Meet CEPA requirements for industrial chemicals with experienced technical and regulatory expertise

While the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) outlines robust guidelines on toxic substances to help protect human health and the environment, regulatory nuances can be challenging to overcome. Exponent has the expertise to help you navigate complex chemical review evaluations and comply with CEPA 1999 requirements.

How can Exponent help you successfully navigate screenings and evaluations for new and existing chemicals in Canada?

Environment and Climate Change Canada has the authority to regulate new and existing chemicals under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999). Exponent's regulatory experts, chemists, toxicologists, ecotoxicologists, and environmental and exposure assessment professionals have a wide range of experience in managing complex projects relating to toxic substances.

We provide technical and regulatory consulting for CEPA and toxic chemicals to assist with navigating the new chemical review process and comply with all other CEPA 1999 requirements. With our broad experience, Exponent is also well suited to consult on the relationship between CEPA 1999 and other regulations governing consumer products, pesticides, foods, drugs, and cosmetics.
