ANNEX

Summary of the draft screening assessment of naphthenic acids and naphthenic acids, calcium salts

Pursuant to section 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of two substances referred to collectively under the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP) as the naphthenic acids and salts group, hereinafter referred to as the commercial naphthenic acids group. Substances in this group were identified as priorities for assessment as they met the categorization criteria under subsection 73(1) of CEPA .

The Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Numbers (CAS RNs), their Domestic Substances List (DSL) names and their common name or abbreviation are listed in the table below.

This assessment addresses two commercial NAs obtained via the extraction of petroleum distillates. Nineteen other commercial NAs have been or are being addressed through various approaches under the CMP.footnote 2 The commercial NAs differ from complex mixtures of naphthenic acids present as a by-product in oil-sand processed water (OSPW) generated from oil sands mining, extraction and processing of bitumen. Activities to better understand OSPW naphthenic acids are occurring under the Canada-Alberta Joint Oil Sands Monitoring Program (JOSM). In addition, Environment and Climate Change Canada is proposing to add naphthenic acids and their salts that are present in waste generated by processing of oil sands to the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI), beginning in the 2020 reporting year.

In Canada, NAs and calcium naphthenates were not reported to be manufactured above the reporting threshold in 2011 in response to a survey under section 71 of CEPA. Import quantities reported were in the range of 100 000 to 1 000 000 kg for NAs and from 1 000 to 10 000 kg for calcium naphthenates, according to information submitted under section 71 of CEPA.

In Canada and internationally, NAs are mainly found in lubricants and greases, and in paints and coatings that are intended for professional/industrial use only. Lubricants and greases containing NAs are used primarily in the industrial, transportation and aviation sectors, while paints and coatings containing NAs are used in the automotive and industrial sectors. NAs have also been identified as a component of inks used in the manufacture of polymeric coatings used to package some foods. No use of calcium naphthenates in products available to consumers was identified.

The ecological risks of NAs and calcium naphthenates were characterized using the ecological risk classification of organic substances (ERC). The ERC is a risk-based approach that employs multiple metrics for both hazard and exposure based on weighted consideration of multiple lines of evidence for determining risk classification. Hazard profiles are based primarily on metrics regarding mode of toxic action, chemical reactivity, food web−derived internal toxicity thresholds, bioavailability, and chemical and biological activity. Metrics considered in the exposure profiles include potential emission rate, overall persistence, and long-range transport potential. A risk matrix is used to assign a low, moderate or high level of potential concern to substances based on their hazard and exposure profiles. The ERC identified NAs and calcium naphthenates as having a low potential to cause ecological harm.

Considering all available lines of evidence presented in this draft screening assessment, there is a low risk of harm to the environment from NAs and calcium naphthenates. It is proposed to conclude that NAs and calcium naphthenates do not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or (b) of CEPA, as they are not 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 or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

NAs and calcium naphthenates were not identified as posing a high hazard to human health on the basis of absence of classifications by other national or international agencies for carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, developmental toxicity or reproductive toxicity. In addition, exposure of the general population to NAs and calcium naphthenates through environmental media, food, or the use of products available to consumers is expected to be minimal and the potential risk to human health is considered to be low.

On the basis of the information presented in this draft screening assessment, it is proposed to conclude that NAs and calcium naphthenates do not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA, as they are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Proposed conclusion

It is therefore proposed to conclude that NAs and calcium naphthenates do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.

The draft screening assessment for these substances is available on the Canada.ca (Chemical Substances) website.

Summary of the draft screening assessment of 10 fatty acids and derivatives

Pursuant to section 68 or 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of 10 of 16 substances referred to collectively under the Chemicals Management Plan as the Fatty Acids and Derivatives Group. These 10 substances were identified as priorities for assessment as they met categorization criteria under subsection 73(1) of CEPA or were considered a priority on the basis of other considerations. Of the 16 substances, 4 were subsequently determined to be of low concern through other approaches, and proposed decisions for these substances are provided in separate reports.footnote 3, footnote 4 In addition, 2 substances were placed into another substance group, to which they are more appropriately suited, on the basis of chemical structure and uses.footnote 5 Accordingly, this screening assessment addresses the 10 substances listed in the table below. The 10 substances addressed in this draft screening assessment report will hereinafter be referred to as the Fatty Acids and Derivatives Group.

