Compliance has changed in Ontario and it's a pivotal time for the electronics industry.
Producers of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) and batteries are required to register with the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority(RPRA).
EEE is defined as:
- IT equipment
- Telecommunications equipment
- AV equipment
Are you a brand holder, first importer or marketer of EEE into Ontario? If yes, you are very likely considered a Producer of EEE in Ontario.
Why does that matter to you?
As a Producer you will have new individual legal obligations to collect and manage Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment(WEEE) under the Government of Ontario. That's where we come in.
Ryse Solutions can assist you in determining whether you have registration obligations under the EEE or Batteries Regulations, help you comply, and provide you with all the data you need to report.
What is Individual Producer Responsibility (IPR)?
Individual Producer Responsibility means that as a Producer, you are individually responsible for the product and/or packaging you produce/supply into the Ontario marketplace at the end of its life. As a Producer, you have a diversion target, which is the amount of product and/or packaging you will legally be required to collect and manage at its end-of-life.
Ryse Solutions is a registered Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) with over 50 years combined compliance experience. We are here to answer your questions, assist you as you navigate these new waters, and be your partner in compliance.
