pursuant to Section 69 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 /
This document has been prepared to assist notifiers responsible for complying with the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers) (the Regulations) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (the Act). These Guidelines are meant to help notifiers determine whether a substance is subject to notification under the Regulations and identify the information requirements. In addition, these Guidelines provide step-by-step instructions for the completion of a New Substances Notification (NSN) package; user-friendly flow charts to aid in determining the appropriate Schedule to file (see Appendix 1 of these Guidelines); elaborate technical considerations of the information requirements; detailed instructions on how to complete the NSN reporting form; identification of appropriate test procedures and practices to use; and an outline of how confidential information should be submitted. These Guidelines conclude with an explanation of how the New Substances (NS) program assesses the information submitted in an NSN package and the implications of the assessment decisions for notifiers.
