Once a chemical is found to pose a risk, scientists and policy people with the Chemicals Management Plan design a strategy to manage the chemical and the risk it poses. They might decide that it is important to phase out the use or production of the substance because it is too dangerous. They might propose regulations to limit or make the use of a chemical safer.

At every step along the way there are Public Comment Periods open to the people of Canada to comment on a draft document about a chemical. These comments, and the CMP Science Committee and Stakeholder Advisory Council help the government make decisions about how to manage a chemical or group of chemicals for the safety of Canadians and our environment.
