HRAI Succeeds in Talks with RPRA on Ontario Producer Fee Schedule for Thermostat Manufacturers

Every now and then we win one, and today was the day!  As quoted by one of the five thermostat manufacturers that are shouldering the financial load on the Ontario thermostat collection program.

Thermostat manufacturers were grateful that HRAI’s letter and meetings with Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA) had an impact on their decision to keep the annual registration fee at $7,500 CAD, rather than raising it to $15,000 CAD as originally proposed.

Following the RPRA’s consultation on its proposed 2022 Registry Fees for Hazardous and Special Products (HSP), RPRA has released the final Registry Fee Schedule. These annual fees applied to registrants, described in section 41 of the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act (RRCEA, 2016), are set and collected by the Authority to cover costs related to building and operating the Registry, as well as compliance and enforcement activities.
