Teresa Tomchak Releases Litigation Bulletin: Change to Regulations Regarding PCBs

With Parliament recently adopting significant changes to the handling of PCBs, Farris lawyer Teresa Tomchak, has written a bulletin that summarizes the changes.

The new PCB Regulations adopted pursuant to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 set specific deadlines for ending the use of PCBs in concentrations at or above 50 mg/kg, eliminating all PCBs currently in storage and limiting the period of time PCBs can be stored before being destroyed. The Regulations also establish practises for the management of the remaining PCBs in use (i.e. those with content less than 50mg/kg) until their eventual elimination.
