Participate in RPRA’s proposed 2022 RRCEA program fees consultation
The Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA) is consulting on the proposed 2022 RRCEA program fees for producers and revised General Fee-Setting Policy until April 25, 2022. Producers obligated under Ontario’s Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 (RRCEA) regulations include producers of:
- Blue Box materials
- Hazardous and Special Products (HSP)
- Information Technology, Telecommunications and Audio-Visual (ITT/AV) equipment
RRCEA program fees are charges that producers pay to RPRA annually to cover its costs related to building and operating the Registry and compliance and enforcement activities. These are not to be confused with the fees to be charged for the cost of collection etc.
This proposal outlines the proposed 2022 RRCEA program fees and revisions to the General Fee-Setting Policy and gives an overview of RPRA’s Cost Allocation Methodology. The proposed fees are estimates based on known information available at this time.
RPRA held two webinars earlier this week to walk through the proposal, answer questions and gain feedback from registrants and other interested stakeholders:
Session 1: Tires, Lighting, ITT/AV Equipment and Batteries
Session 2: Blue Box Materials and Hazardous and Special Products
Further feedback can be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
All feedback must be received by RPRA on or before April 25, 2022.

When will producers pay fees in 2022?
Producers pay fees as part of their annual supply data report submission, or initial registration process for new programs. Supply reporting deadlines for 2022 have not yet been determined. RPRA will communicate directly with producers on their program specific reporting deadlines and how to submit their report and pay fees in the coming weeks.
More information on reporting requirements can be found on the program pages linked above. If you have questions about reporting, please reach out to the Compliance and Registry Team at email@example.com or 1-833-600-0530.
