CME proposes collaboration with Ministry of the Environment on improving regulations under Toxics Reduction Act

Published on November 04, 2009

CME wrote to the Ministry of Environment (MOE) on November 2 in support of the Ontario government’s desire to regulate toxic substances and protect the health of Ontarians, while calling attention toward the cumulative cost burden of the many new MOE regulations made under the Toxics Reduction Act, 2009. CME members are typically users of a wide number of substances, leaving CME members more susceptible to costs and burden associated with compliance.

CME members have implemented pollution prevention plans for many years now and fully realize the benefits of being environmental responsible members of their communities. However, we are concerned about the amount of regulatory burden that the proposed legislation may add to manufacturers.

CME is willing to work with the Ministry of Environment toward developing guidance materials.  We also wish to remain engaged with the Ministry as it moves forward with the other sections of the Act that still need to be addressed through regulation including the Substances of Concern.
