Starting January 1, 2021, Electronic and Electrical Equipment (EEE) regulation comes into effect as directed by Ontario’s Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP).


The recovery, recycling and reuse of end-of life electronics, in Ontario has transitioned to the individual producer responsibility regulatory framework outlined in the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016.


The Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA) is the regulator established by the Ontario government to enforce the new resource recovery requirements for electronics recycling. To learn more about the new regulatory framework, the wind up of Ontario Electronics Stewardship (OES) and the Authority, visit rpra.ca.
