Development of the Hazardous and Special Products Supply Data Verification Procedure

RPRA consulted on its draft Hazardous and Special Products (HSP) Supply Data Verification Procedure from Wednesday, June 1 to Wednesday, July 6, 2022. Producers of categories A (oil filters, non-refillable pressurized containers) and B (oil containers, antifreeze, solvents, paints and coatings, pesticides, refillable pressurized containers) will reference the procedure when submitting their first Supply Data Verification Report to RPRA in 2022.

RPRA hosted a webinar on Wednesday, June 15 to discuss the proposed principles and methodologies used in the draft procedure. View the following webinar materials:

Those directly affected were encouraged to submit feedback on the draft procedure to consultations@rpra.ca by July 6, 2022. RPRA will consider all feedback received during the consultation period when finalizing the procedure. The final procedure will be posted on the consultation page once finalized.

Background

Under the HSP Regulation, producers of oil filters, oil containers, antifreeze, solvents, paints and coatings, pesticides, and non-refillable and refillable pressurized containers are required to report new supply information to RPRA each year. Supply data for HSP materials can only be reported to RPRA by a producer in accordance with the Hazardous and Special Products Verification and Audit Procedure.

Starting in 2022, producers will need to submit a verification report to verify the supply data being reported to RPRA. Producers will need to work with a qualified person to complete a verification report to verify the supply data being submitted.
