Registry Resources for HSP

Registry Procedures

Under s. 52 of the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016, the Registrar may establish forms and procedures with respect to submitting information through the Registry or to the Authority. These must be published in the Registry.

Regulations made under the Act can incorporate documents by reference and can require compliance with those documents. The types of documents that may be incorporated by reference include registry procedures. An amendment to an incorporated document can also be incorporated by reference. This is achieved when notice of the amendment has been published by the Ministry in The Ontario Gazette or in the registry under the Environmental Bill of Rights, 1993.

Compliance Bulletins

The Registrar issues compliance bulletins to assist people in understanding what the regulatory requirements are and how to meet them. Compliance bulletins may also contain information about how particular regulatory requirements are being implemented.

Registry Reporting Guides

Registry Guides provide step-by-step instructions on how to register and submit reports in the Registry as well as answer FAQs about the Portal.
