Health Canada's New Substances Assessment and Control Bureau is a part of the New Substances program that is administered by Health Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada. The New Substances program regulates substances (chemicals, polymers, organisms) that are new to Canada. We do an environmental and indirect human health assessment on the substances. I work specifically in the group that deals with substances used in products regulated under the F&DA, which are also subject to the NSNR/CEPA. In September 2001, the New Substances Notification Regulations (NSNR) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA) came into effect for substances in products regulated by the Food & Drugs Act. Substances affected include those used in pharmaceuticals, medical devices, cosmetics and personal care products, veterinary drugs, food additives, novel foods, biologics (including genetic therapies) and natural health products.
