RPRA does not vet PROs before listing them on the website. Any business that registers as a PRO will be listed. Producers should do their own due diligence when determining which PRO to work with.
As of January 1, 2021, producers are required to establish and operate a collection system for ITT/AV that meets the accessibility requirements in the regulation. Producers must ensure that all ITT/AV collected is managed regardless of what their minimum management requirements are.
Producers have the choice of establishing and operating their own collection and management systems or working with one or more producer responsibility organizations (PROs) registered with the Authority to meet their obligations.
Please contact the Compliance Team at 833-600-0530 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss other requirements under the EEE Regulation.
An ITT/AV producer qualifies for an exemption if its management requirement for a performance period is not more than 3.5 tonnes with respect to ITT/AV or not more than 350 kg with respect to lighting. The producer is exempt from the following:
- Registering and reporting to the Authority;
- Establishing a collection and management system and meeting a management requirement; and
- Promotion and education requirements.
The management requirement percentage increases each year in 2023, 2024, and 2025, therefore while you may be exempt in 2021 and 2022, you might not be exempt in subsequent years. Therefore, a producer must verify that they continue to meet the exemption each year.
If a producer is exempt and therefore not required to register with the Authority, they must retain records related to the weight of ITT/AV supplied into Ontario each year and provide them to the Authority upon request.
Producers are encouraged to confirm their exemption with the Compliance Team at 833-600-0530 or email@example.com.
Yes. You are still required to register with the Authority Registry even if you already have an existing account.
As shown in the table below, verification of the ITT/AV supply data reported in 2020 and 2021 is not required. Verification of supply data for ITT/AV will be required starting in 2022 for products supplied in 2020. All subsequent years of supply data are required to be verified when the data is reported.
For more information on the required verification and audit of data, view the Registry Procedure: EEE Verification and Audit.
You are an information technology, telecommunications, audio-visual (ITT/AV) producer if you market ITT/AV into Ontario and:
- Are the brand holder of the EEE and have residency in Canada;
- If there is no resident brand holder, have residency in Ontario and import EEE from outside of Ontario;
- If there is no resident importer, have residency in Ontario and market directly to consumers in Ontario (e.g., online sales); or
- If there is no resident marketer, do not have residency in Ontario and market directly to consumers in Ontario (e.g., online sales).
Even if you do not meet the above definition, there may be circumstances where you qualify as a producer. Read the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulation for more detail or contact the Compliance and Registry Team for guidance at firstname.lastname@example.org or (647) 496-0530 or toll-free at (833) 600-0530.
For regulatory purposes, we need to know your legal name — the name you are incorporated under. We also need to know your business operating name if it is different from your legal business name to add to our published list of registrants. The list of registrants will be available on our website to allow registrants to interact with one another and to provide information to the public.
For example, if you are a registered collector and your legal name is 123456789 Ontario Ltd. and your business operating name is “Jack’s Garage,” a member of the public looking for a place to drop off used tires will need to know the name you are operating under to identify your location.
To create a Registry account with the Authority, you will need to provide:
- CRA Business Number (BN)
- Legal Business Name
- Business address and phone number
- Address of where you work (if different from the main office)
- Contact information for your billing contact (this may also be added later)
