On August 24, 2007, the Government announced that it will require industry and other stakeholders to provide information on how they are safely managing and using 19 chemical substances identified as high priorities for action under the federal Chemicals Management Plan.

The 19 substances comprise the third in a series of 12 batches of high-priority substances that have been identified as substances in use requiring review. The Government will assess the information it receives to decide on appropriate actions which may be required for the protection of health and environment.

For a list of the substances in the third batch, and for more information, see the Canada Gazette, volume 141, No.33 – August 18, 2007. Also see:  http://www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca/challenge-defi/batch-lot_3_e.html
