Health Canada's Chemicals Management Plan (CMP)

"Environment Canada and Health Canada's Chemicals Management Plan (CMP) has a mandate of reducing the risks posed by chemicals to Canadians and their environment. It does so by assessing chemicals used in Canada and taking action on those found to be harmful. In 2006, the government triaged 23,000 chemicals that had been in commercial use during the 1980s, identifying 4,300 substances for further attention. The goal of the CMP is to assess and where needed regulate, ban, or otherwise manage the risk of those substances by 2020. As such, depending on your manufacturing process, and the outcome of a substances risk assessment, this could have potentially dramatic and far reaching consequences to your business."
