DOMESTIC SUBSTANCES LIST
Pursuant to the New Substances Notification Regulations (NSNR), the Domestic Substances List provides an exhaustive listing of substances which are known to be in commerce for the manufacture of products regulated under the Food and Drugs Act (FDA).
Products not on the DSL list are therefore subject to the NSNR. A submission is prepared to Health Canada and Environment Canada who jointly determine, based on our submission, whether the manufacturing or importing of the substance poses any risk to the health of Canadians or the environment. MEDERA can prepare your DSL submissions to help you gain approval for materials to be imported and used in manufacture.
