New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers)

Version of the schedule from 2006-03-22 to 2015-02-10:

SCHEDULE 9(Subsection 2(2), paragraphs 10(a) and 18(2)(b), subparagraph 18(2)(d)(i) and paragraph 18(2)(e))Information Respecting Reduced Regulatory Requirement Polymers and Other Polymers and Biopolymers (1 000 kg)

  • 1 The type of polymer:

    • (a) a reduced regulatory requirement polymer;

    • (b) a polymer on the NDSL;

    • (c) a polymer with all of its reactants on the DSL or the NDSL; or

    • (d) a polymer with one or more reactants not on either the DSL or NDSL.

  • 2 The new substances pre-notification consultation number if it has been assigned and if known.

  • 3 The chemical name of the polymer, established in accordance with the chemical nomenclature rules of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry or the Chemical Abstracts Service.

  • 4 The trade names of the polymer and the synonyms of its chemical name, if known.

  • 5 The CAS registry number of the polymer, if such a number can be assigned.

  • 6 The molecular formula of the polymer.

  • 7 The structural formula of the polymer, if possible, or else a partial structural formula.

  • 8 The reaction scheme if the polymer is a reduced regulatory requirement polymer, unless it is a polymer referred in paragraph 9(c) of these Regulations.

  • 9 The following physical and chemical data in respect of the polymer:

    • (a) its number average molecular weight (Mn); and

    • (b) the maximum concentrations, expressed as a percentage, of all residual constituents having molecular weights of less than 500 daltons and of all residual constituents having molecular weights of less than 1 000 daltons.

  • 10 The known impurities present and their concentration by weight.

  • 11 The composition of the polymer including constituents — such as monomers and other reactants, additives, stabilizers and solvents — which constituents are present when the polymer is tested, and their concentration by weight.

  • 12 A material safety data sheet in respect of the polymer, if available.

  • 13 The following exposure information respecting the polymer:

    • (a) the anticipated annual quantity to be manufactured, if applicable;

    • (b) the anticipated annual quantity to be imported, if applicable;

    • (c) the anticipated uses within Canada; and

    • (d) if the polymer is not a reduced regulatory requirement polymer,

      • (i) the anticipated concentration of the polymer in products and, if known, in end-use products,

      • (ii) the anticipated degree of direct human exposure to the polymer, including concentration, duration, frequency and circumstances of exposure and factors that may limit direct human exposure,

      • (iii) whether the polymer is anticipated to be used in products intended for use by or for children, and

      • (iv) if known, the three sites in Canada where the greatest quantity of the polymer, manufactured or imported by the person, is anticipated to be used or processed and the estimated quantity by site.

  • 14 A summary of all other information and test data in respect of the polymer that are in the possession of the manufacturer or importer and that are relevant to identifying hazards to the environment and human health and the degree of environmental and public exposure to the polymer.

  • 15 The identification of the other government agencies, either outside or within Canada, that the person has notified of the manufacture or importation of the polymer and, if known, the agency’s file number, the outcome of the assessment and the risk management actions imposed by those agencies.
