CEPA Legislative Review


The federal government considered a report submitted by the Parliamentary Committee on the Environment and Sustainable Development with 87 recommendations for amendments to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) related to chemicals management in Canada. The formal government response suggested that many of the recommendations can be effected within the context of the current policies and administration under the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP), while others may require further consideration before any amendments to the Act can be proposed to Parliament. In the meantime, the industry continues to liaise with federal officials to comply with the requirements of the CMP under the current Act and works to ensure it retains its status as the best chemicals management program in the world for the protection of human health and the environment.

Strong science-based data is critical in effective chemical assessment for the benefit of all Canadians
