Product Stewardship Plans & Annual Reports

The Recycling Regulation under authority of the Environmental Management Act sets out the requirements for extended producer responsibility (EPR), formerly known as product stewardship, in B.C. The regulation provides producers of designated products the option of appointing an agency to carry out their duties under an approved EPR plan. To ensure outcomes and regulatory requirements are met, the province reviews and approves the EPR plans.

Every five years the producer must review their approved plan and submit any amendments or advise the director in writing that the approved plan does not require changes. Additionally, on or before July 1st in each year, a producer with an approved plan must provide an annual report and post the report on the Internet.

For the convenience of the public, the approved plans, approved amended plans and annual reports are posted here.
