- Development of the Canada-wide Standards for Mercury
"The process for developing Canada-wide Standards for Mercury has been on going since 1998. Canada-wide standards have been developed for several significant mercury-emitting sectors, and for select products containing mercury. These include standards for mercury emissions from base metal smelters and incinerators, and for mercury-containing lamps and mercury from dental amalgam wastes. A CWS for mercury emissions from coal-fired electric power generation is currently under development."
