Canada's 2-MBS update

Posted Date: 
Tuesday, February 14, 2017

There is a risk of harm to organisms and the environment by benzenesulfonamide, 2-methyl- , also known as 2-MBS.

The substance, which is primarily used in intermediate fluorescent pigment and some nail polish, is known to potentially cause development issues and effects on the liver and kidneys.

However, the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (Cepa), has stated that the substance is not entering the environment in a large enough quantity to endanger Canadians health.

The Canadian government will publish a final screening on the substance in March 2018. For now, stakeholders can submit comments on the draft screening analysis.

Testimonial

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
