Thursday, August 31, 2017

The government of Canada has published information in response to the mandatory surveys under section 71 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (Cepa) for seven groups of substances.

 These substance groups are:

-methylenediphenyl diisocyanate and diamine (MDI/MDA);

-several substituted diphenylamine substances;

-a group of phthalates;

-aromatic azo and benzidine- based subtances;

-certain organic flame retardants;

-select selenium-containing substances; and

- cobalt-containing substances.

 The information provided by Cepa aims to target the substances of interest under Canada’s Chemicals Management Plan. To help increase the transparency and allow easier access to information on the substances in commerce in Canada, these documents will provide non-confidential information that is collected by the Canadian government. The documents do not and will not include an assessment of the risks the substances may pose.

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.