Of the 10 fatty acids and derivatives, 4 were reported, pursuant to a survey under section 71 of CEPA, to have been manufactured in Canada in 2011, at quantities of 1 430 kg for tall oil acid, 10 000–100 000 kg for potassium tallate and 100–1 000 kg each for dimer acid and trimer acid. Of the 10 substances, 7 were reported to have been imported into Canada the same year, at quantities of 1 000–10 000 kg for ALA, 120 412 kg for tung oil, 6 317 473 kg for tall oil acid, 47 992 kg for potassium tallate, 293 472 kg for dimer acid, 1 088 638 kg for trimer acid and 6 470 kg for ethylhexyl cocoate. The remaining 3 substances, undecylenic acid; fats and glyceridic oils, margosa; and evening primrose oil, were not reported to be manufactured in or imported into Canada in 2011 above the reporting threshold of 100 kg.

Undecylenic acid and ALA are naturally occurring compounds and the remaining substances in this group are derived from natural sources such as plants. The substances in the Fatty Acids and Derivatives Group have a number of reported uses including lubricants and greases, adhesives and sealants, paints and coatings, fuels and related products, and food packaging. Some of these products are available to consumers. Several of the substances included in the Fatty Acids and Derivatives Group are used in cosmetics, as well as in natural and non-prescription health products.

The ecological risks of the substances in the Fatty Acids and Derivatives Group were characterized using the ecological risk classification of organic substances (ERC), which is a risk-based approach that employs multiple metrics for both hazard and exposure based on weighted consideration of multiple lines of evidence for determining risk classification. Hazard profiles are established based principally on metrics regarding mode of toxic action, chemical reactivity, food web–derived internal toxicity thresholds, bioavailability, and chemical and biological activity. Metrics considered in the exposure profiles include potential emission rate, overall persistence, and long-range transport potential. A risk matrix is used to assign a low, moderate or high level of potential concern to substances based on their hazard and exposure profiles. The ERC identified the substances in this assessment as having a low-to-moderate potential to cause ecological harm.

Considering all available lines of evidence presented in this draft screening assessment, there is a low risk of harm to the environment from 10 substances in the Fatty Acids and Derivatives Group. It is proposed to conclude that undecylenic acid; ALA; tung oil; fats and glyceridic oils, margosa; tall oil acid; potassium tallate; evening primrose oil; dimer acid; trimer acid; and ethylhexyl cocoate do not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or (b) of CEPA as they are not 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 or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

ALA was assessed together with a group of aliphatic acids by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in 2014. ALA and the major components of fats and glyceridic oils, margosa; tall oil acid; evening primrose oil; dimer acid; trimer acid and the free fatty acids of ethylhexyl cocoate were not identified by the OECD as possessing properties indicating a hazard for human health for systemic health effects, as supported by the toxicity information of tung oil.

The European Food Safety Authority concluded in 2010 that laboratory studies on the conjugated form of a major component of tung oil did not indicate a risk for genotoxicity, reproductive toxicity or carcinogenicity.

In the Multi-Chemical Tiered I Human Health Risk Assessments carried out by the Australian government Department of Health in 2017, dimer acid was considered as not to pose unreasonable risk to human health.

Based on information from the above-noted international assessments, ALA; tung oil; fats and glyceridic oils, margosa; tall oil acid; potassium tallate; evening primrose oil; dimer acid and trimer acid were not identified as having systemic health effects of concern, and risk to human health is considered to be low.

General population exposure to undecylenic acid can occur from its use as a flavouring agent in certain foods, from cosmetics, and from natural health products. Exposure to ethylhexyl cocoate can occur from its use in cosmetics. The available health effects information on undecylenic acid and its sodium salt, as well as on ethylhexyl cocoate and its hydrolyzed products, indicates effects on the weight of the body/organs and effects on clinical chemistry parameters. The margins of exposure between estimated levels of exposure for both these substances and the critical effect levels in laboratory studies are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases.

On the basis of the information presented in this draft screening assessment, it is proposed to conclude that undecylenic acid; ALA; tung oil; fats and glyceridic oils, margosa; tall oil acid; potassium tallate; evening primrose oil; dimer acid; trimer acid; and ethylhexyl cocoate do not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA as they are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Therefore, it is proposed to conclude that undecylenic acid; ALA; tung oil; fats and glyceridic oils, margosa; tall oil acid; potassium tallate; evening primrose oil; dimer acid; trimer acid; and ethylhexyl cocoate do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.

