Summary of Decision:
We reviewed and considered the feedback received during the comment period for the "Hazardous Waste Digital Reporting Service Modernization" regulatory changes. Comments contributed to the regulatory amendments, and we will continue to consider comments related to the implementation as we transition to the new digital reporting service.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
As part of our plan to make government work smarter, with processes that are simpler, faster and more cost-effective, we are modernizing hazardous waste reporting by shifting from paper to electronic reports.
The proposed changes to Regulation 347 in combination with a new proposed regulation under the RRCEA are anticipated to save businesses time and money.
A modern digital reporting service with mobile capability would make it easier and faster for the regulated community to meet their reporting requirements, reducing administrative burden and costs that the regulated community experiences today.
Combining digital services under the Authority would see a larger group of users sharing common costs and benefiting from a streamlined digital reporting service.

We are seeking feedback on proposed regulatory changes that would modernize and transition the delivery of hazardous waste digital reporting services to the Resource Productivity & Recovery Authority. These changes would make reporting simpler, faster and more cost-effective.
