 Assessment of nanomaterials under the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers)

The purpose of this advisory note is to inform Canadian manufacturers and importers that new substances that fall within the nano-scale size range (1 -100 nanometres) must be notified under the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers).

It is also meant to inform notifiers that information on particle size and particle size distribution will likely be requested for substances that fall in certain chemical classes.
