Through compliance efforts, OES ensures that our stewards and remitters comply with program requirements and their obligations under the Waste Diversion Act 2002. Our stewards, remitters and other stakeholders share a mutual interest in compliance designed to reinforce program fairness and protect program integrity.
Compliance is supported by an effective risk management approach. Where necessary, OES employs a range of approaches to enforce compliance consistent with the terms and conditions of our agreements, the program plan and related rules.
Steward compliance comprises several aspects:
- Identification of stewards that are obligated to report but are not registered with OES
- Ensuring obligated stewards have filed monthly reports as per OES requirements and the Rules for Stewards with Respect to the Payment of EEE Fees under the Waste Diversion Act (2002) and the WEEE program plan
- Verification of the accuracy of the reports filed
A quarterly dashboard of compliance actions to inform stakeholders and provide assurance regarding our ongoing compliance program is posted here.
Compliance actions are in effect for OES Service Providers, and may be found in the Service Provider section of this web site.
