Fill out the questionnaire

LOOKING FOR SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO REPORTING MATERIALS GENERATED BY B2B TRANSACTIONS

Éco Entreprises Québec is asking companies to participate in defining the directions to be taken in order to find solutions to issues relating to materials generated by business-to-business transactions. Contributing companies are therefore asked to fill out, by November 28, 2013, a questionnaire that will only take fifteen minutes to complete.

ÉEQ raised the issue as part of the 2012 consultation process for the 2013 Schedule of Contributions and determined that more information would be needed to develop the next Schedule. A working group will therefore formulate solutions that are simple, low-cost and fair to all those involved. Your answers to our questionnaire will provide information to develop new Schedule application rules that are better adapted to reporting B2B-generated materials.

Thank you for your valuable cooperation.

CREDITS FOR THE 2009 SCHEDULE OF CONTRIBUTIONS

ÉEQ has calculated applicable adjustments as required by the rules for the 2009 Schedule of Contributions. A credit was therefore issued this week to companies who meet the following criteria.

Containers and Packaging Class

A $660,000 surplus is being distributed to companies who reported fibre and plastic containers and packaging, which accounted for 105% of payments collected on reported materials. Over 700 companies will receive a credit ranging from $20 to $50,000, prorated to the quantities of materials reported. To see the amount of your credit, go to the “Invoices” section of the reporting system, and click 2009.

Printed Matter Class

No credit will be issued to companies reporting materials in the Printed Matter class. Indeed, only 98.5% of sums needed were collected, and the almost $250,000 shortfall was made up with surpluses accumulated in the Printed Matter class in previous years.


CREDITS FOR PRINTED MATTER WITH
POST-CONSUMER RECYCLED CONTENT

ÉEQ is pleased to recognize the innovative companies who took measures to close the recycling loop and used printed matter with high rates of post-consumer recycled content.

Close to $900,000 will be credited for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Schedules of Contributions to companies who put printed matter on the market that meet criteria and provided adequate supporting documentation. Credits ranging from $25 to $155,000 for each Schedule will be issued by mid December.

POSTPONEMENT IN THE PUBLICATION OF THE NEW REGULATION 

The Government of Quebec has notified us that the 2013 Schedule of Contributions is not expected to take effect in 2013. We will continue to keep you informed of developments on this important issue. As you know, companies have 90 days from the publication of the Schedule to submit their Company Report.

TIPS FOR PRODUCING A COMPLIANT COMPANY REPORT

Get a head start and compile your data now! Even though the 2013 Schedule of Contributions is not yet in force, get a head start by gathering the information needed for your 2013 Company Report. Materials to consider are those put on the market between January 1 and December 31, 2012.
