Stewardship Ontario invites stakeholders to complete a survey and participate in a webinar about its proposal for a Simplified Approach to fee setting.
The proposal was introduced in an October notice and discussed at the Annual Steward Meeting. If approved, the change would eliminate the need for stewards to report supply-to-market data to Stewardship Ontario in the future.
Stakeholders are encouraged to review details about the proposed Simplified Approach provided in a Discussion Paper and a Question & Answer document.
The webinar is scheduled for January 6, 2022, at 10 am ET.
Stewards can also complete a brief online survey on the proposal:
Comments and questions about the proposal can be submitted prior to the webinar to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Surveys and other feedback on the Simplified Approach are due no later than January 13, 2022.
If there is broad steward support for the proposal, it will be submitted to the Stewardship Ontario Administrator and to the Resource Productivity & Recovery Authority (RPRA) for approval. RPRA will undertake its own consultation prior to considering approval. We will strive to have the proposal considered before stewards need to begin preparing their 2022 reports. If approved, stewards will not need to submit a data report to Stewardship Ontario in spring 2022.
We hope everyone has a safe, healthy and happy holiday season and look forward to you joining us in January.
