A Significant New Activity (SNAc) Notice has been published for each of the substances that require for any activity, more than 100 kg/yr of the substance. Information regarding uses, quantities, and data specified in the SNAc must be submitted to Environment & Climate Change Canada 90 days before the activity begins.
