Administrative Penalties Regulation made under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 (RRCEA)
Summary of Proposal:
As part of our ongoing commitment to protecting the environment, we are strengthening our enforcement tools to hold regulated parties who contravene the legislation and/or regulations accountable for non-compliance.
This includes proposing a new administrative penalties regulation to help ensure that producers, manufacturers and importers of tires, batteries, electrical and electronic equipment, blue box materials and hazardous and special products comply with requirements for the collection and end-of-life management of the materials they supply in Ontario.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
There are no anticipated regulatory or cost impacts to consumers with this proposal.
The proposed regulation will not create new operational requirements for producers or any financial burdens for producers who adhere to the RRCEA, the Tires Regulation, the Batteries Regulation, the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulation, the Blue Box Regulation and the Hazardous and Special Products Regulation. Administrative penalties will only be issued to producers who do not comply with the RRCEA and its regulations.
