Are you affected by the new regulations?
The EEE Regulation applies to producers, haulers, processors, refurbishers and producer responsibility organizations (PROs) of information technology, telecommunications and audio visual (ITT/AV) equipment and lighting weighing 250 kg or less and supplied or used in Ontario.
The Batteries Regulation applies to producers, haulers, processors, refurbishers and PROs of single-use and rechargeable batteries weighing 5 kg or less and sold separately in Ontario.
Producers, haulers, processors and refurbishers of ITT/AV are required to register with RPRA on or before November 30, 2020.
Producers of batteries are also required to register on or before November 30, 2020. The registration deadline for battery haulers, processors and refurbishers was March 31, 2020.
Collectors of ITT/AV or batteries, including operators of sites where EEE or battery waste is generated, are not required to register. However, producers (or service providers on their behalf) are required to identify and report the collection sites in their collection system by April 30, 2021.
How to register
Contact our Compliance and Registry Team if:
- You are a steward in the OES program
