If you are a Steward who supplies (or has supplied) designated EEE into the Ontario market at any point since the commencement of the OES program, you are required to:
- File and submit monthly reports for quantities of EEE materials for all obligated time periods;
- Pay fees in accordance with the appropriate Fee schedule(s) in the Program Rules and requirements. A steward may be eligible for a quarterly or annual remittance depending on their annual EHF remittance level. Please contact customer service to determine your eligibility.
Stewards—or their Remitters/Sub-Remitters—file monthly reports by entering the number of units of obligated electronics they supplied into the Ontario marketplace through the Stewardship Registration and Reporting system. The system automatically calculates monthly remittance (based on data supplied by the Steward/Remitter/Sub-Remitter) and generates online invoices. For help with this process, please review the Program Rules.
Program fees are based on the cost recovery funding model. Fees may be adjusted to reflect changes in costs to manage each material. For more information, visit Cost Recovery page.
Steward reporting and fee obligations commenced on April 1, 2009 with Phase 1 of the program. The expanded Revised (Phase 1 and 2) program began April 1, 2010.
