The Canadian government has published a final screening assessment for 88 substances that finds none of them meet section 64 criteria of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (Cepa).


The finding means the substances are not currently entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that could pose a danger to human health or the environment.


A substance found to be "toxic" under section 64 would be recommended for addition to the List of Toxic Substances (schedule 1) of Cepa.


However, the screening did find that 14 of the substances may have health effects of concern if exposure were to increase. And the government says there are concerns that new activities that have not been identified or assessed could lead to their meeting Cepa toxicity criteria.
