The Authority’s General Fee Setting Policy sets out the principles and rules that it applies in setting fees or other charges to recover its costs for activities related to the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016. The Authority held three rounds of consultations on the development of the policy, as well as its methodology for structuring fees and specific fee amounts for tires, the first material to be designated under the Act.
The Authority held the first round of consultations between mid-August 2017 and mid-October 2017, including webinars on October 4 & 5, 2017. The focus of the first round of consultations was on the general approach to structuring and setting fees rather than on specific categories, thresholds, timelines and fee amounts.

The second round of consultations was held between mid-December 2017 and mid-January 2018, with webinars on December 18 & 19, 2017. The consultations focused on the General Fee Setting Policy and Proposed Registry Fees for Tires, the first material expected to be designated under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 (RRCEA).

The third and final round of consultations took place between late January 2018 and mid-March 2018, including a webinar on March 9, 2018. It focused on the General Fee Setting Policy, the Fee Setting Methodology, and the Registry Fees for Tires. Read the consultation report here.
The 45-day consultation period ended on March 19, 2018. Comments received during the consultation were considered by the Authority as part of the decision-making process for the final General Fee Setting Policy, Fee Setting Methodology and 2018 Registry Fees for Tires.
