF POLLUTION PREVENTION PLANS IN RESPECT OF REACTION PRODUCTS OF 2-PROPANONE WITH DIPHENYLAMINE (PREPOD), CAS RN 68412-48-6, IN INDUSTRIAL EFFLUENTS

Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the provisions of subsection 56(1) of Part 4 of the Canadian Environment Protection Act, 1999 (the Act), the Minister of the Environment requires any person or class of persons described in section 2 of the Notice, to prepare and implement a pollution prevention plan in respect of reaction products of 2-propanone with diphenylamine (PREPOD), CAS RN footnote 1 68412-48-6, which is specified on the List of Toxic Substances in Schedule 1 of the Act.

1 Definitions

The definitions in this section apply to this Notice.

2 Person or class of persons required to prepare and implement a plan

(1) The Notice applies to any person or class of persons who, on the date of publication of the Notice or any time thereafter, owns or operates an industrial facility that

(2) The Notice applies to any person or class of persons who is the successor or assignee of the persons identified in subsection 2(1).

3 Activities in relation to which the plan is to be prepared

The Minister requires any person or class of persons identified in section 2 to prepare and implement a plan in relation to the manufacture and use of PREPOD.

4 Factors to consider in preparing the plan

The Minister requires any person or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice to consider the following factors when preparing their plan:

(1) Final screening assessment report

PREPOD was found to be toxic under section 64 of the Act and was added to the List of Toxic Substances in Schedule 1 of the Act on December 14, 2016. According to the final screening assessment report, PREPOD is entering or may be 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. The assessment report for PREPOD is available online.

(2) Risk management objective of the Notice

The risk management objective (RMO) for this Notice is to reduce the presence of PREPOD in industrial effluents by reducing the concentration of the DIPDMA component below its LoQ of 0.12 ng/L footnote 2.

(3) Sampling and analysis

Sampling and analysis of samples should be completed as described below:

(4) Priority to pollution prevention methods

In preparing a plan, a person or class of persons subject to the Notice should give first consideration to pollution prevention activities prior to considering pollution control activities.

5 Period within which the plan is to be prepared

(1) For a person or class of persons becoming subject to the Notice before January 1, 2020, the Minister requires that the plan be prepared, and implementation initiated, no later than July 1, 2021, and that a Declaration of Preparation be submitted to ECCC by July 31, 2021, including the results from the first sampling event as specified in section 9 of the Notice.

(2) For a person or class of persons becoming subject to the Notice on or after January 1, 2020, the Minister requires that the plan be prepared, and implementation initiated, no later than 18 months from the date they become subject to the Notice, and that a Declaration of Preparation be submitted to ECCC within 30 days after the end of that period, including the results from the first sampling event, as specified in section 9 of the Notice.

Under section 59 of the Act, any person or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice must keep a copy of the plan at the place in Canada in relation to which the plan is prepared. Where a single plan is prepared for more than one facility, a copy of that plan must be kept at each facility location.

Any person or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice must keep the plan, and any records pertaining to the plan, while engaged in the manufacture or use of PREPOD and for a minimum of five years after they have ceased these activities.

9 Declaration of Preparation

Under subsection 58(1) of the Act, any person or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice must file in writing to the Minister, within 30 days after the end of the period within which the plan is to be prepared as specified in section 5 or extended under section 14, a “Declaration That a Pollution Prevention Plan Has Been Prepared and Is Being Implemented — Pollution Prevention Planning Notice in Respect of Reaction Products of 2-Propanone with Diphenylamine (PREPOD), CAS RN 68412-48-6, in Industrial Effluents.” This Declaration must be submitted to the Minister, using the form that contains the information set out in Schedule 1 of the Notice.
