PART 4Obligations of the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health (continued)

Additions to the DSL — Polymers and Biopolymers

Marginal note:Prescribed quantity

  •  (1) With respect to the obligation of the Minister of the Environment to add a substance to the DSL, other than research and development, contained site-limited intermediate and contained export-only substances, the quantity of a polymer or a biopolymer prescribed for the purposes of subparagraph 87(1)(b)(iii) of the Act is

    • (a) in the case of a reduced regulatory requirement polymer, a quantity that exceeds 1 000 kg in any calendar year; and

    • (b) in the case of any other polymer or biopolymer, a quantity that exceeds in any calendar year

      • (i) 50 000 kg if the polymer or biopolymer is on the NDSL, or one that is not on the NDSL but all of its reactants are on the DSL or the NDSL and

        • (A) that polymer or biopolymer is released to the aquatic environment in a quantity exceeding 3 kg per day, per site, averaged monthly and after wastewater treatment, or

        • (B) the public may be significantly exposed to that polymer or biopolymer in a product, or

      • (ii) 10 000 kg, in any other case.

  • Marginal note:Prescribed information

    (2) With respect to the obligation of the Minister of the Environment to add a substance to the DSL, the information that is prescribed with respect to a polymer or a biopolymer for the purposes of paragraph 87(5)(a) of the Act is

    • (a) a notice from the person who provides the information, stating that the person has manufactured or imported the polymer or biopolymer;

    • (b) in the case of a reduced regulatory requirement polymer, the information specified in Schedule 9 and, if the reduced regulatory requirement polymer is a biopolymer, the information specified in items 1 to 3 of Schedule 2;

    • (c) in the case of a biopolymer, other than a reduced regulatory requirement polymer, the information specified in items 1 to 4 of Schedule 2, and, if the biopolymer is a nucleic acid, the information specified in items 5 and 6 of that Schedule;

    • (d) if the polymer or biopolymer, other than a reduced regulatory requirement polymer, is on the NDSL, or one that is not on the NDSL but all of its reactants are on the DSL or the NDSL,

      • (i) the information specified in Schedules 9 and 10,

      • (ii) the information specified in paragraphs 11(2)(a) and (b) if the quantity of the polymer or biopolymer exceeds 50 000 kg in a calendar year and the polymer or biopolymer is released to the aquatic environment in a quantity exceeding 3 kg per day, per site, averaged monthly and after wastewater treatment, and

      • (iii) the information specified in paragraphs 11(3)(a) and (b) if the quantity of the polymer or biopolymer exceeds 50 000 kg in a calendar year and if the public may be significantly exposed to the polymer or biopolymer in a product; and

    • (e) if the polymer or biopolymer is not on the NDSL, other than a reduced regulatory requirement polymer or a polymer or biopolymer subject to paragraph (d), the information specified in Schedules 9 and 11.
