Ontario’s RPRA Consults on Proposed 2021 Registry Fees for Tires, Batteries and Electronics

Consultation open for feedback until May 14, 2021

The Authority is consulting on its proposed 2021 Registry fees for tires, batteries and electronics. These are fees that registrants pay to the Authority annually to cover the Authority’s costs related to building and operating the Registry, and compliance and enforcement activities.

As in 2020, producers obligated under the Tires Regulation, the Batteries Regulation and the Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) Regulation are required to pay Registry fees to the Authority in 2021 (i.e. producers of tires, batteries and information technology, telecommunications and audio-visual (ITT/AV) equipment).

This proposal outlines the proposed 2021 Registry fees for tires, batteries and electronics.

The Authority intends to consult on its proposed 2021 Registry fees for Blue Box materials and Hazardous and Special Products (HSP) once the final Blue Box and HSP regulations are released. It is expected that producers obligated under the Blue Box and HSP regulations will also be required to pay Registry fees to the Authority in 2021.

Provide your feedback

We are hosting two webinars to review the proposed fees and gain feedback from registrants and other interested stakeholders. The same information will be presented at each session. Sign up for a consultation webinar below:

Stakeholders can also submit their feedback by email to [email protected]. All feedback must be received by the Authority on or before May 14, 2021.

The Authority will consider the feedback received during this consultation to finalize the 2021 Registry fees for tires, batteries and electronics. The final fees will be posted to the Authority’s website, as well as a report summarizing the consultation process and stakeholder feedback, and stakeholders will be notified when they have been posted.
