7 August 2017 / Canada, Environmental Protection Act
The Canadian government has imposed ministerial conditions for the manufacture or import of bisphenol dicyanate.
The action – under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act – is a response to a notice given on 22 May of plans to use the substance. Because the government suspects that it is toxic or capable of becoming toxic as defined by section 64 of Cepa, it is imposing certain restrictions on its manufacture and import.
These include recordkeeping requirements, aquatic and environmental release restrictions, and waste collection provisions.
The conditions took effect on 11 July.
