“The purpose of the Code of Practice is to minimize releases of tetrabutyltin to the aquatic environment by identifying best management procedures and practices for activities involving the import, distribution, manufacture and use of tetrabutyltin. The Code of Practice does not apply to importers of the substance as a component of dry blended vinyl compounds, or to the transportation of tetrabutyltin which is addressed by the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. The Code of Practice provides best management practices for the following activities: packaging, storage and secondary containment; handling and dispensing; uncontrolled, unplanned or accidental releases. It also details best management practices concerning empty packaging, waste disposal, record keeping, reporting, training and management systems"--Purpose, p. 2.
