Stewardship Ontario Submits Recommendation to RPRA to Proceed with Simplified Approach to Blue Box Fee Setting
January 24, 2022
Following consultation with stakeholders, Stewardship Ontario has submitted to the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA) its recommendation to amend the Blue Box Transition Plan to include the proposed simplified approach to fee setting.
RPRA will undertake its own consultation prior to considering approval. RPRA’s consultation period will run from Friday, January 21 to Friday, February 4, 2022. Stakeholders can submit feedback on the simplified approach by email to email@example.com. For more information, visit RPRA’s consultation webpage, which also houses the documents submitted by Stewardship Ontario as part of its recommendation to RPRA: Blue Box Program Transition Plan: Revised Fee Setting Methodology for 2023-2025 Addendum and Consultation Report.
If approved, the change would eliminate the need for most stewards to report supply-to-market data to Stewardship Ontario in the future. Stewards will be advised before they need to begin preparing their 2022 reports.
Information about the simplified approach to fee setting is available in materials from the January 6 webinar, including the presentation, replay and Q&A summary.
