Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Environment Canada (EC) and Health Canada (HC) are seeking input on a planned level-of-complexity risk assessment framework for addressing the remaining priorities under the planned next phase of the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP).

Specifically, input is sought on the following aspects:
  • potential challenges with the planned framework and suggestions for addressing these challenges;
  • specific assessment approaches illustrating the different levels of complexity; and
  • how to best operationalize this framework and its potential ongoing role post-2020; and
  • suggestions on how to best operationalize the Framework in the near term and post-2020.

Canada reportedly remains on track to meet its commitments under the United Nations Environment Programme's Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) to address legacy chemicals by 2020.