Proposed conclusion

It is proposed to conclude that the 10 fatty acids and derivatives do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.

The draft screening assessment for these substances is available on the Canada.ca (Chemical Substances) website.

CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1999

Final guideline for Canadian drinking water quality for chromium

Pursuant to subsection 55(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, the Minister of Health hereby gives notice of a final guideline for Canadian drinking water quality for chromium. The technical document for this guideline is available on the Water Quality website. This document underwent a public consultation period of 60 days in 2015 and was updated to take into consideration the comments received.

August 16, 2018

ANNEX

Guideline

A maximum acceptable concentration (MAC) of 0.05 mg/L (50 µg/L) is established for total chromium in drinking water.

Executive summary

Chromium occurs naturally in small amounts in rocks and soils, some of which is released into the aquatic environment through weathering and erosion processes. More than 70% of chromium in the environment comes from anthropogenic sources, such as non-ferrous base metal smelters, refineries, leather tanning industries, urban storm water runoff, effluent streams from pulp and paper mills and discharges from thermal generating stations. Chromium can exist in nine different oxidation states, with the trivalent [Cr(III)] and hexavalent [Cr(VI)] forms being the most common in the environment.

The guideline technical document reviews and assesses all identified health risks associated with chromium in drinking water. It incorporates new studies and approaches and takes into consideration the availability of appropriate treatment technology. Based on this review, the drinking water guideline for total chromium is a maximum acceptable concentration (MAC) of 0.05 mg/L (50 µg/L).

Health effects

Chromium toxicity in humans varies depending on the form of the compound, its oxidation state and the route of exposure. Studies show that there is little or no toxicity associated with the trivalent form of chromium, whereas hexavalent chromium compounds are classified as carcinogenic to humans by the inhalation route of exposure, based on sufficient evidence in humans and animals.

The critical health effect on which to establish a guideline for chromium in drinking water is diffuse hyperplasia of the small intestine, as it is the most sensitive endpoint and a precursor of tumour formation. The physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models for mice and humans and benchmark dose (BMD) modelling were used to determine appropriate external doses in humans from animal data. The MAC for chromium in drinking water is based on the health effects of Cr(VI) and considers the cancer and non-cancer effects together.

Exposure

Background levels of chromium in surface water and groundwater are a direct function of regional geology, mineral weathering processes, sediment loading rates and precipitation patterns. Average concentrations of total chromium in uncontaminated surface waters are generally below 1 µg/L. Chromium levels in groundwater can be significantly higher than levels in surface water.

Canadians can be exposed to total chromium through its presence in food, drinking water, dust, soil and air. The single most important source of exposure to Cr(VI) is drinking water. In order to be most protective of human health, this assessment assumes that all the chromium present in drinking water is in the form of Cr(VI).

Analysis and treatment

There are several approved analytical methods available to measure total chromium [i.e. the sum of Cr(III) and Cr(VI)] in drinking water at levels well below the MAC.

Given the presence of oxidants and disinfectants in treated water, Cr(III) is likely to be oxidized to Cr(VI) after treatment. For this reason, it is important to ensure the removal of both chromium species. At the municipal level, the best available technologies for the treatment of total chromium are coagulation/filtration, ion exchange, reverse osmosis and lime softening. Reduction/coagulation/filtration, weak-base ion exchange and strong-base ion exchange are effective technologies for removing Cr(VI) from drinking water.

At the residential level, drinking water treatment technologies able to be certified to NSF International (NSF) standards for reduction of total chromium, as well as Cr(VI) and Cr(III) individually, include adsorption, reverse osmosis and distillation. It is important to note that reverse osmosis and distillation systems should be installed only at the point of use, as the treated water may be corrosive to internal plumbing components.

International considerations

Other organizations have set guidelines or regulations pertaining to the concentration of chromium in drinking water. The provisional guideline value of the World Health Organization, the standard of the European Union and the guideline value of Australia are all set at 0.05 mg/L for chromium in drinking water. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has established a standard of 0.1 mg/L for total chromium in drinking water.
