Canada: Domestic Substances List Amended

June 22, 2022

After conducting screening assessment of calcium 2-ethylhexanoate as per provisions in Canada's Chemicals Management Plan (CMP), it was concluded that calcium 2-ethylhexanoate has properties of concern that could lead to a risk to human health if exposure levels exceeded allowable limits. Hence, the Domestic Substances List has been amended by deleting the entry of Calcium 2-ethylhexanoate. It is used in paints, coatings, inks and toners, which can be found in or on metal, paper, or wood products available to consumers. Other commercial applications of the substance include pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
