Final screening assessment for Pseudomonas putida ATCC 12633, Pseudomonas putida ATCC 31483, Pseudomonas putida ATCC 31800, Pseudomonas putida ATCC 700369: En14-269/2017E-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 on four strains of Pseudomonas putida (P. putida) (ATCC 12633, ATCC 31483, ATCC 31800, ATCC 700369). P. putida strains ATCC 12633 (= type strain), ATCC 31483, ATCC 31800 and ATCC 700369 have characteristics in common with other strains of the same species. P. putida is a bacterium generally considered to have ubiquitous distribution in the environment that can adapt to varying conditions, and that thrives in soil, water and the rhizosphere of many plants. P. putida can also thrive in extreme and contaminated environments with low nutrient availability. Some members of the species P. putida are known to metabolize chemical compounds such as hydrocarbons and solvents. Furthermore, some strains can sequester and reduce heavy metals. These properties allow for potential uses of P. putida in bioremediation and biodegradation, waste water treatment, cleaning and degreasing products, and in production of enzymes and biochemicals used for industrial biocatalysis and in pharmaceuticals. Based on the information available, it is concluded that P. putida ATCC 12633, ATCC 31483, ATCC 31800 and ATCC 700369 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. It is also concluded that P. putida ATCC 12633, ATCC 31483, ATCC 31800 and ATCC 700369 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"--Synopsis, p. ii, iii.
