On October 13, the Canada Gazette published an Official Notice listing bisphenol A as a Schedule-1 Toxic Substance under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. This Notice will pave the way for possible upcoming restrictions on the use of BPA in food contact applications for food sold in Canada. It remains to be seen what possible effect this development will have upon the policies of the European Food Safety Authority and the US Food and Drug Administration.

The Official Notice from the Canada Gazette is attached below.
