    • (a) uses 100 kg or more of triclosan in a calendar year in the manufacture of cosmetics, natural health products or drugs; or
    • (b) imports 100 kg or more of triclosan in a calendar year contained in cosmetics, natural health products or drugs.
  • (2) The Notice does not apply to quantities of triclosan used to manufacture products that are exclusively destined for export or in products that are in transit through Canada.
  • (3) The Notice applies to any person or class of persons who is the successor or assignee of the persons identified in subsection 2(1).

3 Activities for which the plan is to be prepared

The Minister requires any person or class of persons identified in section 2 to prepare and implement a plan in relation to the following activities:

  • (1) Manufacture of cosmetics, natural health products or drugs that contain triclosan; or
  • (2) Importation of cosmetics, natural health products or drugs that contain triclosan.

4 Factors to consider in preparing the plan

The Minister requires any person or class of persons identified in section 2 to consider the following factors when preparing their plan:

  • (1) Triclosan is toxic under paragraph 64(a) of the Act and has been added to the List of Toxic Substances in Schedule 1 of the Act on June 22, 2018. According to the screening assessment published on November 26, 2016, triclosan is entering or may be entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term effect on the environment or its biological diversity.footnote 3
  • (2) The risk management objective for triclosan is to reduce the quantity of triclosan released to the aquatic environment as a result of the use by consumers of triclosan-containing products that are imported into or manufactured in Canada.
  • (3) Any person or class of persons subject to the Final Notice in the 2020 calendar year must endeavour to achieve and maintain a minimum reduction of 30% of the total mass of triclosan that, in a year, is used to manufacture products or that is contained in certain products that are imported into Canada from the base year level. The base year is the calendar year in which the person becomes subject to the Notice, or at the selection of the person, any year prior, but no earlier than 2011.
  • (4) Any person or class of persons subject to the Final Notice in the 2021 calendar year or any calendar year thereafter must endeavour to achieve and maintain a minimum reduction of 95% of the total mass of triclosan that, in a year, is used to manufacture products or that is contained in certain products that are imported into Canada from the base year level. The base year is the calendar year when the person becomes subject to the Notice.
  • (5) A person or class of persons subject to the Final Notice must consider the use of alternative substances to triclosan that would reduce or minimize harmful effects to the environment and to human health while complying with all other relevant existing legislation. Considerations of any alternatives should include the following :
    • (a) “…[T]he combined exposure from [triclosan’s] transformation product, methyl-triclosan, and from chemicals such as triclocarban that have similar mode of action and use patterns, could also contribute to the potential for harm.”footnote 3
    • (b) “…[E]vidence indicates that methyl-triclosan is likely to be both more persistent and more bioaccumulative than triclosan.”footnote 3
    • (c) Phenol, 2-phenoxy-, trichloro deriv. (CAS RN 64111-81-5), also known as Trichloro-2-hydroxydiphenyl ether or triclosan refers to structural isomers of triclosan. The substance is considered to be inherently toxic to non-human organisms and to meet the criteria for both persistence and bioaccumulationfootnote 4 as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations. Due to its hazardous properties, this substance is subject to a Significant New Activity Order under CEPA.
    • (d) Refer to Health Canada’s Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist which is used to communicate that certain substances may be prohibited or restricted for use in cosmetics (e.g. Methylisothiazolinone and Methylisothiazolinone/Methylchloroisothiazolinone).
    • (e) Consider conducting an assessment of hazards and potential risks of any alternative.
  • (6) In preparing a plan, a person or class of persons subject to the Final Notice should give priority to pollution prevention activities.

5 Content of the plan

A person or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice is to determine the appropriate content of that person’s plan; however, the plan must meet all the requirements of the Notice. The plan must also contain the information required to file the Declaration of Preparation referred to in section 8 of the Notice and have the capacity to generate the information required to file the Declaration of Implementation referred to in section 10 of the Notice.

6 Use of a plan prepared or implemented for another purpose

Under subsection 57(1) of the Act, a person or class of persons may use a pollution prevention plan prepared or implemented for another purpose to satisfy the requirements of this Notice. Under subsection 57(2) of the Act, where a person uses a plan that does not meet all the requirements of the Notice, the person must either amend the plan so that it meets all of those requirements or prepare an additional plan that meets the remainder of those requirements. A person using an existing plan must still file the Declaration of Preparation referred to in section 8 of the Notice, the Declaration of Implementation referred to in section 10 of the Notice, and, if applicable, any amended declarations referred to in section 11 of the Notice.

7 Period to prepare the plan

  • (1) The Minister requires all those subject to the Final Notice in the 2020 calendar year, to prepare a plan no later than 12 months from October 10, 2020.
  • (2) The Minister requires all those who become subject to the Final Notice in the 2021 calendar year or any calendar year thereafter, to prepare a plan no later than 12 months from the date of becoming subject to the Notice.

10 Deadline to submit the Declaration of Implementation

Under subsection 58(2) of the Act, any person or class of persons identified in section 2 of the Notice must, within 30 days after the end of the period given to implement the plan as specified in section 9 or 13, file a written “Declaration that a Pollution Prevention Plan Has Been Implemented.” This Declaration should be submitted to the Minister, using the online form that contains the information set out in Schedule 5 of the Notice.

11 Filing of amended Declarations

Subsection 58(3) of the Act requires any person or class of persons specified in section 2 of the Notice to file an amended Declaration of Preparation or an amended Declaration of Implementation if, at any time after the filing, the information submitted has become false or misleading.

  • (3) any extended period.

14 Application for waiver of factors to consider

Under subsection 56(5) of the Act, the Minister may waive the requirement for a person or class of persons to consider a factor in preparing the plan specified in section 4 if the Minister is of the opinion that it is neither reasonable nor practicable to consider such a factor. The decision to grant a waiver will be based on the reasons provided by that person or class of persons in a “Request for Waiver of the Requirement to Consider a Factor or Factors.” This request should be submitted within 60 days before the expiry of the period to prepare the plan as referred to in section 7 or before the expiry of any extended period using the online form that contains the information set out in Schedule 2 of the Notice.
