RPRA launches consultation on developing Resource Recovery Performance Audit Procedures for Batteries, ITT/AV, Lighting, and HSP

Under the BatteriesElectrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE), and Hazardous and Special Products (HSP) Regulations, producers are obligated to collect and manage their obligated material(s) to recover resources and meet their minimum performance requirements through reuse, refurbishing, or recycling.

RPRA has retained BDO Canada LLP (BDO) to develop Resource Recovery Performance Audit Procedures for batteries, ITT/AV, lighting, and HSP.

These procedures will be referenced when producers without a PRO, producers who have identified they will not use their PRO for meeting their performance obligations, and PROs reporting for producer clients and on their own activities submit their audit report at the time of Performance Reporting.

During Phase One of the consultation, BDO will be engaging with PROs to gather information about their company’s operations and share preliminary insights. These insights will be taken into consideration during the development of the initial draft of the procedures.

A public webinar will be held later this year during Phase Two of the consultation to review the initial draft of the procedures and gather additional feedback. PROs, along with other stakeholders, will be invited to participate again at that time.
