Guidance manual for responding to : Notice with respect to perfluorohexane sulfonic acid, its salts and its precursors (PFHxS), published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on October 10, 2020.: En14-421/2020E-PDF
"This document provides guidance for responding to the Notice with respect to perfluorohexane, its salts and its precursors (PFHxS), published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, on October 10, 2020, pursuant to paragraph 71(1)(b) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA). … The notice requests information on PFHxS for the purposes of assessing whether to control, or the manner in which to control the risks posed by these substances. PFHxS, which are present in the Canadian environment, have been assessed internationally as persistent organic pollutants under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants. The purpose of the notice is to collect information on quantities and use patterns, including mixtures, products and manufactured items containing these substances, in order to identify the state of PFHxS in Canadian commerce. The information will ensure that future decision-making is based on the best available information, and that the appropriate technical and economic factors are considered in Canada’s negotiating position on the listing of PFHxS to the Stockholm Convention"--Introduction, page 5.
