Dioxins and Furans
Canada Wide Standards - General Information, Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME)
  • Development of the Canada-wide Standard for Dioxins and Furans
    "Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), commonly known as dioxins and furans, are toxic, persistent, bioaccumulative, and result predominantly from human activity. Due to their extraordinary environmental persistence and capacity to accumulate in biological tissues, dioxins and furans are slated for virtual elimination under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), the federal Toxic Substances Management Policy (TSMP) and the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment's (CCME) Policy for the Management of Toxic Substances (PMTS)."
