ISA Hamilton Section - Annual General Meeting
New Ontario Toxics Reduction Act and Planner Certification


The Toxics Reduction Act came into effect on January 1, 2010.  It will require approximately 2000 Ontario manufacturers, and some mining companies, to undertake toxic substance accounting, planning, and reporting, if reporting requirements are satisfied.  The plan and report must be certified by the highest ranking official at the facility who has management responsibilities.  Additional draft regulations are being planned, including the requirement for certified planners (who would also certify the plan and report).  Phil’s presentation will provide a practical overview of Ontario’s Toxic Reduction Act and the proposed training and licensure model.  He will discuss some success stories from Massachusetts industries, potential opportunities for Ontario manufacturers, and guidance on reporting.
