Final screening assessment for Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain F53: En14-268/2017E-PDF

"Pursuant to paragraph 74(b) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), the Minister of the Environment, and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain F53 (S. cerevisiae F53). S. cerevisiae strain F53 is a yeast that has characteristics in common with other strains of the species S. cerevisiae. S. cerevisiae is known for its fermentative ability and ethanol production. It has been used widely in bakery and brewery industries, and thus has been in close association with humans for centuries. Multiple potential uses of S. cerevisiae in consumer, industrial, commercial and agricultural sectors exist. These include the production of, or the presence in, food, natural health products such as probiotics, feeds, biofuels and biochemicals for the manufacture of cosmetics, perfumes and therapeutic drugs, as well as bioremediation and wastewater treatment. Based on the information available, it is concluded that S. cerevisiae strain F53 does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or (b) of CEPA as it is 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. It is also concluded that S. cerevisiae strain F53 does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA as it is 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"--Synopsis, p. iii, iv.
